Ductwork tends to be one of those out-of-sight, out-of-mind kind of things when it comes to your air conditioning system. Without proper ductwork, however, air can’t be dispersed evenly throughout your home. What’s worse, faulty ductwork pulls dust, mold and other pollutants into your home, creating or worsening allergies and presenting indoor air quality issues.
Eventually, the ductwork will need to be replaced, so it’s important to know the signs of replacement and who to call when the time comes.
5 Signs Your Ductwork Needs To be Replaced
1. Your ductwork is old.
Is your ductwork more than 50 years old? If so, it could contain asbestos, which is dangerous for anyone exposed.
2. There’s visible mold in your home.
Florida is no stranger to humidity and extra humid conditions can result in mold developing in your ductwork. Since mold is a potential health hazard, it’s important to have your ducts cleaned or replaced if you notice signs of mold.
3. The ductwork has cracks, tears or holes.
If your ductwork has cracks, tears or holes, air produced by your AC will seep through these outlets, costing you comfort and money.
4. Your house has inconsistent temperatures throughout.
Do you experience cold spots or hot spots in certain areas of your home? This could be a sign of faulty ductwork.
5. There’s dirt or debris around registers.
Excess dirt and debris around registers usually means there is a breach in your ductwork and air is escaping.
