It is important to have a sealed and properly installed duct system that can safely transport the heated or cooled air from your furnace to the rest of your home. If there are leaks in the ducts, you end up heating areas other than your living area, such as your crawl space or attic, as well as having contaminants such as insulation, dirt, and rodent droppings enter into your air stream and get into your home. That causes increased utility bills and decreased indoor air quality, which affects the health of you and your family.
Duct work can be damaged by poor installation, rodents chewing on it, flooding, or just old age. Any way you look at it, living with a compromised duct system isn’t good for your pocket or your health.
There are some signals to you as the homeowner that can help you determine if you might have a duct leakage or damage problem:
- Excessive dust
- Rooms that are hotter or colder than the rest of the house
- Increased utility bills
- Allergy-like health symptoms
- Mildew smell when the air is circulating in your home
