The efficiency of your air conditioning and heating system is dependent on the quality of your ductwork. Over time, the integrity of your duct system can fail, causing leaks and condensation. Whether from age, accidental movement, or pest activity, these breaches are a waste of energy.
If you've noticed a reduction of air flow, stains on the ceiling, or musty smell from air vents, you should have your central air conditioning systems’ ductwork checked.
Over time, the connections between the sections and segments of your duct system can fail. Whether from age, accidental movement, or pest activity, these breaches are a waste of energy. If your duct work has gaps or openings that let conditioned air escape, you may experience some rooms that are less comfortable than others.
Another common duct work problem is restricted air-flow. If your ducts are collapsed or crushed, air flow is being restricted and prevented from getting the space you want heated or cooled.
All of these problems cause your heating or cooling system to work harder than it was designed, causing unnecessary power use and potential premature equipment failure.
