When Is Duct Repair Necessary?

The furnace and air conditioner in your home perform their vital job of providing you comfort by channeling air through ducts that run through your walls and ceilings. These ducts need to remain in good condition, or they will have a negative effect on your HVAC system’s ability to keep your home warm and cool. It will also reduce the quality of your indoor air. Call professionals with expertise in duct repair to fix breaks, leaks, corrosion, and loose connections as soon as you can.

When is it necessary to schedule duct repair? The simple answer is “the moment you know something is wrong.” Here are some signs that there are issues inside your ducts that require attention.

  • Foul odors from the vents: There are a number of reasons you might detect a noxious smell from the vents. A dead animal is one possibility, but it could also indicate that breaks along the ducts have allowed the heater to draw air from musty sections of your house. Corrosion can also create bad smells, and corrosion usually means serious damage somewhere along the vents.
  • An increase in dust throughout your home: Ducts that have developed breaks will rapidly gather a thick layer of dust inside them. Fans will then blow this dust into your house. If you notice that no matter how much cleaning you do, the dust comes right back, then your ductwork may be at fault.
  • A decrease in airflow from the vents: Ductwork is supposed to remain a sealed system from the heater all the way to the vent. Any disruption to this seal from a break will cause the air pressure to drop, reducing the flow coming from the vents into your living spaces. If you notice that air no longer blows from the vents as well as it used to, call for professional assistance.

Ductwork repair and cleaning requires more than duct tape and a broom. Only duct repair experts can safely access your ductwork and provide the sealing that will hold out for many years.
