6 Common HVAC Duct Problems

May 19, 2022 6:12 pm Published by

Air ducts are an important part of your heating and cooling system that is sometimes disregarded. Many times, homeowners are completely unaware that they have a problem. Look for these six typical duct problems if you think your HVAC system is inefficient or has regularly high energy bills.

  1. Inappropriate design

A duct system that efficiently transports air from one location to another with the least amount of distance and impediments is both cost-effective and efficient. Inefficient heating and cooling in your home will cause your energy bill to increase due to poor design.

  1. Inadequate insulation

A lot of money is wasted if your ducts are not properly insulated or are not insulated at all. Because a significant quantity of heat and air can escape this way, all ducting should be effectively insulated.

  1. Dirty duct cleaning

Dust, bacteria, and toxins travel through your ducts, causing the air inside your home to become significantly more polluted than the air outside. Cleaning your ducts on a regular basis will enhance the air quality in your home and make your system work more efficiently.

  1. Airflow problems (kinks/twists)

If your ductwork is flexible, make sure there are no kinks, twists, or other impediments in the way of airflow. These ducts can potentially get squashed, producing serious air circulation problems.

  1. Breakage in the ductwork

The ductwork that is loose or disconnected can cause air to escape into open space, affecting your interior air quality. According to HVAC specialists, the average home loses 20-40% of the air it circulates due to leaking ducts, leading your HVAC system to be inefficient.

  1. Registers and grills with poor sealing

Air escapes your ducts even before it reaches your rooms through improperly sealed registers at the duct connection, allowing insects, critters, and debris into your ductwork. Not only can air duct sealing impair energy efficiency, but it can also shorten the life of your HVAC system.

These HVAC duct problems require immediate attention. Since prolonged issues with air conditioning ducts can result in greater damage in the longer run, the issues will then be more expensive to rectify, in addition to requiring repair to a greater extent if not overall air conditioning duct, or unit, replacement. Therefore, to effectively mitigate these challenges, having professional services execute proper HVAC duct checks can go a long way in contributing to safe and effective maintenance of your air conditioning duct and unit health.
