Sometimes a problem with the indoor air quality or the level of comfort in a home can actually be due to a problem with the ductwork rather than with the heating and cooling system. HVAC systems work by pushing heated or cooled air through ductwork, and into your home. When you have leaks in your ducts, you can lose a significant percentage of this air before it reaches the rooms in your home.
It's difficult to know when your ducts are leaking air, and not every homeowner wants to crawl around in their crawlspace or attic looking for damaged ductwork. If you live in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area, contact the team at Comfort Services to inspect your ductwork and perform any necessary repairs.
Why Your Ductwork Could be Leaking
You may wonder how these leaks occur in your ductwork. In some cases, they've existed since your home was built or since the ductwork was installed, and other damages could be caused by aging. Here are some reasons you may have leaks in your ducts:
- Your ducts were poorly installed
- Dirt and debris is clogging your ductwork
- There are holes and tears in your ductwork
- The connections are loose
- Moisture has caused corrosion
Sealing your ducts can help:
- Improve air quality
- Reduce energy costs
- Enhance the efficiency of your HVAC system
- Prevent drafty rooms or areas
- Increase the comfort of your home
