What You Should Know About Your Ductwork

Ductwork Plays a Major Role in Your HVAC System’s Performance

If your HVAC system isn’t performing up to your expectations, there could be many causes. However, ductwork is often the unknown culprit. The ductwork in our homes and buildings takes the air and pushes it from the source to the destination. Along the way, it flows to the areas intended, and it delivers air to its destination. The problem comes in when we make changes to the external parts of the system or the living area, causing a change in the delicate balance that the ductwork serves.

The Changes That Occur When the Ductwork Loses Its Balance

When we do something as simple as closing off a few vents in rooms that aren’t in use, the HVAC system can be thrown off and have to work harder to compensate for the change. Unfortunately, the only result is detriment rather than benefit. Higher utility bills, rooms not being adequately served, and strain on the HVAC unit are all common problems.

How to Resolve These Issues

Addressing the ductwork before our HVAC has a breakdown or before your utility bills skyrocket is ideal. A humid summer without air conditioning is unpleasant, and it can lead to serious health problems within the home. This is especially true if it starts forming in your ductwork. Ductless systems, zoned HVAC, and changes to ductwork are all simple solutions that are easy to implement with Cooper Heating & Cooling at your service.
