What Role Do Your Air Ducts Play?
Ductwork can best be described as the circulatory system for your home and HVAC system. It removes warm or cool indoor air, conditions it, and then returns it to your home to keep you and your family comfortable. Through the years, however, your air ducts endure their fair amount of natural wear and tear—even from just standard HVAC use.
Due to the constant temperature fluctuation in your ductwork, cracks and breaches may occur. Damage may also happen if there were rodents in your attic or crawlspace, or even if your ductwork was not adequately installed in the first place. But it can be hard for the average Las Vegas homeowner to assess whether they actually need duct repair or replacement.
Do You Need Duct Repair?
- Holes: Although you cannot easily conduct a visual inspection of your ductwork, you should listen closely while your HVAC system is running. Do you hear a whistling noise or unsettling loudness coming from the air ducts? This could be the sign of a hole or multiple holes leaking your conditioned air. Holes may also enable fumes or contaminants to enter your clean air.
- Loose Connections: The connections throughout your ductwork are prone to occasional damage. Additionally, if the air ducts weren’t correctly installed to begin with, you might have fittings that have been loosening over the years. This can lead to serious operational problems for your HVAC system.
When Is It Time to Replace Your Ductwork?
Deciding whether you can get by with a simple repair or your ductwork needs a partial or full replacement can be a difficult choice. The decision truly relies on what your needs are in addition to your budget—although if a replacement is suggested then both your budget and peace of mind will be in better condition in the long run.
