If you’re concerned about saving the environment or about saving your budget, finding as many ways as possible to reduce energy consumption in your home is very much worth the effort for a lot of reasons. But did you know that one of the hidden ways your home could be wasting energy is through aging ductwork? While energy-efficient HVAC systems are a fantastic way to boost your home’s efficiency, some of those advantages could be going to waste if you’re relying on aging ductwork.
Depending on the quality of the ducts that were installed and how well they were maintained, the ductwork’s condition for its age can vary greatly from one home to the next. Here are a few signs that indicate potential problems.
If you check your ducts yourself and notice the problem signs we mentioned, or you’re uncomfortable checking things for yourself and suspect your home might be suffering from aging ductwork, call a trustworthy HVAC tech. A professional can inspect your ductwork and give you additional information if repairs or replacement are in order.
