Are Leaky Ducts Dangerous?

February 20, 2016 Colman Heating & Air

Since air ducts are often out of sight, they are usually out of mind as well. Your family members might notice the health effects of the leaky air duct. However, you may not realize that these health problems are caused by holes in your ducts, rather than the unit itself. If you have a leak in your unit, there are several problems that you might face.

How to Check Ductwork for Leaks | Signs That You Have a Leaky Air Duct

If you notice that a room of your house has become more difficult to heat or cool, this can indicate a leaky air duct. While the health concerns associated with a leaking air duct might be your greatest concern, your home will also become less efficient if you do not repair your ducts.

Air Duct Leaks Cause a Carbon Monoxide Buildup

When a leak occurs in an enclosed space, flue and radon gas are then moved around the home and can accumulate to toxic levels. While you should always get your air ducts fixed, you should also have a carbon monoxide detector installed to detect any increase in carbon monoxide as a result of a duct leak.

Air Duct Leaks Allow Contaminants to Come Into Your Home

Leaky ducts can cause a buildup of dangerous substances that can cause health problems, such as moisture, dust and mold. If you are a sufferer of allergies, an air duct leak can worsen your symptoms. If you have children or elderly members of your family living in your home it is especially critical that you have your leaky air ducts repaired. Moisture can be drawn into your air ducts and distributed throughout the home, contributing to mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can lead to asthma and other serious respiratory concerns.
