When to Replace Ducting
High quality, rigid ductwork can last quite a long time in a home or office. However, it does need to be inspected and tested periodically to check for gaps or other damage. Lower quality ducting and flexible ductwork do not hold up as well as the years go by. With these materials, you can expect to start considering duct replacement around the 10-year mark. Regardless of age, routine inspection is important since loose or punctured sections allow valuable conditioned air to escape while providing an entrance for dirt, insulation, water and vermin. Because of the risk of contamination, it is best to arrange for duct sealing as soon as damage is discovered.
Age isn’t the only reason to consider duct replacement. To be efficient and effective, the layout of the ducting must be balanced properly so that adequate amounts of air move from one place to another. If these runs are set up incorrectly, the system has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. You might notice hot or cold spots in the house, or it may seem like the unit is constantly running. This means extra wear and tear on your HVAC system and more money out of your pocket. A thorough inspection and test can determine whether the ductwork is the problem.
