The idea of damaged ductwork can be particularly agitating to homeowners, as there is really no way in which one can hope to thoroughly inspect his or her air ducts visually. After all, much of the ductwork system in any given home is largely hidden from view, installed behind walls, below floors, and in other hard-to-access areas. If you hope to avoid the issues that using damaged air ducts can lead to, there is some good news, though; there are a number of different warning signs which can tip you off to the need for professional duct repair services in Hartford, CT. Contact a member of the Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning team today if you notice any of these indicators in your home.
- High Heating and Cooling Costs: If you use your air ducts in order to distribute both heated and cooled air throughout your home, you may notice a spike in your heating and cooling costs if your air ducts are compromised. After all, all of the air which you pay to condition must travel this circuitous path. If your air ducts are leaking, corroded, or otherwise impaired, then there is just no way in which you can hope to heat and cool your home with the efficiency that you deserve.
- Hot and/or Cold Spots: If you have had your HVAC system in place for some time, and you’ve never experienced problems with uneven heating and/or cooling, only to find that different areas of your home are now less comfortable than others, then damaged ductwork may be to blame. When you run your heater or air conditioner, you need to know that that conditioned air will make it throughout your entire home undisturbed. This is impossible to achieve without ductwork of the highest caliber.
- Hissing or Whistling Sounds: Do you hear odd whistling and/or hissing sounds when heating and/or cooling your home? If so, then it may be the sound of pressurized air escaping from your air ducts. If you hear any such sounds, schedule service with a professional technician on our staff. We will determine with certainty if professional duct repair is necessary in your home.
