If you notice dust and dirt around your vents, this is a sign of a filtration issue in the duct system. It's not uncommon for some rooms to be warmer or cooler than others. You may be surprised to learn that your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can lose up to 30% of its air due to improper installation, holes, and leaks. This can lead to high energy bills, poor air distribution, poor indoor air quality, and reduced performance. The solution for hot and cold spots involves designing and sizing the ducts correctly, as well as sealing them hermetically to allow adequate airflow in all rooms.
If your pipeline network has been in operation for more than 15 years, it's time to replace it. Ducts that have been in operation for so long often have serious design defects, such as an incorrect duct size and a lack of a proper design. To help you determine if your ducts need repair or replacement, here are some important signs to look out for.
