If there are any objects blocking your air ducts, the air can’t pass through them at a regular flow rate. This can cause the air to move slowly, letting heat or cold taper off by the time it gets to your home. Obstructions can be foreign objects or they can even be pieces of the air duct that have fallen into the path of the air. Obstructions can be recognized visibly or by the presence of low airflow into your home.
When cracks and holes form in the air duct, air leaks out as it passes by. Tiny holes can be made by insects or other critters calling your attic home. Other factors like age and exposure could lead to leaks in your air ducts too. Our team uses air pressure technology and professional-grade sealant to fill in air duct holes and prevent leaks from occurring.
If the air duct installation team doesn’t measure your airflow correctly, your air ducts might be too small for the amount of air flowing through them. You might notice low airflow or wear and tear on your unit as it tries to force too much air down the air ducts. Our specialists can find the solution that works for your home, including replacements or adjustments to make the air ducts more efficient.
It’s pretty common to hear a low thud when your HVAC system turns on. This is the air duct walls reacting to the sudden flow of air. If you hear loud or more disruptive sounds, your air ducts need to be looked at! Loud noises can indicate obstructions, damage and leaking air. Your best option is to get assistance from a professional.
