Air Duct Repair

Common Air Duct Repairs

Air ducts are designed to transport temperature-controlled air throughout our houses. Unfortunately, a problem with your air ducts could allow that precious air to escape or create uneven temperatures in the home. In turn, your spending more money on energy costs than you should. Determining what the problem is with your air ducts can be difficult since many are hidden in your walls and ceilings.

All Day Air Duct Cleaning & Dryer Vent Cleaning can help you discover the issue with your air ducts. We have the tools and knowledge needed to identify the types of air duct repairs necessary. There are several different types of repairs we can perform on your ducts, many of which are common in households. Here are the types of duct repairs our team can perform:

  • Inadequately insulated ducts
  • Leaks through cracks, holes, or tears
  • Wrong size ducts
  • Age
  • Unbalanced airflow
  • Loose joints or connections

The Importance of Air Duct Repairs

If you fail to address the aforementioned problems with your air ducts, you could expect a serious problem in the future. Your home will be unable to cool or heat your home adequately. Your utility bill will increase, and your home will have a harder time maintaining the requested temperature. Essentially, you’ll lose more and more money the longer your air duct repairs are not made.

Increased Indoor Air Pollution

Not only will your utility bill go through the roof, but your air ducts will carry indoor air pollution throughout your home. Cracks, tears, or openings in your ductwork will allow dust, dirt, and other contaminants into the system. The air will transport these pollutants throughout the house, potentially causing short-term health conditions.

Signs of Needing Air Duct Repairs

You can’t maintain your air ducts unless you know they require repairs. Fortunately, there are signs you can look for that may prompt an air duct repair. Another source could cause these signs, but it never hurts to check if your ducts are to blame.

Here are some noticeable signs of needing an air duct repair:

  • Certain rooms are too cold or too hot
  • Higher utility bills
  • Lack of airflow from vents
  • Air filter needs replaced more often
  • Visible damage to ducts
  • Presence of insects or rodents in the ducts

These signs should prompt you to contact All Day Air Duct Cleaning & Dryer Vent Cleaning for repair service. We’ll inspect your ducts and provide you with the right solution for the problem.

How to Inspect Your Own Air Ducts

While you won’t be able to perform a complete inspection on the ducts yourself, you can examine some areas yourself. Start by examining your registers or vent covers. Examine them closely to see if any dust or particles are exiting with the flow of air. If you see nothing, grab a screwdriver and your phone. Take a few pictures of the inside of the duct with the flash.

Another way of inspecting your ducts is to visit the attic. Look for any kind of openings in the ductwork. You should be able to locate various ducts that lead to different parts of the house. Damage such as rips, tears, and crushed portions are some signs you are looking for.

Types of Air Ducts We Repair

You shouldn’t worry about the type of air ducts your home is equipped with. All Day Air Duct Cleaning & Dryer Vent Cleaning is happy to provide repair services for all types of air ducts. In some cases, the type of air duct you have could be the cause of your problems. Not all air duct materials are made equally, so switching materials may help you maintain your indoor air quality.

The types of air ducts we repair include:

  • Flexible ductwork
  • Rigid ductwork
  • Sheet metal ducts
  • Fiberglass-lined ducts
  • Fiberboard ducts

Out of all these materials, sheet metal is the most popular and recommended option for homeowners. Sheet metal resists the growth of mold and other organisms, so you don’t have to worry about what might be lurking in your ductwork.

Why do air ducts need insulated?

Air ducts require insulation to ensure the air traveling inside remains at the desired temperature. A lack of insulation will cause the air to heat up or cold down creating an undesirable condition throughout the home.

Can I perform my own air duct repairs?

Yes, but for basic repairs only. Air leaks, sealing, and ductwork kinks are just a few common repairs you can perform yourself. Major replacements or problems associated with the central HVAC system should be handled by professionals.

How long do air ducts last?

Most homes require ductwork replacements every 10 to 15 years. Air ducts that are older than 15 likely have problems such as gaps, leaks, and damaged sections. Have your air ducts inspected and cleaned on a regular basis to keep them in working order.
