Signs You Need Duct Repair Services
Ductwork is usually installed in the ceiling or under the floor, which makes it hard to tell if there are any problems with it. Keep an eye out for any of the following signs that could indicate that you need to call for duct repair or replacement services.
- Odors – If you notice that when you turn on your air conditioning or heater that foul odors come through the registers, it could mean that you need to repair leaks or cracks in your ducts. It could also mean that you have bacteria growing in your ducts and you just need them cleaned.
- Noises – When you hear noises like rumbling, rattling, or whistling it could mean that you need to have your ducts repair or replaced.
- Efficiency – Watch your energy usage bills and if you see that they are increasing without an increase in your usage, it could mean that your ducts are collapsed, pinched or clogged in some way.
When to Replace or Repair your Ducts
Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether you should have your ducts repaired or replaced. If you’re having any doubts about your ducts, just call Hood Canal Heating & Cooling. Our professional duct repair technicians have years of experience and they can work with you to figure out if you need duct repair or replacement services. But here are some things that could indicate that you should replace your ducts.
- Mold growth – If you have flexible ductwork and it develops mold growth, you will most likely need to replace the whole duct system since that type of ductwork can’t be easily cleaned.
- Pervasive cracks – If you have older ductwork that has developed cracks and leaks throughout it, then it would likely be more cost–effective to just pull the old ductwork out and replace it. Not only that, but by getting new ductwork you would almost certainly improve the efficiency of your home.
- Bad installation – Poor duct installation is one of the leading cause of duct problems. If the builder of your home didn’t plan out the ductwork carefully, there could be extra bends in it, collapsed sections, and tears. In some cases, the existing ductwork can just be re–engineered and re–mapped but sometimes this could cause the need for duct replacement.
