Problems Caused By Your Air Ducts

Central air can keep you and your family comfortable year round and help keep your energy bills low when used and maintained properly. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its drawbacks. When you have central air, you also have air ducts and the problems that can come along with them.

While we don’t want to steer you away from the joy that is central air, you need to be aware of the problems that can be caused by your air ducts.

Air Leaks

Do you ever notice that some areas of your home are warmer or cooler than others? When you have central air, that is likely caused by cracks or holes in your ducts. Not only can air leaks create uncomfortable environments, but they can also lead to a spike in your utility bills since your heating and cooling system will have to work harder to make up for the air that is being lost.

Poor Air Quality

With all the air being pushed and pulled through the ducts in your home, it's no surprise that dust, bacteria, and other harmful particles in your air get pulled into them as well. If those substances stay in your ducts, you could be breathing them in every time your heating and cooling system cycles on.

Odors

Especially in our humid Florida weather, excess moisture can allow mold and mildew to develop inside your air ducts and cause some funky smells to be pushed through your home.

 

The best way to keep your air ducts in good condition and avoid any potential problems if by having them professionally cleaned regularly.

The professionals at Ace Solves It All can keep your ducts clean year-round to give your home efficient heating and cooling and better indoor air quality.
