Undersized Ducts Reduce Efficiency
The homes of Terrell Hills offer unique challenges for HVAC. Many homes were originally built without air conditioning or built with only heat. Both situations require creative solutions for adding air conditioning to under-served areas of your home. The duct work for heat only systems is much smaller than for air conditioning systems. Many heat only systems were converted to air conditioning without correcting the undersized duct and high static pressure. Undersized duct reduces efficiency and can shorten the life of the air conditioning equipment. We can correct undersized duct to give you the clean, cool air your HVAC system was designed to deliver. Many of these homes are perfect candidates for Mitsubishi Ductless Mini Splits.
Since many of the homes in Terrell Hills were built in the earlier part of the 1900’s, they are not sealed very well. The windows are usually single pane, and there is not as much insulation as a newer home. High efficiency air conditioning is very important to keeping the electricity bills within a reasonable amount.
Rodents Contaminate Air
One unfortunate problem we find in Terrell Hills is rodents. All of the beautiful trees and green spaces provide great habitats for rats, raccoons, and opossums. These critters can cause huge amounts of damage to duct systems if they are able to get into the attic. Make sure to repair any penetrations large enough for animals to enter your attic. If you suspect rodents have been in your attic, make sure to have your duct work checked by a professional. These vermin can carry diseases that are airborne. Raccoons are especially troublesome, as they can transmit raccoon roundworm, and leptospirosis. Both of these diseases can be transmitted by breathing in contaminated air.
