Custom Ductwork Repair

Your system’s ductwork is an important part of your home comfort system. Ductwork that is aging, damaged or was not installed correctly can cost you money and affect your home’s air quality. Mold, moisture, rat droppings, dust and other particles can penetrate into your air circulation system.

Aarvaks’ professionals will inspect your home’s ductwork to identify any problems and recommend solutions to ensure your home air quality remains efficient and clean. Our experts can repair or replace your ductwork with precision, so your system operates at peak performance.

Carrier Wi-Fi thermostat


There are many types of thermostats on the market today from non-programmable to programmable to smart thermostats. Making the right choice can be difficult.

Our experts will explain the pros and cons for each thermostat type and provide advice on which one would work best with your system. Once we have professionally installed your chosen thermostat, we’ll make sure you understand how to use it properly so it can save you money through efficient energy usage.

Tips & Tricks to Save You Money

  • ✓ Use a ceiling fan to circulate warm air from the ceiling to the floor in the winter.
  • ✓ Be sure the damper to your fireplace is closed when the fireplace is not in use.
  • ✓ Install an ENERGY STAR thermostat to optimize your system settings. According to energystar.com, homeowners can save about $180 a year by changing thermostats to a new, digital, programmable thermostat and maintaining those settings.
  • ✓ Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month or, at minimum, quarterly.
  • ✓ Have us perform preventive maintenance on your furnace during the off season to keep your system in good condition before you begin using it again. We offer seasonal discounted service rates. If you are on our Preventive Maintenance Plan, we’ll make sure this check up service is included automatically.
  • ✓ Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they’re not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.
  • ✓ Bleed trapped air from hot-water radiators once or twice a season.
  • ✓ During the heating season, keep the draperies and shades on your south-facing windows open during the day to allow the sunlight to enter your home and closed at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.
  • ✓ Assess your home’s energy use by using the ENERGY STAR Home Energy Yardstick tool and take a room-by-room tour to see how else you can save energy.

“I love my new wall furnace! It heats the whole house efficiently, and is “so” much quieter than the old one. It didn’t wake me up once last night. Glenn and Chris were great. They worked hard, cleaned up after themselves, and were informative to talk with. I had no problem at all leaving them alone in my house. Your company is a joy to work with. Thank you for everything!”
