3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Home’s Ductwork


You depend on your heating and cooling system to deliver comfortable temperatures for your home in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Making sure that your HVAC system and your ductwork are up to the task is essential to promote the greatest comfort for you and your family throughout the year. Here are three clear indications that it may be time to replace your ductwork in our area.

Increasing Heating and Cooling Bills

The U.S Department of Energy cites leaky or misplaced ductwork as one of the most common reasons for higher energy bills. Leaks in your ductwork could potentially cost you hundreds of dollars each year. Sealing, insulating or replacing your ductwork can reduce or eliminate this issue for your North Carolina home.

Lack of Airflow

If your ducts no longer deliver adequate airflow for keeping your home cool during the summer, your air conditioning system may not be to blame. Faulty ductwork and improperly sized vents and ducts can play a big role in restricting airflow inside your home and reducing your level of comfort during the hottest days of the year. Ductwork replacement may be the best option for maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures now and in the future.

Hot Spots and Cold Drafts

Leaks and gaps in your ductwork can make it difficult for your heating and cooling system to provide consistent comfort. Ductwork replacement can eliminate uneven temperatures and can provide you with added confidence that your HVAC system is up to the challenge of keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter in the Outer Banks area. According to the HVAC experts at ENERGY STAR, duct sealing can also be an option for ducts that have developed gaps or leaks over time.
