Your HVAC ductwork needs to be in good condition for your heating and air conditioning to heat and cool your home effectively. Damaged, leaky air ducts are the number one source of energy waste in most homes so it’s important to have your ducts inspected regularly and repaired as needed.
Poorly sealed or damaged air ducts are a common problem in most homes. Air leaks are a much bigger problem than you may realize. Statistics show that leaks can easily increase your energy bills by as much as 30%, resulting in your HVAC system being far less energy efficient than it should be. Most ducts will last for around 25 to 30 years and will typically experience more issues with leaks the older they get.
