The air duct system in your home is a sealed tunneling system that sends the warm or cool air through your entire home. When the air ducts are not properly sealed, much of your warm or cool air will flow through the smallest of leaks. When your air ducts have a leak it is important to detect and look for the leaks and have them resealed. To know if your air duct has a leak, Air Pure Air Duct Cleaning will share symptoms and signs of air duct leaks.
Poor Temperature Regulation
Depending on the season you may find your home HVAC system is having a hard time maintaining a comfortable temperature. When there is nothing wrong with your HVAC system, but yet your home is too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer, this is a sign that your air duct has a leak. Leaks will allow the air from the HVAC to be lost through the leak. Because of this your home is not getting all of the air that your HVAC system is working hard to create. If you find you cannot control your home temperature, have your air ducts inspected for leaks.
A home’s temperature should be mostly the same throughout the entire home. When you have a room or areas in your home that never has the same temperature, you have a temperature imbalance problem. This occurs in the section of the air leading into that room or area has a leak. The air from the HVAC system is being lost just before it enter that room. This make it easier to pin-point where the leak is and to have the air duct leak resealed.
Overworked Air Conditioner & HVAC System
Common signs of an overworked HVAC system is a high utility bill, a tripping circuit breaker, short cycling and overheating. There are many reasons why an HVAC system will be overworked. One of those reasons is air duct leaks. Because most of the air used to control the indoor temperature is lost through the air duct leak, your HVAC system must work harder. If the HVAC system is both mechanically and electrically good, then you most likely have a leak in your air duct system.
Dust & Allergies
When an air duct has a leak often the dust, pollen and other contaminates inside the attic will get sucked through the leak and then circulated throughout the house. When this occurs, your home will be very dusty. Even after cleaning your home, you will notice a fresh layer of dust within the day. You indoor air will also be polluted which may trigger allergies and affect those with respiratory problems. When your home is constantly dusty and the household is suffering due to the quality of the indoor air, you probably have a leak in your air ducts.
