How To Determine If Your Duct Work Needs To Be Repaired

In order to ensure that your home will continue to stay nice and warm throughout the winter months, you will want to be well aware of any signs that there could be an issue with the duct work that is hidden behind the walls. To help you with this, you will want to take a few minutes to read through the following signs of duct work trouble.

One Room Is Colder Than The Rest

Do you have a room or two that seems to be having a little bit of trouble getting as warm as the rest of the house, no matter how high you set the thermostat? It could be that there is a section of damaged duct work that leads to that section of the house. Of course, since duct work is hidden behind the walls, this is not something that you will be able to confirm on your own without conducting a lot of demolition of your walls. Therefore, you will need to schedule an appointment with an HVAC technician who can send a microscopic camera through your duct work. He or she will determine if there is a problem and where the exact location is. This way, when it is time to take out a section of the wall for duct work repairs, the damages can be contained to the smallest area possible.

You Hear It Make Noise

You should never hear the sound of your metal duct work making any noise when you have the heat on. Even though the metal may expand and contract depending on the current temperature, it is nothing that should be noticeable to you. However, if there is a piece of duct work that is starting to disconnect from the other pieces, the forced air may be putting pressure on it and causing it to physically move a little and that is what is causing the sound. Therefore, if you are starting to hear sounds coming from the duct work, it is important to make sure that you call an HVAC specialist who will be able to check it out for you.

With just those two signs that your duct work is in need of repairs, you should have little trouble determining when it is time to contact an HVAC company like Jess Kerley Heating and Air Electrical in your area. Just make sure that you call for the appointment as soon as possible, as many HVAC technicians can get very busy during the winter months.
