Signs You May Require Ductwork Replacement
The quality and integrity of your ductwork helps determine the efficiency of your HVAC system, comfort, and indoor air quality, and while there are only a handful of things that can go wrong with your ducts there are a number of signs to warn you of an impending replacement, including:
- Increasing energy bills. A sudden or gradual increase in energy not in line with the natural rise in fuel costs, or extreme outdoor temperatures is a sign of system inefficiency. When you consider that a typical home loses between 20 and 30 percent of conditioned air through leaky ducts, ductwork replacement using proper sealing methods and materials can help significantly reduce fuel costs.
- Unusual odors. Musty or stale odors coming from your ducts can be a sign of mold growth while lingering odors throughout your home signal a lack of airflow.
- Reduced indoor air quality. Leaky ducts allow contaminated air to enter from areas such as the attic or crawlspace and circulate through your living space.
- Inconsistent temperatures. Disconnected, poorly designed, or leaky ducts can prevent conditioned air from reaching certain rooms in your home.
- New construction. Renovations and additions will benefit from professional duct design and installation or replacement.
- Upgrades to your HVAC system. Aging ductwork may not handle the demands placed upon it by a new high-efficiency HVAC system.
- Shoddy installation. Inadequate installation or design can lead to discomfort and unnecessarily high energy bills.
- Poor airflow. Weak airflow is a sign that conditioned air isn’t able to reach your living space through your current duct system.
- Zoned heating and cooling. Independently controlled zones can help control energy costs, but may require an upgrade to your ductwork.
