Your ducts are a hugely important part of your HVAC system.
Unfortunately, the ducts in your home could be damaged without your knowledge. Changes in the soil around the house due to moisture, ice and other geographic forces could be causing the foundation of the house to alter, leading to issues with your ducts.
Not only could your ducts be damaged, but you could also be paying a fortune for heating and cooling bills because of it.
The air in your home could also be compromised because of dirty ducts, and pest problems could be present. Here are a few things to consider when calling the HVAC company.
It’s important to contact a professional HVAC company to examine your ducts and find any issues or repair needs.
If the ducts can’t be shifted back into place or moved, they will have to be replaced.
It’s important that the ducts align properly throughout the house if you want air to flow properly and keep consistent temperatures. If thermostat is getting an inaccurate reading because air isn’t traveling to that location of the home, it may force your air conditioner or heat source to work harder than necessary. This is why duct inspections and duct repair are so important.
Once the ducts are repaired you want to have them cleaned. The cleaning will remove lint, dust, hair, dander, and other pollutants and debris that can land in the ducts over time.
If the ducts have been damaged, there could be other things lingering throughout the ventilation system. The cleaning will boost airflow to help with efficiency, it improves air quality throughout your home, and it allows the heating and cooling professional to really examine the ducts.
The Department of Energy reports that 20-30 percent of the heat or cold air from the furnace or air conditioner is lost through damaged or unsealed ducts.
Have heating and cooling professionals seal all the duct connections so air loss isn’t a problem in the home, and so you can conserve your energy costs throughout the year.
If you’ve never had your ducts inspected and you don’t know if they are in good condition, it’s time to talk with the experts at Synergy Service to see what’s going on.
