Deficiencies in the ductwork system are common nuisances that bring about a number of issues in your home or work environment.  If your indoor air quality is worsening while your energy costs skyrocket, your ductwork could be causing the grief.  Here are some common HVAC problems caused by ductwork obstructions.

Poor Air Quality

Leaky ducts cause poor air quality. When you use an HVAC system with leaks, holes or cracks in the ductwork, a variety of contaminants from your attic or crawl space will enter the ducts.  All the debris will release in your home, creating indoor air quality problems.

Hot and Cold Spots

If a duct is blocked, some areas of your home won’t heat or cool as desired.  Since the rooms can’t reach the temperature set on the thermostat, your HVAC system will work harder to keep up.

Poor Airflow

Another consequence of leaky ducts is poor airflow.  The ductwork walls can develop holes or cracks, resulting in reduced airflow.  You can test your ducts yourself by examining your registers and checking the consistency of airflow between each outlet.

Nasty Odors

Moisture, grime, bacteria, and other pollutants can build up over time in your ducts and release undesirable odors.  Duct cleaning can effectively eliminate allergens and build up from the ducts for a cleaner, safer air supply.
