Your ductwork is like the delivery system for your air conditioning unit. Without your ducts, the cool air that your AC creates won’t end up going anywhere, or, it will end up outside of your home rather than inside your home where it belongs. That is why duct leaks or breaks are a problem and, thankfully, they are problems that we can help with.
The technicians at Mack Morris Heating & Air Conditioning can help figure out what might be going on with your ductwork and provide services to address the issues that are going to hinder your comfort the most.

That isn’t normal, you think to yourself, and you are correct!
