Duct Installation & Duct Repair in Gaithersburg & Throughout Maryland

This might surprise you, but the most important factor that determines your furnace or air conditioner’s efficiency is not your unit’s AFUE or SEER. While higher ratings are certainly important, the most crucial element of your HVAC system’s efficiency is actually something much simpler–your ducts!

That’s why we’re here! James A. Wheat & Sons is one of the Maryland and Washington, DC area’s best duct installation and duct repair companies. We can optimize your ductwork to meet your needs based on your home’s size and layout as well as your HVAC system’s output.

If you want to get the absolute most out of your air conditioner or furnace, call James A. Wheat & Sons at 240-399-5051 or contact us online for duct installation or duct repair today!

Duct Installation

The most important part of installing new ducts is making sure the ductwork is the right size. When thinking about why your ducts need to be a specific size, consider this: imagine if someone told you to blow through a paper towel tube as hard as you could. It would be difficult, wouldn’t it? Now imagine that same person telling you to blow through a drinking straw as hard as possible. That’s not easy either, is it?

It’s the same with your ducts! If your ducts are too big, the blower fan is going to have to work much harder to move air all the way through your home. If your ducts are too small, the fan is going to move more air than the ducts can handle, forcing it to constantly cycle on and off. Suffice it to say, if either of these is true of your ducts, even a 95 AFUE furnace isn’t going to run very efficiently!

At James A. Wheat & Sons, we begin our duct installation process with an inspection of your home, where we take into account the size and layout of your home as well as the capacity of your HVAC system. After we do this, we can optimize your duct design and installation for your particular home.
