Air ducts are one of the most important parts of your HVAC system, but they’re easy to forget about when they stay hidden in the attic. An estimated 40% of your conditioned air could never make it to the rooms in your home if your air ducts are damaged. If your air ducts are leaky, torn or improperly installed, they lose the ability to do the one thing they’re designed to do: distribute cool air throughout the house.
Problems with your air ducts can cause damage to the rest of your HVAC system, causing it to work overtime to cool your home. If your air ducts are damaged, you’ll pay for it in your monthly energy bills and, eventually, in the cost of a new AC unit.
