The Inside Scoop on Ductwork Problems
Your ductwork’s job is to efficiently distribute conditioned air from your HVAC system so your living space is at a comfortable temperature of your choosing. Supply ducts transport conditioned air throughout your home. Return ducts bring air back to your furnace or air handler to be reconditioned.
That sounds pretty basic. However, your ductwork is susceptible to a number of complex problems that make you uncomfortable, can harm your health and boost your utility costs.
Here are the three most common ductwork problems:
- Leaky ducts: This is the most common ductwork problem in Atlanta. Leaky ducts can diminish your HVAC system’s efficiency by up to 40 percent. Gaps in your ductwork can cause the conditioned area to leak into your attic, basement or crawl space. Leaks in your return ductwork permit unhealthy air—which is responsible for diseases, illness and allergies—to enter your home. Simply sealing your ductwork puts an end to these problems.
- Uninsulated or poorly insulated ductwork: Without proper insulation, your HVAC system has to work much harder to keep your air as comfortable as you want. For example, consider how frigid an uninsulated attic can be during Georgia’s winter. If your ductwork isn’t properly insulated, then your home’s heated air has no protection against the arctic temperatures in your attic. This means, as heated air passes through the ductwork in your attic, it gets cooled down by the cold attic air before being sent into your home. To make up for this loss of heat, your heating system has to work twice as hard to keep you comfy. Conversely, during the summer, the intensely hot air in your attic heats up the conditioned air, resulting in less chilled relief. But, with proper insulation, there’s no heat exchange, meaning your HVAC unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you warm or to cool you down. In turn, you can enjoy lower energy bills and reliable comfort.
- Imbalanced ductwork: Often, balance problems are the product of ductwork that’s not properly located or is improperly sized for your home. When your ductwork isn’t balanced, the amount of return air drawn in through your ducts is mismatched for the amount of air that’s being distributed out. This creates uneven and uncomfortable temperatures throughout your home and is a major waste of energy.
