Ductwork generally goes unseen. It’s often tucked away in the attic, basement or crawlspaces, designed to take up as little room as possible. However, just because it’s out of sight doesn’t mean it’s unimportant.
Good ductwork is vital in making sure that your HVAC system is running at its most optimal efficiency. Without a reliable pathway between the air handler and vent, all of the conditioned air that’s supposed to cool your home would be wasted in the attic — right along with your money.
Here at E+M Emergency Air Conditioning, we make it our business to understand the importance of good ductwork and make it our mission to provide an unmatched level of service to every single one of our customers.
When you’re in the market for Buda duct replacement, our professionals will take the time to make sure that your ductwork is installed in the most efficient way possible.
When considering when to replace your ductwork, it’s important to know the lifespan of the average system.
In general, ductwork will last between 20 and 25 years, with major degradation starting to become noticeable at around 15.
If your system is older than 15 years and you’re regularly experiencing any of the issues mentioned below, it may be in your best interest to consider a replacement. If your system is on the older side and approaching a quarter century in age, it’s almost guaranteed to be in your best interest to look into your replacement options.
As mentioned above, faults in your duct system can cause an otherwise functional system to lose up to 30% in efficiency. If such a large window impacts the efficiency of a system, duct issues tend to directly translate to a larger utility bill. Even if it’s subtle.
As ductwork is the literal pathway for conditioned air to make its way between your air handler and the rooms of your home, faults in it can easily translate to inconsistencies in the airflow.
Accumulation of dirt could cause an over the loss of airflow efficiency or a leak could cause both an overall loss of pressure and cause inconsistent airflow or heating/cooling throughout the home.
While some build-up around your vents and registers is inevitable, it’s important to take notice of any accumulation that seems larger than normal. Most of the time, this is a sign that your system could benefit from a simple cleaning. However, some instances of build-up will require total replacement, such as excessive amounts of mold.
Did you know that it’s recommended that you have your ductwork system professionally cleaned at least once every three to five years? How often your system needs to be cleaned will depend on several factors — but to keep functioning optimally, all systems will need to be cleaned eventually.
