Signs Your Ductwork Could Be Costing You Money

Signs Your Ductwork Could Be Costing You Money

Ever blast your AC only to feel warmish air puff out of the vent? Or maybe your home is barely cooling in Florida’s summer temps, but your electric bill is equivalent to the cost of a extravagant wedding. If either of these things has ever happened to you, you might have leaky ductwork. Before you schedule an AC repair, take a look at your ducts.

Signs Your Ductwork is Leaky

Rattle: if your ductwork is not fitted together properly, you’ll hear it. It can sound like a faint rattle, clanking, or in extreme cases -- like a small child is trying to crawl through your ducts.

Reduced airflow: if the air from your vents feels warmer than it should for what your thermostat is set on and the air is barely blowing, you probably have air escaping at some point in your ductwork. You may also notice that one vent blows high and cold, while another is hardly functioning.

Preferred Rooms: it’s not uncommon for family members to argue over who has a cooler room but in the case of leaky ducts, it’s probably true. Someone might be comfortable, while another is boiling.

Before You Schedule Your AC Repair & Maintenance...

Some ductwork issues can be fixed on your own. It depends largely on your initiative and where your ductwork is located. Most ductwork in Florida is located at an extreme place in the home like the attic or underneath the house. Neither one is a fun place for exploration due to critters, insects, and heat.
