Ductwork is a branching network of tubes in the walls, floors and ceilings. It takes air from throughout the house and delivers it to the heater/air conditioner, where the air is heated or cooled, then delivers the heated or cooled air back into the living space. Both intake and output of air is important to a balanced, climate-controlled system. To operate efficiently, ducts must be sized to match the heater and air conditioner, and designed so the correct amount of air reaches each room.
❄ COST ❄
Replacing aging, leaking or inadequate ductwork typically costs about $35-$55 a linear foot for labor and materials, or $1,000-$5,000 or more for a single-family home, depending on the length and type of ducts used (sheet metal, fiber duct or round flexible ductwork) and local rates. (The linear footage of ductwork varies widely depending on the type of heating and cooling system, when and how it was installed and the layout and construction of the house.)
Factors affecting the cost include whether the home is one- or two-story; the total number of intake and output vents needed to create comfortable temperatures in the house; the number of separate temperature-control zones; the extent of repairs needed to floors, walls and ceilings after the ducts are installed, and accessibility — whether new ducts can be easily run through an attic or crawlspace, or if there are places where there is no room for new ductwork and the old ducts snake in and around trusses.

What a great guy/service, came out, had to redo/repair the mess I made putting in a new thermostat, replaced the parts that blew, generally checked the whole unit, and it cost much less than I had anticipated – I will always call Galvez A/C for any future A/C needs

IF YOU EVER HAVE A/C ISSUES – THIS COMPANY (CEO JOSE GALVEZ) SAVED US – LITERALLY! I have lived in Arizona my entire life and I am 37. I have had several different homes from the West Valley to the East Valley and graduated from ASU in 2009. I have NEVER seen a Company care more about their customers than this Company. Our air conditioning went out 3 weeks ago and I am a full time attorney with two children who are in the midst of home schooling now with the pandemic as Gilbert is providing online courses for my children. I had been going outside to flip the breaker on and off as well as turning off my unit just to get by until the a/c repair company came out. I had FOUR companies come out to fix my unit and most told me that it would be 3 to 4 weeks more because of COVID-19 and other issues. My compressor, in the meantime, completely quit and my house inside raised to 95 degrees in temperature. I lost 3 animals and have heart issues. I was worried about my family and worried about how I would be able to provide for them if something happened as heat worsens my condition. My kind neighbors ended up giving me a place to stay while we waited for everything to get fixed. The 4th company to come out told me they would treat me right and promised not to price gouge. They ended up telling me it would be $11,200 to replace my a/c. They didn’t even climb into my attic to really find the problem. To make matters worse, I found out that they were only paying $3,500 for the unit they were charging me $11,200 to fix. I was at a loss and called a close friend asking for help. I have been struggling to make ends meet as several of my corporate clients have gone under with so much going on in the world and now I was trying to work from my neighbor’s home. I was worried about this personal emergency causing me to be unable to work for the clients that I have left. My fried recommended Jose to me and I was leary because all of the prior 4 companies had been so dishonest and seemed to not care about my predicament. Jose came out immediately and told me it would cost half the price of what every other company quoted me. He was honest, fair, and showed me why my A/C had broken down. He climbed into the attic and took time to actually find out what had happened. My A/C had broken twice last summer and this was the second time this summer. We moved into this home last year and I was starting to believe we would never find someone to fix the real problem. Arizona heat is brutal and a broken A/C disrupts Arizonan’s entire lives, especially with children in the home and pets. It is a health emergency. Jose treated it that way and told me everything was going to be okay. I had broken down crying because it was all so much and he was so professional despite how embarrassed I was to be a corporate attorney who couldn’t even handle everything at the point he came out because so much had been disrupted in our lives without having shelter we could live in any longer. Jose ordered the new unit the same day he came to my home to find out what was going on. He came with his employees next morning at 5:30 am to install and cleaned everything before he left. He saved me and my family in a way I could never repay. I will NEVER use another A/C company and will be referring EVERYONE to him. We are back in our home and finally back to being able to live our lives and work. Jose, you have saved an attorney and her family. Thank you for being honest, kind, professional, and so hard working. Thank you for giving us our home back.

I needed someone to come out and fix my failing AC because of a previous installers poor workmanship. I saw Galvez had great reviews in my area. I ended up calling late in the day, but he was still able to come out. Mr. Galvez and his assistant showed up promptly, looking neat and professional. They redid my previous installers work quickly and accurately. Mr. Galvez was super nice, and super knowledgeable. He completed the work correctly at a fraction of what the previous installer wanted to fix their own mistake. I will definitely be using Galvez again for my future checkups and maintenance.

Galvez AC recently installed a new Ac and furnace for me. He beat out 2 other estimates, one by 4000 dollars and the other one by over $ 1000. They arrived on time and went right to work, no breaks and done in under 6 hours. Honest and very knowledgable and friendly. I cannot recommend them enough. We are highly satisfied.

Called and Jose was at my house within a few hours. Doesn’t charge a trip fee , you only pay for his time and parts which aren’t doubled in price. Couldn’t be happier. Nice to find a air and heat Company that’s trust worthy and so reasonably priced. He also has no problem working week ends without charging extra. Very satisfied. 😀
