Duct Repair & Installation

Sealing and Insulating Your Ductwork | Zillow

If you reside in an older residence, the ductwork may not be suitable for modern high-efficiency HVAC systems. Ducts and their associated components—such as seams, seals, and supports—typically begin to deteriorate after approximately 15 years, with their peak functionality usually spanning 20 to 25 years.

Furthermore, ductwork experiences expansion and contraction throughout the seasons, which can lead to structural deterioration and potential leaks over time. These leaks have the dual effect of increasing energy expenses and degrading indoor air quality. Compromised ducts can act as conduits for the infiltration and distribution of allergens, dust, and other contaminants.

In some cases, portions of your ductwork may be located in uninsulated spaces like the attic, crawl space, or garage. In such environments, temperature fluctuations can lead to condensation, contributing to rust and corrosion that can weaken the metal over time.

 

5 Indicators It’s Time to Consider Ductwork Replacement

Several additional signs may suggest the need for ductwork replacement:

  1. Your ducts have surpassed the 15-year mark.
  2. Your home experiences excessive dustiness, or allergies worsen indoors.
  3. You struggle to maintain consistent temperatures in certain areas.
  4. You observe ducts that have been crushed or damaged.
  5. A noticeable musty odor emanates when your HVAC system is running.

Opting for Peachtree Service Experts to install new ductwork can bring enhanced comfort and health to your home by providing superior temperature regulation and air quality. Additionally, it can boost the efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner.

Old, Leaky Ducts Could Cost You

Ductwork is a vital extension of your Atlanta home’s heating and air conditioning system. When it’s working properly, it delivers ample comfort throughout your house.

An average home loses 20 to 30 percent of its conditioned air because of badly connected ducts and fractures in the ductwork. Air leaks can make your equipment work overtime and create higher home energy bills.

There are a few indications that your home has ducts that need to be repaired or replaced:

  1. Energy expenses are going up.
  2. Rooms feel stuffy.
  3. Ductwork is piped through an uninsulated location, like an attic, crawl space or garage.
  4. Your HVAC system is excessively noisy.

Uninsulated Ducts Can Drive Up Energy Bills

A home that lacks efficiency may experience up to a 30 percent loss of airflow through its ductwork. The presence of cracks in your air ducts can exacerbate this issue, potentially reducing efficiency by as much as 20 percent.

Furthermore, these leaks have the potential to draw in combustion gases like carbon monoxide, which are meant to be safely vented outdoors. Appliances such as natural gas water heaters, clothes dryers, and furnaces generate non-toxic amounts of carbon monoxide during regular operation.
