The Importance of Ductwork

Ductwork is a hidden element that is crucial to your home comfort, as ductwork is the system by which warm or cool air circulates throughout your home.

Most of the ductwork is hidden behind walls or in places that are not as frequently used as other areas of your home. Often it is in the attic, and for most of us ductwork can fall into the “out of sight, out of mind” category. This can cost you money, compromise your indoor comfort and even effect your health.

Why do I Need to Maintain my Ductwork?

Poorly maintained and leaky ductwork can cause the following problems:

  • May cause a rise in heating and cooling bills
  • Effect the indoor comfort of your home
  • Can negatively affect your health

Leaks in your ducts can occur where the ducts are joined together. Your furnace & air conditioner have used energy, that you pay for, to heat or cool the air. When that air doesn’t make it to the desired locations in your home, your HVAC unit has to work twice as hard to make up for the temperature lost, it is essentially like throwing money away.

Leaks can also cause undesired things from the air to leak into your duct system. This means contaminants like exhaust, fumes, carbon monoxide or many other pollutants, can enter your duct system and circulate around your home without you knowing it. This can cause a myriad of problems including causing respiratory problems or exacerbating problems that you may already have, such as asthma or allergies.
