Well-designed, properly installed ductwork is vital for a traditional HVAC system to function properly. It’s been proven that an HVAC system can lose up to 30% of its efficiency through faults in the ductwork.
This means that even the most efficient heating and cooling system can become crippled by a less-than-efficient ductwork system. When you want to make sure that your ducts aren’t dragging your entire system down and you need the best duct repair services around, then the pros here at Hill & Company have you covered.
Air ducts are usually installed in places where they aren’t easily accessible, like attics, crawlspaces and between walls.
While this keeps them out of the way, it comes with the unfortunate consequence of making it difficult to identify when problems might impact your system.
Fortunately, there are a few signs that all homeowners should be aware of when it comes to residential ductwork.
The team here at Hill & Company wants all our clients to know about them so they can stay on top of the condition of their HVAC system and know when to call for repairs before minor problems become major.
Ductwork is meant to provide a sealed pathway between the air handler and the rooms of your home. If you notice poor or disrupted airflow in different rooms of your home, it could be a sign that a segment of your ductwork is damaged and needs to be repaired.
Even if there isn’t a noticeable difference in airflow, specific rooms being significantly hotter or cooler could indicate ductwork faults. Damaged air ducts, leaks, kinks and holes can cause inconsistent temperatures. Reach out to our team to schedule a system inspection if you’re experiencing this in your home.
Typically, the HVAC system is responsible for a significant portion of the energy consumed by a home. That’s why your utility bill could be a good indicator of the ongoing status of your HVAC system.
The only major changes in your utility bills generally come from the shift from summer to winter and vice-versa. If you notice any abnormal fluctuations in your utility bill, it’s a good idea to have your system inspected by a professional.
As long as you’re being diligent about changing your system’s air filters, there should be minimal buildup in your vents and registers. If you notice any excessive dust buildup, it could be a sign that a fault in the system is allowing dust into your ducts.
Ductwork is supposed to form an enclosed, sealed pathway for your conditioned air. Strange noises coming from your ducts, such as squeaking, rattling and whistling could be a sign of loose registers and connections. These issues can lower your system’s efficiency and should be repaired as soon as possible.
