Sometimes it can seem like you have constant repairs on your home. There seems to always be something you can fix or upgrade, and the projects can seem endless. It is best to fix things before the problems become larger though. And this rings true for air duct repairs. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some signs that your air ducts are leaking.
Unusually High Electric or Gas Energy Bills
When your air ducts are leaking, you will notice higher energy bills as a result. This is one of the biggest reasons you want to get the problem fixed right away. A good way to check this is to compare your energy bill with a bill from a year ago. If you see a dramatic change in the cost of energy, you could have a problem. When your air ducts are leaking, that air that you have spent a pretty penny on to heat your home, is pouring outside and doing you no good. Don’t waste money on leaky ducts!
Hot & Cold Spots in My House
When your air ducts are leaking, it is hard to get the warm air evenly distributed in your home. You will notice that some rooms are incredibly warm and stuffy, while other are chilly. This is a big sign of a problem if you have checked the vents and they are all open. Some people mistakenly think there is an issue with their floor plan, when really it’s an issue with leaky air ducts.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you have any respiratory illnesses or suffer from severe allergies, you will know right away when your indoor air quality is poor. Some of the issues that arise from poor indoor air quality are:
• Built Up Dust– If you notice you are having a hard time keeping up with the dust accumulating on the surfaces in your home, this is a sign of poor indoor air quality.
• Mold Problems– When you have leaky ducts, they pull air from places like your attic and crawl spaces. This air is sometimes more humid than you would like. When there is too much humidity in your air, you run the risk of having mold growth in your house. This is a huge problem for allergy sufferers everywhere.
