It won’t come as any surprise to you that nearly every single person who lives in the Tampa Bay area uses a centralized air conditioning system so that they can cool their house effectively. This means that nearly every home in the city also uses ductwork to transfer air throughout the house. Seeing as how your ductwork is mostly hidden from view, it can often be difficult to know if there is something wrong with the inner workings. This is where the professional HVAC technicians at Momentum AC come in. If you have a damaged duct, it can prevent your entire system from working properly and it can end up costing you a ton of money in the long run. Find out what different issues with your ducts can mean for your home and why it’s important to have your ducts inspected every now and then.
Issues Caused By Breached Ductwork
If you want to use your central air conditioning system, you are going to have to be able to rely on your ducts. When the ductwork is leaking, conditioned air is being leaked out from the ducts and hot air can enter into the ducts to be released into your home. This can lead to a number of issues such as:
- Higher cooling costs
- Feeling uncomfortable in your home due to warmer temperatures
- Uneven temperatures throughout your home
- Poor indoor air quality
- Strain that you don’t need on your AC system
We know, you cannot see your ducts on a daily basis, so how can you know if they are leaking or not? Lucky for you, professional HVAC technicians can help you to identify any potential problems.
If you want to know for sure if your ducts have been breached, you will need a professional to conduct an inspection and perhaps a duct testing service. This is unfortunately not a task that you can perform by yourself as you must be a trained professional to do it correctly. Don’t worry, this is not a procedure that is invasive and nothing in your home will be damaged when it is completed.
If there is a leak located, duct sealing will almost always be the next step. This is not something that can be completed by you with a handy roll of duct tape(despite what the name implies). However, by hiring one of our trained technicians, you can ensure that your ducts are in working order.
