Knowing the state of your home’s air ducts is crucial to your health and safety. Depending on the age of your home, your air ducts might be decaying at this very moment. Older homes typically used sheet metal ducting held together with duct tape, these are particularly vulnerable to duct failure. Over time, the tape begins to fail and the ducts themselves can deteriorate and form gaps and even disconnect lines entirely. Worse, rodents can disconnect ducts or chew through them, creating an unhealthy breathing environment, circulating contaminated air through your home.
Furthermore, old or damaged ducts end up costing you more than your comfort, they can cost you quite a bit of money. When damaged ducts allow air to escape, your system must work overtime to heat or cool your home.
It’s essential for the health of your home to have properly functioning air ducts. Look for red flags, such as loss of heat or your HVAC system. If your system seems to be working harder than it should, you should absolutely consider having your ducts evaluated. While it could be something as simple as reconnecting a line that has fallen apart, it could be a larger issue. Either way, addressing the issue post haste will likely save you money on your next heating bill.
