Do you have Leaky Ducts?

Leaky ductwork is something you can’t always see but you can feel. Let’s learn how leaky duct work can impact you and your home.

1.   Reduced Comfort-

Have you ever felt your HVAC system cannot properly heat or cool rooms or it does so after different rates depending on the room? If your home cannot be heat or cooled evenly that is a telltale sign of leaky ducts. Hot and cold spots throughout the home is one of the most common complaints we hear from homeowners. When a large enough hole is in your ducts, room found furtherer down that line of your ductwork won’t receive the proper amount of air to be distributed. This will cause those rooms to be either hotter or colder depending on if you are running your heat or air conditioner. Without a balance of airflow, hold and cold spots will always have a presence in your home. Additionally, leaky ducts can cause humidity issues in your home. Air is dehumidified as it passes over your AC evaporator coils. Leaky ducts will allow unconditioned air to leak into them and circulate throughout your home. You feel your home to be muggy and/or stuffy in the summer and too dry in the winter.

2. Increasing Energy Bills

When you run your HVAC unit, you pay to heat or cool all of your home including for the air that is leaking out. Any air that leaks into the crack in your walls, basement, or attic is money wasted. The air is leaking out and never reaches the rooms where it is needed. One way to tell is to monitor your energy bill during the heating and cooling seasons. If you have a spike in your bill during these times compared to the off-seasons, you likely are losing money on wasted HVAC efficiency. Advanced Air Duct Cleaning is able to perform a duct leakage test so you know exactly how much air you are losing and wasting.

3. Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your HVAC system doesn’t properly filter dust mites, mold spores, and other contaminants out of the air, your household can experience more frequent allergy problems and respiratory illnesses.

Leaky ducts reduce indoor air quality by allowing unfiltered air to circulate through your home. Instead of passing through the HVAC air filter, air can enter through holes in your ducts, carrying containments from the unfiltered air in your home’s walls and pulling outdoor air in through gaps in your insulation.
