When it comes to your home’s comfort, even a brand new air conditioner won’t cool your home if you have old ducts.
Ductwork is a vital part of your home’s comfort. And while you many think about it less than you do the rest of your AC system, it is just as important as your air conditioner. So when there is a problem with your ducts, it’s important that you have them fixed or replace right away. Find out why your ducts are so important to your home’s comfort, and when it is time to upgrade them.
Why Your Ducts Are So Important
Your ductwork has one of the most crucial jobs. They are in charge of taking the air made by your AC and delivering it all over your house. However, if there are any holes or leaks in your ducts, then they are unable to do this job.
When this happens, the air is escaping to your attic or other parts of your home. This means you are paying to cool or heat parts of your house that you don’t even use. And now your AC has to work twice as hard just to keep your home comfortable. So you end up wasting more electricity and more money?
When to Replace Your Ductwork
There are two times when you should upgrade your ductwork. The first is when you start feeling inconsistent temperatures. One room may feel perfectly fine, while the others feel like hot boxes. This is usually a problem with the ducts. While you may not need to replace your entire ductwork, you will definitely need a repair.
The second reason you may need new ducts is if you have recently bought a new air conditioner. While your old ducts may have worked fine with your last AC, chances are your new system is much more powerful. Old ducts just can’t handle new AC’s. Pretty soon, your new ducts will get start forming leaks and your comfort will suffer.
