Your heating and air conditioning system only works as long as the ducts that distribute the air are in good shape. When breaches occur – either through age or more direct damage – they can cause considerable problems. Here in San Antonio, duct repair services can usually correct the problem promptly, but you still need to be able to recognize trouble and call for help when it arrives.

Signs That You Need Duct Repair
- Lower air flow. The biggest issues surrounding a breached duct is the way that it can pull condition ed air out of your system. That will result in lowered air flow, forcing your heater or air conditioning unit to work harder in order to do the same job. If your unit doesn’t seem to blow air quite as hard as it should, there may be a breach in your ducts.
- Reduced cooling capacity. Sometimes, the breach won’t pull air out, but rather suck air in. In that case, the air will mix with the conditioned air already travelling through it, and either heat it up (in the case of air conditioning) or cool it off (in the case of heating). Again, this impacts your system’s ability to do its job, costing you money in the process.
- Strange noises. In some cases air pulled through the breach will create odd sounds as the metal vibrates or stretches in response. This is actually quite helpful in determining the exact spot of the breach, as well as helping you spot the problem. Sadly it doesn’t happen in every case.
- Dirt. A breached duct may pull in dirt and debris from the outside, which will spread throughout your home and can often be seen emerging from the ducts.
The signs that you need duct repair can actually be quite helpful because they alert you to the nature of a problem that might otherwise persist.
