Your heating and air conditioning works through your home by way of your ducts. As you can imagine, ducts play a huge role in determining the quality and efficiency of your heating and air conditioning. Unfortunately, over time your ducts deteriorate and begin to work against you. Here are some of the signs your ducts need to be replaced, so you can get the most out of your heating and air conditioning.
If some rooms get the air conditioning, while other rooms don't, then it's probably because of your ductwork. The resolution to this is duct replacement, because new duct work will be designed so that every room in the house gets heating and air conditioning, not just a few of them. Once you have your duct work reorganized, you'll see a big difference in the comfort of your home.
If you can see that your ducts are deteriorating, you'll want to consider repair or replacement. You’ll want to check your ducts every once in a while for cracking, separating, and sagging. If your ducts are in bad shape, then the conditioned air will leak into some rooms and stay out of others.
If you’re constantly sniffling or coughing, then poor indoor air quality may be to blame. While it’s not the first thing you think of, your ducts may be the source of your woes! Dirty air ducts will circulate dusty, low quality air. Have your ducts cleaned once a year to breathe easy. If, however, your ducts are cracked, then they’ll easily and constantly refill with dust and debris; you may want to have them replaced.
