Or your heating system? Did you know that if you are not able to keep your home at a comfortable temperature then there is an issue with your ductwork? Many will truly believe the replacement of the units themselves is good enough but how will we know if its time to replace your HVAC ducts?
Well first let us start with the Benefits of New Air Ducts. A well-designed air duct system will boost your HVAC equipment’s efficiency and keep your home at a comfortable even temperature throughout the home.
It’s time to replace your HVAC Ducts
If your House is Constantly Dusty
If you feel like you can never keep your home clean enough and, there is always an excessive amount of dust lingering around your home, this is the sign of a leak in your ductwork. Leaks allow hot and cool air escape and allow the dust and dirt get in the ductwork.
Your Central Air System is Noisy
If you hear noise coming from a heating and cooling system it could mean the ductwork is not properly sized for your equipment.
Inconsistent Room Temperature
If there are some rooms in your home that are too hot or too cold and it’s not just right it may be because of a new arising problem with the ducts. The sooner you catch it the better.
Mold In Your Ducts
After a while, moisture in your home can lead to the growth of mold in your ductwork. If you smell a strange odor coming from your air vents, have your HVAC company check for mold right away to avoid damage to your family’s health.
Age of your home
If your home is more than 10 years old; age may be a determining factor in replacing your ducts. Why? Well, most of the ductwork used for residential construction sites can at times be chosen for the cheapest way out! Getting your home not only inspected but all of your HVAC Equipment inspected will benefit you in the long run.
