3 Signs You Have Ductwork Leakage

July 22, 2019 Colman Heating & Air

In today’s day and age, most people use air conditioners to stay comfortable in their home. We all love the benefits it comes with, such as improving the quality of air, reducing allergies, and even preventing dehydration and heat strokes. However, the journey air goes through to cool your home can encounter several problems along the way. Leaky air ducts, for example, can cause mold issues, raise heating and cooling bills, and other expensive problems you don’t want to deal with.

What is an Air Duct or Ductwork?

Air ducts are basically tubes that are used to pass air, whether for heating or cooling purposes. They are usually located out of sight behind walls or above ceilings, making them easy to neglect. That being said, ducts are essentially the circulatory system of your home, which is why keeping them clean is so important. Learn additional dangers of ductwork leakage here.

3 Signs of Duct Leakage

1. High Energy Bills

A good way to check and see if there’s a leak is to review your utility bill. Does it seem like you’re getting your money’s worth or is it higher than usual? When you have an air duct that’s leaking, your air conditioning unit has to work harder to cool your home because of the lost air, and this causes your energy bills to spike.

2. Declining Indoor Air Quality

Leaking ducts can cause your AC unit to suck up dust, dirt, and other contaminants around your home. That dust and dirt then gets blown into different areas of your home, causing air quality to decline and could create potential health issues. Signs of declining air quality include a musty smell, more dust than usual on surfaces, or allergy symptoms that you usually don’t get indoors.

3. Rooms are Different Temperatures

There’s nothing worse than sitting down in a room and thinking “Is the air conditioning even on?”. Air ducts in your home are responsible for transporting air to different rooms, but if there’s a leak, air will seep through. This can cause one room to be noticeably warmer or cooler than another.
