Your home’s ductwork is a vital and often overlooked component of the HVAC system that is vital to its chances of running efficiently. Without a properly installed, well-maintained duct system, the rest of the system could be running in unison to create perfectly conditioned air — only for it to be lost in your attic thanks to flaws in your ductwork.

Ductwork is fairly simple by design. Its job of providing a sealed pathway between the air handler and the rooms of your home is simple in conception but difficult to execute perfectly. There is nothing complicated about providing a pathway for air. However, keeping conditioned air from escaping is far more complicated and requires the hands of a skilled professional.
Fortunately, the simple design of ductwork means that there are only so many things that can go wrong with it, and our technicians have seen them all. Here is a list of some of the most common ductwork issues we find ourselves dealing with in the field.
One of the most common issues that affect the efficiency of ductwork is the unchecked accumulation of dirt and debris. These obstructions in your system can greatly impact the airflow, lowering the overall efficiency. Additionally, microscopic particles can be picked up by the natural airflow of your system and end up inside your home. This can lead to faster dust accumulation and even possible negative health impacts.
To combat this, it’s recommended that your ductwork be professionally cleaned at least once every 3-5 years, a service that we are proud to offer in our multi-level membership.
The design and layout choice of your ductwork has a big impact on its overall efficiency. Every foot of ductwork represents a possible spot where efficiency loss can occur. This means that it is vital that ductwork be installed in a way that is as direct and efficient as possible to minimize these losses.
Additionally, ductwork that is poorly installed with little attention given to the seals and joints is almost guaranteed to create points of lowered efficiency due to air loss. Sometimes, the best way to repair an air duct issue is to redesign the layout and reseal the joints.
As important as the ductwork itself are the vents and registers that the ductwork is attached to. If the seals at these points are improperly installed or damaged they can create a large point of efficiency loss.
The average ductwork system will last a homeowner between 15 and 20 years depending on use conditions and the level of maintenance it received over its lifetime. Like everything, ductwork will age and eventually become worn out beyond repair and will need to be replaced.
