The cost of ductwork replacement will depend on a few things but knowing your local average can help you determine if the ductwork company is affordable or pricey.

DIY Ductwork Installation
Ductwork installation can be done as a DIY project should you feel you are capable of handling it. However, you will want to have some experience doing this kind of HVAC installation project, if it’s done incorrectly it can end up costing quite a bit more than the price it would have been to have a professional come in and replace the ductwork efficiently and correctly.

Ductwork Replacement & Sizing
To get a good understanding of what kind of costs you might expect when hiring a ductwork replacement company, you will need to get an idea for sizing your ductwork by the square footage of your home. Ductwork sizing is done by a calculated formula that can get complicated pretty fast and is often best estimated by an HVAC professional.
HVAC systems work a lot more efficiently when the ductwork you use is the right size for your home. Install duct sizes that are too small, and your system will have to work harder to keep your home heated and cooled. If your duct sizing is too big, the velocity will be compromised, meaning you may not be able to feel it through the air vents.
What you’ll need to know to calculate ductwork sizing for your home:
- Square footage of your home.
- Square footage of each individual room in your home.
- Cubic feet per minute calculations (explained below.)
- Duct’s Sizing Friction Loss Rate
Sizing duct work on your own can be a tedious and complicated task. Sometimes it’s best to leave it to a ductwork replacement company to get the most accurate sized duct work that works perfectly with your central AC unit and furnace to regulate home temperatures efficiently.
