What Does Your Ductwork Do?
- Your ducts move air from the furnace to each room where there is a vent.
- Without ducts, your air would just blow into the attic or your closet and not into individual rooms.
Why Your Ductwork Is Important
Your ductwork is important because it moves the air from your HVAC system to your rooms. The installation of the ductwork keeps the cold air in and the hot attic air out in the summer and keeps hot air in and cold air out in the winter.
Why It Is Important To Have Ductwork Installed Properly
Not having your ductwork installed correctly can cost you not just money but comfort too. Many studies found that not having it installed correctly can drastically reduce efficiency and waste energy. The most common problems are air leaks at the joints and at the ceiling where it connects to the vents.
Incorrectly sized ductwork will cause uneven air distribution, which will cause hot and cold spots throughout your home. Ductwork that is not sized correctly can also cause your system to run longer or shorter which can damage your system. Not having the correctly sized return air (ductwork that sucks in air to the furnace) can damage your equipment, lose efficiency, and not perform properly. Incorrectly sized duct work will lead to higher utility Bills, and expensive repairs or worst case premature replacement of the whole system.
