The Problems with Bad and Damaged Ducts
People often aren’t aware of how poor duct design or broken and leaky ducts can become a problem for a house. Duct issues are responsible for a number of major issues in homes—and unfortunately, they’re quite common. Many houses have ineffectively designed ducts to start with, improperly placed and laid out to create bad airflow and easy heat loss or gain. Here are some of the consequences of bad ductwork:
- Energy waste: The blower fan of an HVAC system must strain harder against ducts that are either badly designed or which are allowing already heated and cooled air to go to waste. The higher bills you’re paying may not be the fault of the AC or the heater, but of a system of ducts that need professional work.
- Drop in comfort: A ductwork system that’s losing air to damage will allow the air pressure in the ventilation system to drop. As the airflow lessens, it leads to uneven comfort around the house and difficulty keeping the rooms either heated or cooled.
- Indoor air quality decline: A broken duct will start allowing air from closed–off areas of the home to slip into the ventilation system. Moldy, dusty, and humid air will begin to be distributed around the house.
Denver Duct Repair Services
The first step to finding out what needs to be done about your faulty ductwork is to have it tested. We use special equipment to measure the loss of air pressure in the ventilation system and find out the trouble spots. To close up smaller air leaks, we apply a mastic sealant. Larger breaks may require metallic tapes. (One tool we won’t use: cloth–backed "duct tape." This actually is not good for use on ducts at all. Please don’t try duct repairs yourself using duct tape.)
