Duct Repair and Sealing in Dallas

Ductwork Can’t Last Forever

If you own an older home, your air ducts may not be enough for modern high-efficiency HVAC systems. Ducts and their various pieces—seams, seals and joists—may start to break down around 15 years. They reach their maximum life span at approximately 20 to 25 years.

Ductwork can also expands and contracts through different temperatures. These changing conditions over the years can cause it to break loose and leak air. Leaks can increase your utility costs and lead to poor indoor air quality. Damaged ducts can also draw in and spread pollen, dust and other impurities.

Your attic, crawl space, garage or other noninsulated space may contain some of your ductwork. Moisture can collect during periods of high humidity, causing rust to wear away the metal.

An inefficient home can lose up to 30% of airflow because of gaps in your air ducts.

5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Ductwork

There are a few other clues that could indicate ductwork may need to be replaced:

  1. Your ducts are older than 15 years.
  2. Your home is very dusty, or allergies are worse at home.
  3. You can’t manage the temperature in certain rooms.
  4. You can see ducts that are crushed.
  5. You smell a bold musty scent when your HVAC system is on.

Adding new ductwork can make your home cozier—and healthier—through optimized temperature management and air quality. In addition, it can strengthen your furnace’s and air conditioner’s efficiency.

Old, Leaky Ducts in Dallas Could Cost You

Ductwork is a vital part of your Dallas home’s heating and air conditioning system. When it’s working properly, it provides plentiful comfort throughout your house.

An average home leaks 20 to 30 percent of its conditioned air because of poorly connected ducts and cracks in the ductwork. Air leaks can make your equipment work harder and lead to higher home energy costs.

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

  1. Heating and cooling expenses are increasing.
  2. Rooms feel stuffy.
  3. Ductwork runs through an uninsulated area, such as an attic, crawl space or garage.
  4. Your HVAC system is constantly noisy.

Loose, Uninsulated Ducts Can Increase Energy Bills

An inefficient home can waste up to 30 percent of airflow through its ductwork. Openings in your air ducts can expand further, reducing efficiency by as much as 20 percent.

Leaks can also draw in combustion gases like carbon monoxide that are supposed to be discharged out of your home. Natural gas water heaters, clothes dryers and furnaces produce small amounts of CO during normal use.
