What is Ductwork?
Ductwork can be described as straws; it carries air from one location to another (for instance, from your AC blower to the inside of your house). Ductwork is generally comprised of pre-insulated fiberglass duct board or malleable plastic however, it could also be constructed from ductwork made of sheet metal (a pipe made of sheet metal) that is then insulated after it has been installed.
Common ductwork problems
- The ductwork that is aging may start to break down. Depending on the type of ductwork that is in your home, after typically 10 or more years the outer liner will begin or begin to fall apart and the insulation is removed. If this happens in an attic temperature of more than 100 degrees and the temperature in the attic could be 10 to 15 degrees higher when it is in the house and can result in an increase in heating and cooling costs of between 40 and 60 percentage. To address this problem, all damaged or damaged ductwork should be replaced.
- Leaks in the air ducts are a result of when duct sealants that are old begin to fail or the installer was not able to protect the ductwork.
- Rodents, like squirrels and rats, can cause damage to the ductwork when they search for a cozy nest in the Texas hot weather. You may want to look at your attic for rodents if you’ve experienced an earlier rodent issue.
A few of the most common reasons for duct issues
The cooling and heating systems that are duct-connected are constructed in that they’re concealed and out of our view, therefore when they need to be repaired We don’t notice it when the air conditioning is very poor.
A large number of heating systems ducted as well as air conditioning have problems and cause issues over time. Many of these issues result from rats or possums and other animals. They chew through the ductwork, hoping to find an enchanted and safe place to live and leave the AC pipes damaged. They aren’t visible however, you may detect them or smell the odor.
The damage done by possums is extensive and extensive. Typically the majority of AC ducts require replacement. Springtown’s Best AC & Heating Repairs by Abundant Air LLC team of duct repairers specializes in identifying the causes of these issues and providing solutions to solve these issues.
Other animals, like cats, dogs, wombats, too, are also able to settle in the ducts to warm themselves which leaves the AC pipes damaged and limits the flow of air.
Certain ductwork systems are damaged because of flooding. When water is able to get inside the AC ducts, the water can stay for a prolonged period of time, which causes the ducts to shrink and then be damaged. In some instances, people enter the ductwork, causing them to break and cause damage to the ducts. Sometimes it’s due to inadequate installation or due to being unable to access the air conditioning vents being far away from the heating unit, it is difficult to get airflow in particular areas of the home.
