Maintaining the integrity of the ducts in the ventilation system of your house is vital for receiving quality heating and cooling and to keep your HVAC system in the best shape.

Why Ductwork Repair Is Important
Ducts are designed with an airtight seal to prevent the air pressure inside them from dropping. Damaged ductwork will leak air, and the loss of air pressure will lead to a host of problems. It will reduce the heating and cooling power of your air conditioner and heater, causing hot and cold spots to appear around your home. Broken ducts will also permit in large amounts of outside debris and chemicals that shouldn’t be inside a home’s ventilation system, and this will lower your indoor air quality.
Ducts in need of repair will also cost you money. According to the U.S. EPA, even slightly damaged ducts with small air leaks can contribute to decline of the efficiency of a heating and cooling system declining by up to 20%. That means you’ll end up paying a fifth more to keep your home comfortable—and that’s for only minor air leaks.
How to Tell You Need Duct Repair
You might wonder how you can tell you have ducts in need of repair if you can’t see most the ductwork in the first place. There are some signs to look for that will warn you the time has come to call the team at Roznovak's Services:
- Unusually hot or cold rooms: Air leaks along ducts will lead to insufficient heating or cooling in certain rooms. Uncomfortable temperatures and stuffy air appearing in places around your home can often indicate ductwork collapse.
- Bad odors from the vents: If a duct develops leaks or larger breaks, it will often open up on a region in your house (such as between walls) filled with dust, dirt, and chemical fumes. These pollutants will enter the ductwork and then flow out through the vents, creating distinct odors. Burning and acrid odors could also warn that a dust infiltration from the breaks has entered the heater or AC.
- Spikes in heating and cooling costs: A cumulative effect of a drop in air pressure, loss of cooling, and infiltration of contamination is that an HVAC system will work harder than necessary to reach its target temperature. The drop in efficiency will cause your monthly utility bills to begin a sharp upward turn. Always have professionals investigate sudden heating and cooling cost leaps to see if damaged ductwork is responsible.
