When to Call for Air Duct Repair
It’s not always easy to tell when you need air duct maintenance or repair, besides an excessively dirty home interior or a sudden increase in allergy symptoms. Here are a few reasons to call for ductwork repair.
Hot or Cold Spots
If you have rooms that are always hotter or colder than the rest of the house, you might have air leaks in the ductwork. Repairing them makes it easier to ensure that the conditioned air reaches every room in the right amount.
Dirty Vents and Registers
Your HVAC system is designed to remove most dust and dirt before it passes through your system. If the filter gets too clogged, you may notice dust accumulating around the vents and registers. You could see it settling in rooms, as well.
Low Air Flow
Poor air flow coming through the vents could be a sign of a problem with your ductwork. Ductwork that is leaky, clogged or crushed won’t pass air fully, which translates into minimal air movement by the time it reaches the room.
Signs of Damage
Like any other piece of equipment, your ductwork can wear out over time. If it’s tangled or crushed, you won’t get effective air flow. You might hear strange noises. Old ductwork is more likely to have gaps or holes, which can decrease your efficiency.
Mold, Mildew or Pests
Since you don’t spend much time looking in your ductwork, you may end up with problems inside it. Mold or mildew grow better in dark, warm places. Pests also like to build nests in the same type of place, and your ductwork is a prime location.
Air Quality in a Hot Climate
Las Vegas is famous for its hot, dry climate. With only four inches of precipitation per year and summer highs well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s not surprising that the climate has an effect on your indoor air quality. Here are a few ways that the heat of the region can make it harder for you to maintain indoor air quality:
- Environmental pollutants: Extreme heat increases the level of ozone near the ground.
- Dust: Dry regions make it difficult to keep dust from entering your HVAC system.
- Common allergens: A longer growing season increases the amount of pollen on your property.
- Wildfires: Wildfires release contaminants such as carbon monoxide into the air, in quantities that your HVAC system may not be able to manage.
If you’re struggling with allergies or headaches, these issues could be the cause. Improving your ductwork is one step to improving your indoor air quality. Air duct replacement, along with other tasks such as sealing air leaks, could minimize the effects of many of these problems.
