How Duct Leaks Affect Your AC

air-ductsWe would very much like to tell you otherwise, but chances are that you are going to run into problems with your air conditioning system at some point. If and when you do, you really do need to schedule air conditioning repair in Satellite Beach, FL as soon as possible. The summer weather is way too intense around here to invite problems with your air conditioner.

Now, many problems that air conditioners may face can be pretty easy to spot, like if the system isn’t starting up at all. Other issues are not as easy to recognize, but that does not mean that they are any less pressing. If you are using a central air conditioning system or a heat pump, for instance, then you are using air ducts to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. Are you doing so successfully, though?

Not If Your Ducts Are Leaking!

Leaky air ducts are a tricky example of AC problems that are not necessarily obvious. While they can result in many different problems, the average homeowner may not necessarily make the connection between symptoms in the home and leaks in the ducts. So what kinds of problems might you be looking at?

  • Reduced indoor air quality. Your air quality may not be the first thing that you think of when it comes to problems with your air conditioner. If those problems are related to your air ducts, though, then those ducts can pull pollutants into the system and wind up distributing them throughout the house.
  • Increased energy costs. You are going to have to pay to cool your home, obviously. Considering the length and intensity of our cooling season, though, you really do not want to be overpaying to do so. If heat is getting into your ducts through leaks, though, this is a problem that you’ll be going up against.
  • Uneven temperatures. When your air ducts are leaking, the areas affected by those leaks just are not going to be as comfortable as the others throughout your house. Don’t let leaky ductwork leave you paying more for lesser comfort in various areas of your home!
