While your furnace and air conditioner are critical parts of any complete home comfort system, there are other parts that play important roles as well. Your ductwork in particular is necessary to take the heated or cooled air from your comfort system and move it throughout your house. But, if that ductwork gets clogged, starts to leak, or simply isn’t installed properly in the first place, you may find yourself in need of duct repair.

If your heating and cooling system isn’t keeping your home comfortable, you will obviously start thinking about replacement. However, you should examine your duct system before you make a final decision to make sure it isn’t the cause of the problem. Broken or leaky air ducts can prevent your HVAC system from working effectively, so call us today if you are having problems with heating or cooling.
Duct Problems to Watch For
Before calling a professional for your home heating and cooling repair needs, you must first recognize that there’s a problem. Is it a problem in your ductwork or is it something more serious in your furnace or air conditioner? Luckily, there are some simple things you can look for before making that phone call.
The most common sign of a problem in your ductwork is sudden uneven heating or cooling in different rooms of your home. If your living room is still nice and warm in the afternoon but the upstairs bedrooms are freezing despite the setting on your thermostat, the ductwork may not be transferring the heated air upstairs efficiently. It could be a leak in the ducts or something more complicated in your furnace, but in either case you should contact a professional to have it inspected.
Another sign that your ductwork is no longer working properly is a marked increase in your heating or cooling bills. Especially if you have a newer home comfort system, you will rarely notice a loss in heating capacity. These systems are powerful and can keep you comfortable regardless of what the weather is like outside. However, the cost of doing so starts to rise dramatically if there is a leaky or broken duct. Just because your furnace or air conditioner can compensate doesn’t mean you want to pay the extra money on your next energy bill.
Air Quality Problems
Most ductwork problems are related to the comfort level in your home, but in extreme cases, bad or damaged ductwork can pose a health risk. Exhaust ducts that carry fumes or gas should be inspected regularly and immediately checked if a leak is suspected. Additionally, ducts that aren’t regularly cleaned can become clogged and filled with debris and other harmful pathogens that can make you sick if they’re left unchecked.
Regular cleaning takes care of many of these problems, but if you notice that your air quality system is working harder than normal or needs excessive filter changes, it may be a sign that your ductwork is in need of repairs.
