You air ducts are responsible for transporting warm and cool air throughout your home. If there is a hole in the ducts, many problems can develop:
-High energy bills: Hot or cold air that escapes through leaky spots in your air ducts make it so that your system has to exert more energy to heat or cool your home. The leaks have to leak into unconditioned space for this to matter.
*If the conditioned air leaks into the attic than it does not go into the house. If the leaks are within the conditioned space that it does not matter.
-Constant repairs: When your system has to run constantly to make up for air it will require more frequent repairs. Leaks in your system also cause debris build-up (which in turn leads to system breakdowns).
*Leaks on the supply side do not cause any type of debris build-up nor will they cause added repairs
-Air quality issues: Debris, dust and dirt gets sucked up into leaky spaces and is blown out through vents in your home. This leads to dirt and dust accumulating all over your house in addition to a lower quality of fresh air in your home.
*This only happens on the return side of the system
-New air filters are needed constantly: Debris that builds up because of leaks quickly clog your air filters. If you don’t frequently change these filters, you will have poor air quality and high electric bills from a strain on your system to push air with more force through unchanged filters. Frequently changing filters is costly.
*This will only happen if the return side of the system has leaks to the outside of the house or to a utility area which houses a clothes dryer.
-Hot and cold spots in your home: If there is a leak in the air duct in a certain room in your home, that room will feel less warm/cool because the heated/cooled air leaves the duct before it comes out of the vent.
