Trouble Heating or Cooling Your Home Evenly
Are you perfectly comfortable in your living room, only to enter your bedroom and feel anything but? It could be due to air leaks in the ductwork servicing that area of the house. If air is leaking out of your air ducts, you really don’t know precisely where it is going to end up; it will not be, though, where it ought to be.
Inexplicably High Heating and Cooling Costs
Have you noticed that your heating and cooling costs have spiked, despite the fact that you have not been using your HVAC system in an abnormal manner? It too could indicate that you have leaky ductwork. While the conditioned air distributed by the system will wind up somewhere, it is not guaranteed to wind up where it should be. This can lead your HVAC system to work overtime as it tries to sufficiently heat or cool areas affected by air leaks.
Odd Hissing Sounds When Running Your System
Don’t ignore strange hissing sounds coming from your HVAC system when it is running. Yes, your heater and/or air conditioner is going to make some noise as it operates. However, this hissing sound can actually be the sound of air actively escaping your ductwork. The only way to be sure if your air ducts are compromised is to schedule professional duct testing services.
