Signs You Need to Replace Your Air Ducts?

An inadequate duct system can cause even the best-rated HVAC systems to run inefficiently. Even if the rest of your air conditioning equipment is the right size, it cannot function at peak capacity if the duct system doesn’t supply and return the right amount of air. Here are some signs that you need to replace your air ducts:

Air Leaks

You may lose as much as 40% of circulating air due to holes and tears in air ducts. It can make your air conditioning system very inefficient. HVAC technicians can correct leakage issues with professional sealing.

Dirty Air Ducts

Dust, air pollutants, viruses, and bacteria can collect in ducts and recirculate inside your home. The concentration of pollutants can be much more than outside, making indoor air quality a major concern.

Mold Growth

Excess moisture can allow mold to grow in areas you never see. Mold can spread throughout the system, cause blockages, or release harmful toxins. Periodic duct inspections are, therefore, crucial in spotting any trouble.

Smoke Damage

If there has been a fire in your home, the smoke has made its way into the ductwork. At the very least, smoke particles will collect with other debris and can cause metal surfaces in air ducts to corrode. Rusting is a serious problem for old ducts as well.

Poor Design

Design flaws include equipment not properly sized for your home, grills and registers that aren’t properly sealed, and flexible plastic ducts that are crushed, twisted, or kinked. These issues can cause serious problems with air circulation. Replacing air ducts is, therefore, an important job. You should consider a replacement if your home is old and still has its original ducts. Leakage due to physical damage, smoke damage, water damage, and rusting are all reasons to consider replacing your air ducts. Dirty fiberboard ducts should be replaced, as should flexible ducts that have developed mold. Replacement can resolve many issues and also allows you to benefit from newer and more efficient air ducts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Duct Replacement in Virginia

Should I repair or replace my air ducts?

Knowing when your air duct system only requires simple repairs can save you time and money. Signs to look out for when a repair is needed include leaky air ducts, poorly insulated systems or imbalanced ductwork. Eventually, all air ducts will need replacement. The age of your air ducts and damage caused by smoke, water or rust are the most common causes for air duct system replacements.

How Can I Tell If My Air Ducts Are Leaking?

If you hear strange sounds from your ducts, you could have leaky air ducts. Another obvious sign of air duct leakage is high energy bills. When air escapes out of the ducts, your system wastes energy, producing more hot or cold air. Your leaky ducts will likely result in a spike in your energy bill. It may also cause your system to run frequently.

How Long Does Duct Sealing Last?

Duct sealing lasts anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If you use quality materials and have a professional handle the duct sealing, it could last closer to the end of that range. However, most flex duct systems only last about 15 years and no amount of care will make them last longer. You should ask your HVAC technician about the length of time your duct sealing will last.
