When your heater is at full blast, do you feel the heat coming from every vent in your house? Yes, we said every vent, not just some of the vents. The truth is that ductwork in a lot of older homes is not in the best shape, and this blog post is about what can potentially go wrong with leaving your air ducts unaddressed.
Many homeowners believe that the culprit to their heating woes is either their heating system, or their home itself, but they rarely point fingers at the possible culprit of their ductwork. Air duct services in Brampton are necessary for a variety of reasons. Contaminants can get cycled through your air ducts and your vents, and your heating can start to suffer when you’re neglecting one of the most integral parts of the whole ecosystem in your house!
What Can Go Wrong With Ducts in Bad Shape?
When your ducts are in bad shape, air that’s heated in the winter or conditioned during the summer can have a rough time getting to the areas where you actually feel it. Air ducts run through basements, attics, and crawlspaces, even in between walls, which means that any leak, gap, or tear in the ductwork could see the valuable air you’re paying to have created get shoved somewhere you won’t feel it. This is not good for obvious reasons.
For starters, it’s expensive. Having ductwork in disrepair can cost a lot of money both on high utility bills as you constantly churn up your heat because you can’t feel it in the winter. But it can also be expensive as you pay for tissues, medicine, and other things to deal with your poor air quality since contaminants will be leaking into and out of your ducts throughout your home.
