When planning to update your heating and ac system, don’t forget your ductwork! It’s a major factor that will keep your home feeling just right. Leaky ductwork can jeopardize the comfort of your home before you know it.
If your home is too hot or too cold, that could be the first sign of a flaw in your ductwork. It could put a strain on the rest of your system. Your heat pump could be top of the line, but when paired with a bad duct, you won’t receive the full benefits.
Here are a few other ways a leaky duct can negatively affect you and the comfort of your home:
- The system will work harder to make up for the air that’s escaped
- Your system will be under more stress, which can take a few years off its lifespan
- Your home will not cool/heat as well as it should, which can cause high energy bills
- Dirt and debris can enter your system which will lead to air quality issues
Scheduling A Duct Evaluation
When you schedule a duct evaluation through O’Brien, it’s a complimentary service that could ultimately save you time and money. An inspection can also save you from making an emergency call in the future.
We’ll send one of our Design Specialists to your home to evaluate your system. During the evaluation, they will look over the installation and overall condition of the system. The material and other elements can influence the lifespan of this system. So, make sure to have this service performed annually!
When you walk through your front door, you expect your home to be comfortable. However, when your home is too hot or too cold, has poor air quality, or you notice your energy bill climbing higher and higher, you may need your ductwork evaluated.
