4 Common Signs Your Air Duct Needs Repairs
All things decline with age; it is the natural order of things. Your air ducts are among them. Considering the importance of ventilation and temperature control to daily comfort, damaged air ducts and vents can be a serious problem.
Damaged air ducts get dirty quite easily and often. They come with their share of health hazards too. Dirty air ducts can distribute dust, pollen, dirt, germs, and more throughout your home for you to breathe in. To preserve your health, you have to take good care of your ductwork.
To do this, you need the ability to know when they are faulty in the first place.
Thankfully, when air ducts do have a problem, they’re usually not shy about letting you know. All you would need to understand what’s wrong is a crash course in duct-speak (that’s what we’re here for).
You know you’ve got damaged air ducts over your head when:
- There is dust from the vents. Air ducts in good working order have airtight walls. This prevents insects and dust from causing problems. So having dust blowing out of your vents is a clue that you’ve got a leakage problem. Certainly not good for your allergies either.
- There are rattling or whistling sounds. These sounds can be caused by loose metal duct sheets that vibrate when the wind from your HVAC is flowing through the air ducts. Don’t get used to them. They’ll only get worse. Fix them as soon as you can.
- You realize that more of your budget goes to electricity than usual. This is also caused by air leakage from your ducts. Leakages make your HVAC seem less effective and make you play with the temperature a bit. You’ll notice the jump in your electricity bills soon if you haven’t.
- There are uneven room temperatures. Are there warm or cold spots in your home? Do they force you to have favorite spots in your own house? Don’t let defective air ducts drive you out. Take the battle to them and show them who’s boss by calling in professionals to repair your ducts and vents (that’s us, if you were wondering).
When you’ve identified a problem, the next step is to set about fixing it. We recommend doing this promptly when it comes to your ductwork. A stitch in time saves nine, after all. And nine stitches are nine times as costly as one.
That’s how absurdly expensive a delay can be.
