Knowledgeable & Hardworking HVAC Techs

The ductwork in your home or business is responsible for circulating large amounts of air from your HVAC system to your vents. When ductwork is poorly installed or damaged, it can drastically decrease your HVAC system’s efficiency. Depending on the size of your property, this can increase your utility bill by hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

At Baytek Indoor Air Solutions, we provide superior removal and air duct replacement services in San Jose. Our techs are fully licensed and insured and committed to completing your project on time and within your budget.

  • How long do furnaces typically last?
    Residential furnaces typically last 15 to 20 years. With regular maintenance, their life span can be extended even longer.
  • Blower Fan Does Not Turn Off
    Usually, the fan limit switch may be set to “manual override”, but it can also be a shorted wire in the thermostat, or at the fan limit switch.
  • Performance Does Not Improve After Changing Air Filters
    Dirty air filters can reduce the airflow, making your furnace strain to circulate heat. Air filters should be changed every three months. Clogged filters can sometimes damage your limit switch, which operates the fan.
  • Energy Bills Going Up
    Your furnace can make natural gas bill go up if the thermostat is not regulating temperature correctly, or if there are clogged vents or dirty air filters.
  • Burning Smell When Heat is Running
    When the furnace isn’t being used, dust and dirt settle on inner components. When you first use the furnace in colder months, you’ll smell this dust burning off. If you smell it every time, something may be amiss with your furnace.
  • Thermostat Not Working Correctly
    If your furnace does not turn on, or does not regulate temperature, you might have a faulty thermostat.
  • Furnace Not Heating Up
    The most common reasons for a furnace blowing cold air are dirty air filters, a blown pilot light, or a faulty thermostat. There can also be issues with ignition, a gas valve, the blower fan, or other components.
  • Ignition or Pilot Light Malfunctioning
    This can be dues to a faulty thermocouple or blocked gas valve.
  • Furnace is Noisy When it Runs
    A buzzing sound from your furnace may indicate an electrical problem. If you hear a loud noise as it starts up, this may be “delayed ignition”, a serious issue where an excessive amount of natural gas builds up in the combustion chamber before igniting. Call a licensed HVAC company immediately.
  • Carbon Monoxide Detector Going Off / Sulfur Smell
    Carbon monoxide is a byproduct of natural gas furnaces burning fuel. Normally, this is contained withing the heat exchanger, and vented through the flue to the outdoor environment. If you smell sulfur, see excessive condensation on windows, see soot or smoke stains around the furnace, you may have a leak.
  • Frequent Cycling – Heat Turns On and Off
    Short cycling is when the heat turns on and off repeatedly. This can be caused by a damaged fan limiter, a dirty flame sensor or damaged thermocouple. If you notice short cycling, call a local heating and cooling specialist.

    You can edit the title from the Settings tab in the app. If you don’t want to display the title, simply disable the Title under “Info to Display”.

  • Design
    Ductwork is a vital for a comfortable home or office. But since no two buildings are the same, it is unreasonable to think the same duct system will work for different units. Our team takes the time to understand your ductwork needs and create customized designs.

When Is It Time to Replace My Ductwork?

Many HVAC issues should be handled by a professional. Determining if you should replace your ductwork is one of those times. Due to the extensive labor and cost involved, you will not want to have new ductwork installed unless you absolutely need it.

Common signs that it is time to replace your ductwork include:

  • Your home is excessively dusty

  • You have poor indoor air quality

  • Your ductwork leaks air

  • Your registers lack adequate airflow

  • You smell mildew

  • You have a mold growing in your ducts

  • The ductwork in your home is over 15 years old

  • Your property’s temperature is inconsistent

  • Your HVAC unit is noisy

  • Your utility bills are higher than usual

  • Your ductwork is improperly sized

If your ductwork requires repair, we have the tools and skills to make the necessary repairs quickly and effectively. Should your ducts need to be replaced, our technicians can remove and replace them and have your heating and cooling system back up and running in no time.

What's the Cost to Replace Ductwork?

The cost to replace ductwork depends on several factors, including the size of your home or property, the materials used, and the labor required. Usually, replacing ductwork will cost you about $35 to $55 per linear foot of labor and materials. The average household typically costs about $1,000 to $5,000 to replace the ductwork.

If the design is particularly complicated, the cost to replace your ductwork might be higher because of the time and effort required. Additionally, installing brand new ductwork to property that’s never had it before can also cost more. Homeowners should also factor in the cost of permit fees. Experienced HVAC contractors know that ductwork installation in San Jose requires a permit and can obtain the correct ones.
