6 Signs Your HVAC System Needs Duct Repair
- Air Quality
When you get an HVAC system, you’ll also have to install ductwork for it and keep it well-maintained. You may try to keep it out of sight and out of mind, but the duct system is an important part of your HVAC system, and you shouldn’t neglect it. It’s important to be able to tell when you should call for professional duct repair work. By calling for help before your system breaks down, you can save plenty of money avoiding expensive repairs.
Here are six signs that you should call for duct repair work:
Higher energy bills
Energy bills tend to increase during the hotter and colder parts of the year. However, increasing bills might also mean your HVAC needs some examination. Thoroughly check your HVAC system’s refrigerant levels, filters, and fans. Also, keep in mind that the electrical connections can get worn down, and you should call a professional to fix those.
Dirt and dust
Since vents use your home’s air, dust and other contaminants can get in the ducts. Luckily, there’s a replaceable filter that can keep most of the contaminants from getting in there. However, debris can still get through and damage the inner workings of the HVAC system. If there’s too much dust in your vents, you might need to switch the filter.
Holes in the ducts
Tears and holes in your ducts can leak the air you’re trying to heat or cool. The holes make your HVAC system inefficient, increasing your bills. If your ducts are getting too holey, call Climate Control Experts to help patch them up.
HVAC systems circulate your home’s air through ducts and expel the heated or cooled air through vents. However, sometimes the air may not blow hard enough. Several things might be causing it. There might be an animal’s nest in the ducts, or the ductwork might be damaged or disconnected. Sometimes, you might just have furniture or a rug blocking the vents. If you follow the vents to where the air isn’t flowing as strongly, you might find the source of the problem.
The popping noise you hear when you turn on your HVAC is just the ducts expanding or contracting due to the temperature. However, continuous loud or rattling noises means you’re dealing with loose or damaged ducts. Check the ducts by turning on the system without the interior air handler, which is that large silver box inside your home. If there’s no noise coming from the outdoor unit, then the ducts have a problem.
Hot and cold spots
Are you still experiencing hot areas even though the AC is on? Damage to your ducts might cause cold air to leak, preventing your ducts from cooling your home. The same goes for when you’re trying to heat your home and it’s still cold.
