Coral Gables is not an area where you are okay being without air conditioning in your home. It’s just really not an option, especially during summer. So when something goes wrong with your air conditioner, you can’t ignore it. Instead, you need to reach out for professional service as soon as you can. But in some of these cases, you’ll need to reach out for ductwork services in Coral Gables rather than air conditioning repairs.
But wait, what does your ductwork have to do with keeping your home cool? Your ducts don’t produce cool air the way your actual AC system does so you shouldn’t need to worry about them right? Well, while your ducts don’t create the cold air you need, they are responsible for delivering it to the rooms in your home. And when something goes wrong with your ducts, it will have a major impact on your comfort.
What Your Ducts Do for Your Home Comfort
We want to start here because, as a homeowner, you deserve to understand what the role of your ductwork is. After all, without them, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy a cool home in summer, nor a warm home in winter either. Think of your ductwork like the delivery system for your air conditioner–without your ducts, your AC can work as hard as possible but that cool air won’t go anywhere. There will be similar trouble if your ductwork is in poor condition.
What Might Be Wrong With Your Ducts
At this point, you are likely wondering what can go wrong with your ductwork if it is tucked safely away in your walls or crawlspace, out of harm’s way. It’s not like your ducts can get whacked by a branch the way your condenser unit can. However, there are still things that can go wrong with your ductwork and it is important to know how to figure out when something is wrong so you can have it repaired.
- Your ducts are dirty. Your air conditioner is built to keep dust and debris out of its internal workings. However, there are still going to be contaminants that make their way into the system and the ducts as well. Over time, your ducts are going to collect a noticeable layer of dust and debris. While dust may not seem like a big deal, even a small layer can hinder the flow of air into your home, along with lowering your indoor air quality.
- Your ducts are worn down. Your ductwork is going to wear out the same way that any other part of your HVAC system would. Age and regular use throughout the year will take its toll on your ductwork. Similarly, so will poor installation. Whether you are dealing with poorly installed ductwork or ducts that have simply reached the end of their lifespan, we can help with duct replacement.
