3 Signs You Need New Ductwork in Colton, CA

When the summer heat arrives in your home in Colton, CA, your air conditioning system becomes your main focus. However, one often ignored aspect of your HVAC system is the ductwork and its importance. Here are some signs that it’s finally time you replace your air ducts.

1. Your Ductwork Is Old

Proper maintenance of your air ducts can ensure it serves you for around 10 years, just like your HVAC system. With time and the workload of your system, the air ducts can wear out joints and seams, and seal points will deteriorate. That leads to, overall, less efficiency of your HVAC system and use of more energy.

2. A Noisy System

The design of modern AC units allows them to make minimal noise during heating, cooling and conditioning operations. However, your ductwork can, at times, produce a vibrating or rattling sound. Such noises signify that an issue lies within the ducts.

Broken parts or loose joints are the most common instigators of these noises. If there are holes in your air duct system, it’ll also make a noise as air passes through. We advise you to call an HVAC expert to repair your air ducts or install a new system.

3. Getting A Dusty or Dirty Home

If your ductwork system has holes, openings, or leaks, it can allow dirt and dust to seep through it. Your ductwork then will spread the dust all over its vents and, at times, into your home. In turn, the dust and foreign air particles reduce your home’s indoor air quality.

Your air ducts are a vital component of your HVAC system and can have massive effects on your indoor air quality. Contact and hire Hush Air Heating & Air Conditioning to check, repair or install ductwork for your HVAC system.
