The HVAC system is at the heart of every home, and the duct network acts as the arterial roadway that delivers conditioned air throughout your living space. The condition of your air duct system plays a big role in the comfort of your home and the efficiency of your HVAC system, and if there is a problem with your ductwork, it can affect performance and even shorten the life span of your equipment. Acosta Heating, Cooling & Electrical can help, with professional ductwork renovation services, including replacement, resizing, and sealing.
Signs You Need a Duct Renovation
If you have been experiencing issues with comfort, air quality, or high energy bills, your ductwork may be to blame. A duct inspection from one of our certified technicians can help to determine the cause of the problem and make a recommendation to restore the functionality and performance of your HVAC system. Watch for these signs that a ductwork renovation may be in your future:
Depending on the quality of the installation and the type of equipment that was used, your ductwork may last upwards of 50 years or more, but some materials may show signs of wear in as little as 10 to 15 years. If your ductwork is older than 15 years and you have experienced signs of poor HVAC performance, you may need a ductwork renovation or to have your entire air duct system replaced.
If your HVAC system continuously turns off and on, rather than operating in normal five- to fifteen-minute cycles, your ductwork may be interfering with the flow of air to and from your heating and cooling equipment. If the supply ducts are leaking, are incorrectly sized, or are bent or constricted, these issues will need to be resolved during your duct renovation.
Increased Utility Bills
An unexplained rise in the cost of energy may be the result of leaks, cracks, or disconnections within your duct network that are allowing the conditioned air to escape and forcing your HVAC system to work harder to maintain the temperature in your home.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Leaky ducts may allow contaminated air to be drawn in from unconditioned areas of your home, such as a basement or attic, and enter into your living space. The result may be an increase in allergy symptoms, dust production, or issues with humidity.
Recent Home Improvements
Home renovations such as an addition may require a redesign of your duct network or resizing of your ducts to accommodate the increase in airflow and to meet the current demands of your home.
