This service is crucial in maintaining an energy-efficient HVAC system while preventing costly repairs or replacements in the future.
Signs You Need Duct Repair
Air ducts are an important component of your HVAC system, responsible for delivering clean and conditioned air to your living space. Unfortunately, most duct systems we inspect have fundamental issues that prevent your HVAC system from operating as it was designed. Poor airflow causes unnecessary equipment breakdowns and shortens the life of the system. Improperly designed and/or installed ducts will also cause indoor air quality problems.
It is important to keep an eye out for these signs that indicate your ducts are in need of repair to ensure optimal performance and clean air.
- Poor Indoor Air Quality: One of the most obvious signs that your ducts need repairing is the presence of poor air quality. If you notice that the air quality in your home is constantly dustier, stuffier, or even smellier than usual, then it may be time to have your air ducts inspected for needed repairs.
- High Energy Bills: Another sign that may indicate the need for air duct repair is high energy bills. If your energy bills are far higher than usual, and there are no other explanations, then it may be that your air ducts are inefficient, leading to wasted energy.
- Noise: If your HVAC system seems noisier than usual, it may be due to faulty ductwork. Rattling or thumping noises coming from your HVAC system are common in poorly maintained ducts, and signify that attention is needed.
- Uneven Room Temperature: Uneven room temperature is another sign of faulty air ducts. If some rooms in your home feel warmer or cooler than usual, despite settings remaining steady, then it may be due to leaking or broken air ducts.
Ductwork Issues That Need Repair
Ductwork is essential to ensure proper airflow and temperature control inside your home. Unfortunately, system malfunctions and flaws can occur due to an array of common ductwork problems.
It is important to be aware of these problems to be able to address them promptly and avoid further damage to your home’s climate control system. Here are some of the problems that you may experience with your duct system:
Torn or damaged ducts can result in a significant loss of air pressure and therefore lower efficiency. Additionally, torn or damaged ducts can allow pollutants and outside air to enter into the system, resulting in poor indoor air quality. This can also lead to health issues for those inside the home, especially those with asthma or allergies.
Air leaks are one of the most common problems that can occur in your ductwork. Tiny cracks or gaps allow conditioned air to leak out through the ductwork. As a result, your HVAC system has to work harder, to make up for the lost air, thereby increasing your energy bills. Duct leaks can also cause a pressure imbalance indoors that may push conditioned air outdoors or pull unconditioned air indoors. To fix this problem, you’ll need to have a professional evaluate the duct system and seal the leaks.
Poor ductwork design can lead to uneven heating and cooling in your home. The duct system may not be designed to work properly with your current HVAC system or meet the heating and cooling demands of your household. A professional will survey the duct system and make the necessary repairs to improve comfort and energy efficiency.
Lack of Insulation
Another common problem with ductwork is lack of insulation. Insulation is vital because it helps control the temperature of the air that flows through the ductwork. Adding insulation to your ductwork can greatly improve the energy efficiency of your HVAC system and keep you more comfortable inside the home. A lack of duct insulation or improperly installed duct insulation can also cause condensation on ductwork as well.
Obstruction is another common problem. This can occur due to debris, dust, or other foreign materials that accumulate inside the ductwork. Blocked ductwork can restrict the airflow and damage your HVAC system, as well as prevent heating and cooling from reaching rooms in your home.
