What are common ductwork problems?
The ductwork in your home is extremely important. They bring heated or cooled air to each room of your house, which ensures it stays at the right temperature. Unfortunately, ducts are not infallible. Sometimes there are problems. That is why 20%-30% of a home’s air is lost from the ductwork.
Some common ductwork problems include the following.
Do you have to replace all the ductwork at once?
It depends on the problem with your ducts. If there are just a few sections of the ductwork affected, then an entire replacement may not be necessary. However, if the ductwork is the wrong size or has too much damage, it may need to be completely replaced.
Duct replacement is a more expensive proposition than duct repair. However, replacement will ensure that your ducts are as efficient and effective as possible. So it may cost you less money in the long run.
