Duct FAQ: Do My Ducts Need Repairs?

Air ducts are vital to the efficiency and comfort of a home. It’s almost impossible to have proper air conditioning or heating without having air ducts that are in good condition, or unless homeowners have a ductless system. While we definitely can help homes accommodate to ductless HVAC systems, sometimes a ducted system is going to be more affordable and more effective.

So, let’s start from the beginning. We need to pinpoint exactly what can go wrong with the ductwork in a home. Then, we can start to talk about the unique HVAC services in Hawthorne, NY designed to target those problems and fix them. From duct repairs to replacement, nothing is off-limits when there’s a team of professionals like ours ready to help.

It’s time to talk about air ducts, the problems they experience, and how anyone can tell if their ducts are in need of serious repair or replacement.

Ducts Can Have Serious Problems

We like to focus on the big aspects of an HVAC system here. It generates more clicks and “wows” from customers when we talk about heaters, air conditioners, or indoor air quality machines. While they’re absolutely important to the quality of a home’s comfort, they’re not everything. Sometimes air ducts get left in the dust when they’re the culprit of some pretty serious problems. So, let’s get into some of those problems.

Leaky Ducts

Air ducts can leak a tremendous amount of air if homeowners aren’t paying attention or providing the proper services for them. While this might not seem like that big of a problem, it can be. For instance, air ducts can waste up to 30% of the conditioned air that comes directly from an HVAC system. This can result in two things:

  1. The air inside a home with leaky ducts will be considerably more uncomfortable since the treated air can’t get to its destination.
  2. Energy and fuel bills will be up to 30% more expensive because the HVAC system is working harder to provide air that’s leaking into places it won’t be felt.

Air ducts that are leaking can be repaired, it’s just up to homeowners to call their prospective HVAC provider for proper duct services.

Ducts That Don’t Work

Ducts can sometimes stop working due to cracks, leaks, breaks, holes, gaps, and other problems that develop for a multitude of reasons. For instance, accidentally banging against a certain area of a home can result in ducts getting bent or cracked, which will in-turn hurt the comfort and efficiency of a home. That’s why our team provides duct repairs so that we can be in and out of a home to address the needs.

Broken Ducts That Need Replacement

What happens when a whole duct system is basically irreparably damaged or broken down to the point where no targeted repairs will fix it? It needs to be replaced. Homeowners might try to cut corners or find a new way to heat or cool their home, but this might not be a cost-effective way to deal with the problem. We promise that our duct replacement services are affordable, effective, and fast.
