The air ducts in your home are largely hidden from our view. Usually, the only portion of your ductwork that you can access is the part of the duct that leads to the vents in your home. You generally cannot tell if parts of your ducts are in need of repair. Usually you start to notice higher energy bills, or large temperature variations in the home. Consult an expert to find out if your ducts are in need of repair.
Leaky ducts that are poorly sealed and/or develop holes and cracks
According to the EPA, up to 30% of energy costs can be recovered by keeping the ducts in good working condition. When the ductwork in a home has a number of holes or if there is poor sealing between the fittings, your air conditioner has to try a lot harder to keep temperatures low.
Flexible ducts have become a common fixture in homes due to their ease of installation. Most common problems with Flexible ducts are they can develop kinks or become torn or crushed. Any of these issues keep air from reaching the rooms in your home efficiently.
Dirty air ducts
One of the duct issues homeowners are most concerned with is pollutants. If there are contaminants in your air ducts, such as bacteria, viruses, mold, pet dander, pollen, you are breathing these in every day. This is very problematic for anyone who has issues with allergies or with asthma.
