Indoor Air Quality
Duct Repair and Replacement Services in Joliet, IL
The ductwork in a home is a crucial part of its HVAC system. After all, it’s what the letter “V” in “HVAC” stands for. Unfortunately, many people take for granted that the ducts that run out of sight through the walls and ceilings are well-designed and in the best possible shape. This isn’t always true, however. Damaged and badly-designed ducts can create a ventilation system that is inefficient and creates numerous problems for heating, cooling, and even indoor air quality.

Do You Need Duct Repair or Replacement Services?
Modern duct designs are too often second–rate, with the ductwork passing through areas of the house that have poor insulation, or air ducts with too many bends that place strain against airflow. It doesn’t take much for a set of ducts to create undue stress on the distribution of air around a house, and this not only means less comfort from the heating and air conditioning system, but also higher energy bills.
When ducts start to deteriorate or develop leaks, these problems will become even worse. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that up to 30% of the air inside a ventilation system can escape through air leaks. That adds up to a large loss of heated and cooled air and a huge spike in utility bills. Whether you have broken ducts or badly designed ones, you’ll need to have them fixed.
Signs That You Need Duct Repairs or Replacement
A home that feels stuffy no matter how often you run the AC often indicates that air isn’t being properly distributed around the rooms. This can point to a bad duct system or leaks. Unexplained increases in your heating and cooling bills are often warnings that there are leaks or ducts that have come loose.
If the ducts are actually starting to fall apart, you’ll begin to hear rattling and rumbling sounds from the vents whenever the HVAC system comes on. When the ductwork has reached that level of damage, it’s probably best to have the ducts replaced rather than repaired.
