Southern Comfort specializes in air duct repair and air duct replacement of all types including flex, fiberglass, and metal air ducts.
Ductwork is a crucial part of your HVAC system, but its design and installation matter. The best way to make sure your cool air gets distributed evenly around your home is by investing in custom ductwork. Southern Comfort Air Conditioning and Builders is the only company excelling in custom ductwork design and installation in the South Florida area.
Custom ductwork technology is specifically designed to match up with the technology of your HVAC system. This allows you to have the most efficient HVAC system possible for your home.
Good ductwork design can help save money through increased efficiency, balanced air distribution, and proper airflow rates. Efficient ductwork design is created to distribute air correctly through the home.
If you think you may not be getting the most out of your HVAC system and ducts, it’s time to let a professional give it a look. Contact Southern Comfort Air Conditioning and Builders today to have your ductwork inspected by a reliable contractor.
Air ducts get damaged from a number of factors such as age, poor design, rodent damage and sub-contractor that need to access your roof.
Damaged ductwork or air duct leaks affect the indoor environment in two main ways:
1. Cold air is lost before it effectively cools the indoor space. This makes your HVAC system work harder, using more energy and driving your utility bills up.
2. Leaks in the ductwork introduce contaminants to the circulating air. This includes mold, dust, mites, pollen, bacteria, asbestos and other allergens.
Southern Comfort repairs air ducts as well as replaces air ducts to keep your HVAC system efficient, comfortable and clean in the event of an air duct leak.
Additionally, we can upsize air ducts to get more air to the desired room in your home or building.
If your ductwork is old or damaged, it can affect your home’s comfort and your energy bills. Lack of proper sealing can cause your air to leak.

A linear diffuser serves as an effective alternative to traditional supply and exhaust vents, and may also improve the appearance of the room in some applications.
The average linear diffuser consists of a long, narrow metal casing with a series of louvers or grills along once face. Installers fasten the linear diffuser into a ceiling, wall, or window sill area so that the louvered face sits flush with the surrounding surface. Linear diffusers work with both drywall structures and drop ceilings, but different types of models may be required to fit different applications. The most common linear diffuser designs include rows of diffusers along an entire wall, with vents placed either in the ceiling or window sills.
Traditional supply vents feature a very large, rounded design. The entire air contents of each supply duct were forced out of a single vent, creating drafts and noisy conditions. In a room with linear diffusers, the supply air is distributed through a series of narrow channels so it enters the room in several different areas at once. This creates a much more even distribution of air, as well as improved comfort and quieter ventilation.
Engineers and installers must select each linear diffuser carefully to maximize air flow and ensure a comfortable, healthy building. The fins or slots on each unit may face different directions, which determines which way the air can flow from each vent. The angle and size of each of these slots must match the size of the HVAC system, as well as the required airflow for the building. The size and configuration of each vent also effects noise levels and the speed at which the air can travel.
Different linear diffuser design options allow building owners to create the desired finish within a space. Each features a unique flange design to trim out the edges of the diffuser and provide a neat transition between the diffuser and the wall or ceiling. These devices also come in different materials and finishes, some of which can be painted to match surrounding surfaces. Models made from stainless steel or thermoplastics often feature a manufacturer-applied finish that cannot be painted.
Exhaust fans pull odors, fumes, and moisture from an area of the home, venting them outdoors for removal. The fan uses a motor to turn its blades, which function to pull air out of the space. The stale, humid, or contaminated air is propelled through the exhaust vent, exiting the home.
Duct cleaning includes removal of all vents, duct cleaning with a Rotorbrush, reinstalling all vents, sanitizing is an additional cost.
Sanitizing is designed to specifically kill bacteria that might be lingering in your duct system. Sanitation involves applying an antimicrobial chemical to kill bacteria and/or airborne contaminants and to minimize the chance of re-contamination.
