When our customers call us for duct repair, we often see air ducts that are sized incorrectly, especially in older homes. Many building codes now require proper duct design, so this is not as likely in newer homes or when you hire a licensed HVAC company you can trust. While some contractors may suggest replacing the entire ductwork system, it is not always the most cost-effective choice. There are other options.
If you have an older furnace or heat pump, replacing it with a new high-efficiency heating system may be one option, even if your ducts are undersized. Your heating contractor will know which system best fits your current ductwork. However, if there’s not enough return vents, you can add additional ones rather than replacing all the ductwork. If the ductwork has a lot of places where there’s significant air leakage, you may opt for a duct sealing service.
Most ductwork is installed in unfinished areas of the home, such as a basement or attic, and sealing the air ducts not only saves energy by preventing air leaks, but it can also ensure that unfiltered air does not get redistributed throughout the home. This will help improve indoor air quality and prevent particles from getting into the components of your heating system and damaging them over time.
