When was the last time you had your ductwork checked? With a central heating and cooling system, your ducts are critical to the comfort of your home. Regular duct testing can make the difference not only in temperature consistency but also in clean indoor air. Take a look at some reasons it’s time to stop putting off duct testing.
Your ducts are the backbone of the ventilation system for your heating and cooling equipment. If there are issues in the ducts, you’re going to have issues with ventilation and, as a result, issues with your heating and cooling.
Ductwork issues can lead to air leaks causing an imbalance in your HVAC’s performance. When air leaks it can lead to excess energy use by the system which will show up in higher energy bills.
The ducts in your home can harbor harmful allergens that can lead to serious health issues if left untreated. Mold, mildew, dander, pests, and pest droppings can build up inside the ducts. When air blows through them, it picks up particles and circulates it through your home leading to poor indoor air quality. An inspection can tell if your ducts need cleaning.
Before you spend another summer with dirty or damaged ductwork, call in the pros for a duct inspection. Qualified HVAC technicians can inspect and evaluate their condition and make recommendations for cleaning or repair.
