Northeast Florida is known for its warm temperatures, and by providing regular cleaning, repair, and maintenance of your duct system, you will be able to not only maintain air quality but ensure your home stays cool throughout the warm season. If your duct system is exhibiting any of the symptoms mentioned below, it may be time to call in a heating and cooling specialist.
While not all air systems whisper quietly, if your ducts are making loud or consistent noises, it could be a cause for concern. Noises that should be addressed include whistling, banging, and thumping and can be related to a problem with the airflow or pressure in your ducts.
Poor Air Flow
You probably have become used to the amount of air that pumps through the various vents located throughout your house. If any of these vents begin to feel like the air is coming out slower or less forcefully, it may be time to make a call. Poor air flow can signal a number of problems including such concerns as blockages, poor seals, cracks, or tears causing the air to leak out.
Biological Growth, Dust, and Debris
Cool air traveling through a duct on a hot day can result in condensation in the ductwork. While this is normal in hot areas, it can lead to growth of harmful particles; if you see any type of growth in or around your vents, have your ducts cleaned immediately to restore air quality. You may also look at getting your ductwork cleaned if you notice significant amounts of dust in your home. Excess dust not only worsens your air but can damage parts of your system by clogging it.
