"Keeping the Northern Palm Beaches Cool for over 15 years."

If you want to explain the ductwork of an HVAC system to an end user, it will make sense if you compare it to the human body.

Think of the HVAC system as the human brain and the ductwork as the veins and arteries that supply blood to and from the heart. The same as the human body, the ductwork is made up of both return and supply ducts. Make sense? Ductwork is essentially used to move air.

When we refer to the ductwork of an HVAC system, we refer to the ductwork’s ability to bring air that is unconditioned into your home so that it can be conditioned in the furnace. The supply air ducts are then able to send the air that has been conditioned into the house.

Ductwork plays an integral part in keeping your home temperature comfortable and an HVAC system is not able to work efficiently without an adequately installed ductwork system.

The Importance of Ductwork for Your HVAC System

Ductwork comes in various shapes such as round, oval, rectangular, and cross-sectional and is made from a range of metals, fiberglass, or plastics.

How do you know if the ductwork in your home has been installed correctly?

Your Home is Always Comfortable!

Is this not why you purchased an HVAC system in the first place? You want your home to be inviting and comfortable. Having the correct amount of working ductwork in your home will eliminate any inconsistent temperatures in the home and always keep it cool and comfortable.

Better Circulation

A good ductwork system will ensure that the air circulating in your home stays clean and free of germs. Better circulation eliminates hazards and prolongs the life of your HVAC unit.

The Common Causes of Ductwork Problems

Badly installed ductwork can cause your HVAC unit to work harder than it should and result in an uncomfortable temperature in the home. It can also cause your HVAC unit to have a lower life span.

Leaky ducts

It is important to check to see if the ductwork in your home is sealed properly as this can cause a significant loss of conditioned air to enter your home.

Pest Damage

Unfortunately, the ductwork in your home can be damaged by insects and other critters which can reduce the quality of the conditioned air flowing into your home.

Twisted or Torn Flexible ducts

Sometimes flexible plastics that have been used for ductwork can cause restrictions in airflow if they have been twisted or torn. This will cause the HVAC system to have to use an overflow of effort to cool down the home. It is important to check this style of ductwork regularly.

Ductwork Not Properly Installed or Insulated

Unfortunately, if ductwork has not been properly installed it is extremely hard for your HVAC system to effectively cool down your home.

If the ducts in your home are not insulated properly then heated air will be lost in Winter and cooled air will be sparse in the hot summer months.

Dirty Air Ducts

Air ducts need to be inspected regularly by a professional who will be able to inspect for any contamination and clean out the air ducts if needed.

Germs, mildew, pollen, and dirt can easily be spread through the home if the air ducts are dirty.
