Updating duct work
A professional will ensure the ducts are installed, sealed, and connected properly to promote energy efficiency.

If you’re thinking about installing the ductwork as a DIY project, keep in mind it is a large and involved project.Installing ductwork is a big project unless you’re working with new construction where the ductwork will be installed prior to the ceiling.One of the first things a professional installer will do is create a plan that will accommodate the addition of ducts and vents for the entire home including the costs of materials and labor.For installation in areas that are easily accessible such as a new room addition, a basement or even a crawl space, it will be a littler easier because you’ll have increased access to the area where the ductwork is being installed.Whether it’s new ductwork or replacement ductwork, the material is installed in a network system meaning ducts will need to run throughout the ceiling and a vent will need to be installed in each room for complete heating and cooling circulation.Prices vary from state to state, but typically a professional installer may charge at least to per hour for labor and materials.
