Replacing ducts in your Fayetteville, North Carolina, home isn’t cheap, but you’ll waste more money in the long run by continuing to force conditioned air through damaged ducts. When your ducts are beyond repair, several signs like rust and compromised airflow will signal it’s time for duct replacement.
The Seals and Joints Are Rusty or Damaged
You can see parts of your duct system in your attic or crawl space. Sometimes ducts are exposed in the corners of closets, too. Check the parts you can see. Are the joints worn or damaged? Do the ducts have any holes or rusty spots? Has any part of the duct ever been repaired with duct tape? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, we’ll need to examine your ductwork thoroughly.
Your Airflow Is Compromised
The airflow through your vents should be consistent. When your system is on, go from room to room and check the air coming through the vents. If the air coming through one or more vents doesn’t seem to have enough pressure, that could mean part of the ductwork is damaged or disconnected. You’re wasting valuable money for temperature treated air that isn’t even reaching you effectively.
The Ducts Are Old
Most residential ductwork only lasts for 10 to 15 years before it needs serious repairs or replacement. If you’ve lived in your home for a longer period and never had the ducts replaced, call us for a duct blower test. Not sure how old the duct work is? We’re happy to take a look.
