The ductwork that is in your home is a complex system of supply ducts that deliver the conditioned air to different rooms, as well as return ducts that transport fresh air to your HVAC system. The ducts that leak could be able to lose so much air that the efficiency of your air conditioner could be reduced by as high as 40 percent. Older ducts are the most at risk, particularly those in the attic or basement.

Common Issues with Air Ducts
The most frequently-repeated problems we face when dealing with duct systems comprise:
Leaky Ducts It’s not unusual to see small cracks develop in the air ducts. These cracks can cause air leaks and draw in stagnant air from the crawlspace or attic which then circulates into the living area. Repairs can be simple and eliminate an unpleasant smell or air quality problems.
Poorly or uninsulated Ducts In the absence of or poor duct insulation, air loses heat rapidly as it moves through attic duct lines that are cold. Uninsulated ductwork is also able to quickly warm the air before it gets to your living space.
Unbalanced Ductwork Incorrectly installed poorly placed, poorly shaped ducts can impact the distribution of air. This can result in low temperature regulation, where certain rooms are too hot, while other rooms are too cold.
Safety Air duct leakage can result in an imbalance in pressure that could force air from gas stoves, furnaces, wood stoves, and other combustion equipment back into your residence. This can lead to exposure to carbon monoxide and low the indoor quality of air.
When is the right time to install new air Ducts?
Regarding HVAC efficiency Sealing and repairing air ducts will improve their efficiency. If your ductwork is older than 15 years old, replacing the ductwork will help avoid problems like insect infestations or ducts that have collapsed. If you are paying expensive energy bills but are unable to determine the cause, leaks within your ductwork might be making your energy go down. tiny holes or gaps which allow air to escape could also allow in pollen, dust, and other contaminants. These could cause asthma, allergies or other health issues. If you observe any of these symptoms then it could be the right time to replace the air ducts.

The benefits of Air Duct Repair
As the air ducts get older, they’re more likely to need repairs. Air quality issues in air ducts may result from obstructions or accumulation of debris.
In addition to cleaning air ducts on a regular basis and regularly, it is essential to inspect them to check for leaks. Ducts that leak let heated or cool air escape into unoccupied spaces, as well as having many entrance points for dirt and dust. This can result in greater frequency and speedier obstructions.
Another problem with damaged ducts is poor airflow. A lack of airflow in your HVAC unit can cause the unit to perform more than normal, leading to the need for HVAC repair and even replacement.
