HVAC Ductwork Basics

While it is an often-overlooked component of the home, ductwork plays a very important role in ensuring that you remain comfortable throughout the year. Your home’s ducts deliver heated and cooled air throughout your living space.

When there is a problem with your ductwork, you can experience various issues, including high energy costs and poor air quality. Service Plus Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is happy to share the following information regarding potential HVAC ducting issues that can occur in your home or business.

The Difference Ductwork Makes in HVAC Performance

If your HVAC system seems to be underperforming, the problem could be with your ductwork. Often, problems occur when vents are closed off or addition is made to the home without adjusting the ductwork to mirror the changes. Other issues that can occur include mold forming inside the ductwork. Air conditioning and heat-related problems from debris entering the ducts can also be an issue.

Issues That Can Occur From Ducting Problems

If the ductwork is altered or vents are closed off, the HVAC system must strain to compensate for the adjustments. This means that you could be wearing the system out, and this overworking could cause an HVAC failure. Constantly running the fan rather than allowing it to automatically come on when necessary can also wear out filters and blow mold and other contaminants throughout the home if they exist.

Addressing the ductwork with an HVAC professional who can make a recommendation to resolve the issues before they occur is the best remedy for these problems. Deferring maintenance for your HVAC system is never recommended as it can lead to very expensive repairs and may even affect your health and that of your family.
