According to an experienced contractor specializing in ductwork services, almost 70% of US homes are wasting energy due to damaged and leaking ductwork. Fortunately, this issue can be easily fixed with ductwork replacement. This is something every homeowner should consider because air duct replacement is necessary at least 8-10 years after the installation of the HVAC unit. This is the average lifespan of ductwork, but not the only factor in considering HVAC duct replacement. In some cases, you may have to call specialists sooner to fix awkward routing or even poor installation.
Signs You May Need Air Duct Replacement
There are always warning signs that you may have to call an HVAC specialist for duct replacement. The most noticeable issues are:
- Poor airflow inside your house
- Hot or cold spots in various areas in the house
- Higher energy bills
- Moldy odor in the air circulated through the vents.
Some homeowners also report noisy operation of their HVAC system as one of the causes leading to air duct replacement.
Reasons to Prioritize Ductwork Replacement
Can air duct replacement wait? After all, the HVAC unit is still working. However, due to old or damaged ductwork, the central HVAC unit endures intense wear and tear in order to maintain the temperature you set in all rooms.
Ignoring ductwork problems is not a solution but waiting for a bigger problem to happen. You may think you saved the air duct replacement cost, but you may have to pay even more to replace a critical part of the HVAC equipment or the entire unit.
