The ducts inside your home do their job mostly removed from sight: they pass through ceilings, walls, floors, and attic space to bring you heated or cooled air to keep you comfortable any time of the year. But because those ducts remain hidden, you may not notice anything is wrong at first when they start to suffer breaks and kinks. And even if you do discover that your ducts are damaged, it’s easy to believe that it won’t make much difference if they go without repairs.
But duct repair is important, and you should never delay getting it done. For Wellington, FL duct repair that will give you all the following benefits, contact our duct experts at Envirotech Air Quality Services. We handle both duct repair and cleaning, and are ready with 24-hour emergency service.
- Better air quality: When ductwork develops gaps, holes, or breaks, your HVAC system will start to draw air from other parts of the house. Remember that your ducts are installed in closed-off areas that you rarely see—and these spots often contain dust and dirt. When these contaminants enter your ducts, they will also enter the air you breathe. Another major concern is an increase in humidity from this outside air, which can lead to mold growth. Sealing up the gaps will help keep your ducts—and your air—cleaner.
- More energy efficient heating and cooling: The air from those parts of your home that contain dust also contain air that is either warmer or cooler than whatever temperature your HVAC system is trying to provide you. As this air infiltrates the ducts, your HVAC system will have to work harder to get to its target temperature. You’ll see higher heating bills.
- Increased air flow: Ducts are supposed to be sealed along their length, from your heater/air conditioner all the way to the vents. This prevents loss of air pressure. Any gaps along the route will cause a drop in pressure and a decrease in the airflow coming from your vents. Aside from the problems of dust and energy drain listed above, damaged ducts will mean a loss in your heating and cooling power and uneven temperatures throughout your home.
