The ductwork in your home is vital to the comfort and wellbeing of your family. It keeps warm and cool air moving throughout the year, both in winter and summer, and when cleaned regularly, it provides fresh air cycled from your ventilators. However, at a certain point, you may notice problems with your ductwork that go beyond simple maintenance. If that’s the case, replacement may be the best option.
Old or worn ductwork can be problematic in many ways. Gaps between ducts result in loss of temperature controlled air, which raises your bills as your system works harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. Excess build up that cannot be cleaned properly will reduce your air quality and can cause illness in your home. When any of these problems occur, you need a professional to diagnose your ductwork and help you determine if replacement is necessary.
When that happens, call the Sarasota area duct replacement experts at Ultimate Air Conditioning. We regularly provide expert replacement services to homeowners who want to improve how their ductwork functions. Call us today to learn more about how we can do the same for you.
How do you know when your duct work needs to be replaced? Most families won’t at first, but if you’re paying attention, you can catch issues much earlier and cut down on the total cost of the process. It also allows you time to have someone check your home heating and cooling system and make sure nothing is wrong with the furnace or air conditioner. Many times, symptoms in the ductwork and your comfort system will overlap; proper inspection will determine which you should be concerned about.
The most common ductwork problem is uneven home heating and cooling. Because ductwork carries the heated or cooled air to every corner of your home, a lack of comfort in one room or floor is usually a sign that the ductwork is having a problem in that part of the house. For example, if your second floor is much warmer than your bottom floor in the summer, the ducts may not be getting enough cooled air upstairs.
If you notice that your home comfort system isn’t working as it once did, with generally lower efficiency and higher energy bills, it may be a ductwork problem. A gap between ducts can leak conditioned air out of the system while loss of efficiency in general can be a result of issues with either your ductwork or your comfort system or both.
When air quality becomes a consistent issue, your ductwork should be inspected immediately. Many times, this is a sign that you need cleaning.
