The Hidden Costs of Neglected Ductwork

The Hidden Costs of Neglected Ductwork

Do you need replacement ducts?

Do you need replacement ducts? Replacing your ducts is well worth it. It helps you save money. It also helps improve comfort – doubly important as temperatures outside staying in the 90s. You can also improve indoor air quality, which helps keep everyone healthy. Neglecting ductwork is detrimental to you, even if you don’t realize it!


Your home loses 20-30% of heated and cooled air. Losing heated air in the summer might not sound like a problem (it might help with the sweating!) but losing cooled air is a major concern. Leaks, poor connections, and holes all contribute to this air loss. You’ll need to get your ductwork inspected, especially when it hasn’t been inspected in far too long.


The size of the ductwork matters. It doesn’t matter if it’s too big or too small – both conditions are equally problematic. Replacing them gets you the best results. Otherwise, you’ll have to put up with uneven heating and cooling throughout your house, which can make it hard to relax in your living room or get sleep at night in your bedroom.


Ninety percent of homes in the U.S. don’t have enough insulation. This situation is a problem no matter what time of year it is. Make sure your attic is properly insulated to improve HVAC efficiency.


Finally, consider the merits of resealing. The seams and joints are most likely to spring a leak, so that’s where the sealant should be applied. Your comfort and that of your family is most important so don’t neglect your ductwork. It’s an easily avoidable mistake!


Properly configured ductwork helps to minimize the amount of airborne pollutants and biological pathogens – during this pandemic, that’s a comforting thought. Replacing the ductwork also cuts down the noise coming from your home’s HVAC, and that can be a definite relief as well.
