When Is Duct Replacement Necessary?

Occasional duct sealing will take care of leaks along the ventilation shafts. Sometimes, however, you will need to have aging or poorly installed ducts replaced with new ones.

How you can tell you need duct replacement

It’s easy to detect when you need to replace most appliances in a home, because they sit in plain sight. But it is different with ductwork, most of which remains hidden behind the walls of your home. To tell when you need repairs or replacements for you ductwork, you have to watch for other warning signs.

The biggest tip you’ll receive that you have severely damaged ducts that require replacement is when your utility bills take a sudden upward leap. A small leak in the ducts will cause a small jump: extreme damage will make a noticeable difference. Although there are other possibilities for such spikes in HVAC costs, you will still need to call in experts to investigate and find a solution.

Uneven cooling/heating is another way to tell that you have ductwork damage. In this case, the way the cool or warm air is distributed will help inform you where the damaged ducts might be. If a particular room in your home is the wrong temperature when the HVAC system is on, check on the airflow coming from the room vent. If there is no airflow, or if it is extremely low, then you have a major duct issue that needs repair or replacement work done on it immediately.

The right professionals will be able to determine if repairs will do the job, or if you should consider replacement. Often, replacement is necessary to overcome poor installation work; if you moved into an older home, it may have received a bad amateur or DIY job on its ventilation. Replacement may also be necessary for older metal ducts that have developed corrosion.
