Signs That You Need Duct Repair
You may think that the fact that your air conditioner or heater is starting up and running regularly means that it is working properly. However, it may actually be struggling to do its job because of compromised ductwork. Now, your air ducts are largely hidden from view, so you cannot really visually inspect them for damages. There are, however, plenty of warning signs that you may notice which can indicate the need for duct repair in Whittier, CA. We fix it right the first time!
- Uneven temperatures throughout your home. This is one of the surest signs that you have a problem with your ductwork. If the length of ductwork servicing any given area in your home is leaking, then you can expect that area to be warmer or cooler than it should be.
- Increased energy costs. The air leaking out of your air ducts is going to wind up somewhere in your home. That means that you won’t be looking at a 100% loss in your investment. However, you will very likely see an increase in your heating and cooling costs without a clear cause.
- Declining indoor air quality. While air leaking out of your ductwork may be the first problem you think of when your ducts are compromised, you should also consider the fact that pollutants can make their way into the system. When that happens, the air quality in your home can suffer.
- Hissing or whistling sounds. It may be faint, but you may actually be able to hear air escaping from your ductwork. If you hear any odd sounds coming from your HVAC system, it is always in your best interest to schedule prompt service.
- Frequently dirty air filters. You should be changing air filters in your HVAC system regularly. Typically, they’ll need to be changed every 1–3 months. If they are getting very dirty very quickly, it could be due to pollutants entering the system via leaks.
