Get Your Home’s Ductwork Serviced by Apollo Heating & Cooling
Problem-free ductwork is essential for maintaining a home’s heating and cooling efficiency, as well as ensuring quality indoor air. By getting your ducts into top shape, expert ductwork services in Cincinnati can help you enjoy lower bills and fresher air.
Correcting Common Duct Problems
In the average home, ducts leak around 30 percent of the air they should be delivering to your rooms. This wastes heated and cooled air, and contributes to moisture problems by causing condensation. These leaks occur when the duct joints and connections to air registers and grilles aren’t tightly fit and correctly sealed. By fitting and sealing the joints with either mastic or foil-backed tape, a technician can reduce leakage to 5 percent.
Ducts that pass through unconditioned parts of the house, such as the attic, can suffer from unwanted heat loss or gain if not sufficiently insulated. A technician providing ductwork services in Cincinnati can install insulation on the ducts to improve your duct system’s energy efficiency.
Finally, a technician can inspect for ductwork design problems that impair your system’s efficiency. Some problems, such as twisted or damaged flexduct, are simple enough to correct. It’s possible to correct more complex design issues, such as undersized ducts or too many sharp turns in the duct system, but this requires more involved planning and labor.
Keeping Your Ducts Clean
Ductwork can go many years without ever requiring cleaning, but there are situations in which debris can build up in the ducts. Eventually, debris starts breaking loose and winds up in the air you breathe. Accumulated debris can also enter your system’s components and cause damage.
Check inside your ducts. If you see signs of pest infestation, such as dead insects or rodent droppings, or you find mold patches or moisture, schedule an evaluation to find out if you need duct cleaning. Ducts should also be inspected after any renovation work and once every five years to head off any developing problems.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
