When Should I Replace Duct Work

air ducts

Although we know our duct work supports our home’s comfort, we tend to forget they exist. Duct work can require attention, maintenance, repairs and sometimes replacement. Most duct work should follow manufacturer’s directions and any work should be performed by an HVAC professional. The condition and age of your existing duct work is an important factor when deciding what your home needs. Understanding these factors is helpful to homeowners, even when working with professionals.

All about duct work

  • Duct work can last about 10 years. If your duct work is older than that; replacement might be needed.
  • If your home is having issues cooling or maintaining a cooler temperature, a professional is needed to inspect the duct work. Although the air filter can be to blame, the duct work is challenging to inspect by a non- professional.
  • Mold is considered a serious issue in duct work. Cleaning is a temporary solution, but replacement is recommended when mold is found in your ducts.
  • Poor design or layout of duct work can cause hot or cold spots in your home. Inspection by a professional can help map out what your home needs in modifying the existing duct work.
