Ductwork is one of the most important components of the standard HVAC system. Acting similarly to arteries in a body, ductwork is designed to create a sealed pathway that allows filtered, conditioned air to make it from your heater or AC to the rooms of your home.
Faults in a duct system can cripple a perfectly good HVAC system by allowing conditioned air to escape before it ever has the chance to enter your home. This means that AC duct replacement is one of the best and easiest ways to give an aging system a new lease on life by greatly increasing efficiency by reducing the amount of conditioned air lost in the attic.
If you’re looking for the absolute best ductwork services in New Braunfels, the team here at Thayer Air Conditioning is here with the skills you need and experience you can count on.
The best ductwork is often hidden away and seldom seen or thought about. While this may be convenient for design, it can make it difficult to determine when something is wrong with your system.
The sooner you call the professionals to address your duct problems, the better! Air ducts are a major component of your HVAC system. If a piece needs to be replaced, it’s best to identify it quickly and get the problem resolved.
Fortunately, there are some key conditions that every homeowner can look out for that can potentially indicate that your ductwork needs to be replaced or at the very least, inspected by a professional.
A well-installed/maintained HVAC system should be able to create consistent temperature levels throughout a home. If your system is heating or cooling inconsistently, it could be a sign that conditioned air is failing to reach its destination due to multiple failure points in the ductwork.
It’s been proven that an HVAC system can lose up to 30% of its efficiency through faults in its ductwork. This makes your ducts one of the single greatest failure points for your entire system — and every percentage of inefficiency is directly translated into a higher utility bill.
Noticing sudden increases in your utility costs should never be ignored and can often be an indicator of something wrong with your system.
As ductwork ages, the fittings and connections that hold it together can deteriorate and become loose. While this doesn’t always lead to a loss in efficiency, excessive noise from your ductwork almost always leads to a loss of peace and quiet at home.
While noisy components can often be replaced individually, some systems can get so noisy that it’s best to replace them entirely.
Mold and mildew growth is a common issue for ductwork and doesn’t always mean that outright replacement is necessary.
However, when regular cleaning is neglected and mold infestation is given time, the problem can get so bad that it’ll require your system to be replaced entirely.
Nothing lasts forever and that includes our ductwork. While the exact amount of time you can expect from your ductwork will vary, you can expect an average of 15 years from your standard duct system — up to 25 years if the system is very well maintained.
If you’ve got an older system and are experiencing consistent problems with your HVAC, it might be time for new ducts.
Considering air duct replacement while carrying out other renovations offers the potential to save you money in the long run.
Not only will new ducts help ensure that the air being delivered to your new construction is fresh and pure, but installing new ducts while other construction is being carried out can save you money in labor.
