If you live in an older home, your ductwork might not be adequate for modern high-efficiency HVAC technology. Ducts and their related components—seams, seals and joists—begin to deteriorate around 15 years. They arrive at their maximum usability around 20 to 25 years.
Ductwork also expands and contracts throughout the seasons. These shifts over the years can cause it to separate and allow air to escape. Leaks can hike your heating and cooling expenses and cause poor indoor air quality. Cracked ducts can bring in and diffuse pollen, dust and other impurities.
Your attic, crawl space, garage or other uninsulated space could contain some of your ductwork. Condensation can occur during periods of high humidity, causing rust to eat through the metal.
5 Signs You Need to Replace Your Ductwork
There are a couple of other clues that can indicate ductwork needs to be replaced:
1.Your ducts are more than 15 years old.
2.Your home is excessively dusty, or allergies are worse at home.
3.You can’t regulate the temperature in certain areas.
4.You can see ducts that are misshapen.
5.You smell a strong musty odor when your HVAC unit is on.
