While it’s understandable you want your HVAC system and ductwork to last forever, some equipment will need to be replaced every 10 to 25 years. This includes your ductwork, especially if you’re upgrading to a new HVAC system. Below are five reasons to upgrade your ductwork in your Hobe Sound, FL, home.
More Consistent Temperature
Your ductwork should provide a consistent temperature throughout your home. Old ductwork can have cracks that leak heated or cooled air, which can cause hot and cold spots throughout your home. New ductwork can help keep your home at a consistent temperature.
As time passes, your ductwork starts sagging and bending, causing the air passing through the ducts to generate more noise. New ductwork installed by a professional eliminates this particular problem, so you won’t have to deal with excess noise when you’re trying to relax or hold a conversation.
Higher Energy Efficiency
Ductwork with cracks or holes that leak air and will drag down the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Newer ductwork is far more energy-efficient and helps to keep your utility bills lower. That way, you’re not only comfortable, but you also have more money to save.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Your ductwork runs through walls, ceilings, and crawlspaces to provide heating and cooling throughout your home. If you have dirty ductwork, it impacts the indoor air quality of your home. New ductwork helps your home’s air stay cleaner for a longer period of time.
Longer HVAC Lifespan
While bad ductwork lowers the efficiency of your HVAC system, it also lowers the operational lifespan of your HVAC system. Proper ductwork lessens the wear and tear on your system, which decreases the need for extra maintenance, repairs, or an early replacement of your entire HVAC system.
