Top 3 Reasons to Change Your Ductwork.

Posted May 16, 2018 By Brian Nagle

 Top 3 Reasons to Change Your Ductwork when you replace your HVAC Mechanical System

1) Old Ductwork The ductwork in most homes lasts between 15-20 years before significant leaks or air gaps occur.  

2) Poor performance of the Existing System. Your system is getting older, tired, and with more gaps in the ductwork, diminishing performance. You might see increasing utility use month after month, resulting in higher utility bills. An HVAC professional can run a test to find any problems. If the leaks are small enough, you can have your ductwork sealed to save energy. Otherwise, you should have it replaced to keep your power bills affordable. If your ductwork is 10-15 years old, it may be an R4 insulation covering. In our area today’s standard’s are R8 in non-conditioned space (attic or crawl space).

3) Poor Indoor Air Quality IAQ Leaky ducts suck in dust, pollen, and other pollutants from the environment and circulate them in the entire house. These allergens can cause several health problems. Moisture in ductwork can grow into mold, or leak water potentially causing further damage to your house.  True Mechanical Corp can help you with new installations, replacements and servicing of both your systems and ductwork.
