Does Your Ductwork Need Repair?
Although your air ducts are not easily accessible or visible to the average occupant, there are a number of signs you can watch and listen for that will indicate your ductwork may be damaged:
- Unnaturally High Energy Bills: If your ductwork has gaps or holes in it, or is starting to fall apart, it will lose a significant amount of the air moving through it—sometimes up to 30% or more! This translates into wasted energy—and therefore wasted money—as conditioned air never reaches the rooms it’s intended for. If you see your heating and cooling bills increase with no other reasonable explanation, then damaged, poorly sealed or disconnected ductwork may be to blame.
- Rattling Sounds: This could very well be a sign of loose ducts. Ductwork does flex due to heat changes, but if the rattling sound has grown louder or persists the entire time your HVAC system is running, ductwork repair may be necessary.
- Low Air Flow: There are a number of possible reasons your air flow may be restricted. One potential issue is that you’re losing air from damaged ductwork, as this causes the air pressure inside to plunge. The result of this is sluggish air flow, so if you notice uneven cooling or heating in your home, check your vents!
