Get Duct System Design Right the First Time or It Can Haunt You
- September 15, 2013
There’s a lot more to duct system design than meets the eye and, regrettably, poor design and installation can haunt you for years. A duct system, when working properly, conditions and moves air through your house in an efficient and safe manner. A poorly planned or installed duct system design, on the other hand, is a steady drain on resources.
If you are not sure about the quality of the work in your house, it’s important to get it checked out by a professional who can identify and correct any problems.
A qualified professional can tell you a lot about what’s happening in your house. For example, ducts that pass through exterior walls or unconditioned ceiling spaces can be costing you a bundle by bleeding your heat and cool out where it’s not needed. A good tech can move those ducts for you or see that they get the insulation they need to keep those hard earned dollars in your pocket.
Duct system design flaws that let dust and dirt build up in your system not only reduce air flow, they reduce air quality as well and that can lead to health concerns in your home. Getting your ducts cleaned and corrected can not only save you money, it can protect the health of your family.
Even if the design was passable to begin with, it may have degraded over time. We all love duct tape but it does age, if your home builder covered mistakes and gaps with duct tape, what was once an effective system may now be draining your money away. And by the way, beware if a technician repairs your duct system with duct tape; the technician should use mastic or foil-backed tape instead.
