One of the Most Forgotten Causes of Energy Inefficiency

As alluded to earlier, your air ducts are key to maintaining heating and cooling efficiency in your Glenview-area home. The average home loses a lot of the treated air that travels through it to holes in the ductwork. These same gaps also allow dust and other unwanted contaminants to get sucked into your home. Studies show that damaged or poorly designed ductwork can be the biggest cause of energy loss in the home. And, every time you look at your gas or electrical bill, you’re seeing the results.

If you’re looking to spend less on cooling and heating your home, you should give our Glenview-area HVAC company a call. While at your home, we’ll inspect your ducts for any signs of damage. Then, we’ll seal or insulate them. This will prevent most air loss. If the issue isn’t something that can be easily fixed, we may suggest new duct installation.

Symptoms of a Ductwork Problem in Glenview

It’s pretty apparent when your furnace or air conditioner needs repair. Your home is suddenly chilly or sweltering. The familiar hum of your unit has stopped, slowed, or fallen out of rhythm. The signs of a ductwork issue are often much more subtle.

  • High Utility Bills: If your ducts have major leaks and lose large amounts of air. This typically translates into huge spikes in heating and air conditioning bills—especially if your ductwork is run in your attic or crawlspace. So, instead of paying more for less comfort, call Effective Air for a ductwork inspection.
  • Rattling and Squeaking: Loose ductwork will rattle and squeak when your HVAC system turns on. As time passes, these noises will grow louder and more apparent. An HVAC company local to the Glenview area can often tighten these loose sections and make uninterrupted shuteye a little easier.
  • Pest Infestations: Holes in your ducting provide shelter for squirrels, rats, insects, and other pests. Signs of their presence include an increase in rodent droppings and the smell of urine or feces coming from your ductwork. Before getting the ducting repaired, however, you’ll want to call in a pest control expert.
  • Mildew or Mold: Where you find excess moisture, you’ll find mildew and mold. If you notice a moldy odor when you flip on your furnace or AC, you might have leaks in your return air ductwork or poorly insulated ducts. Breathing in these contaminants can lead to respiratory issues and exacerbate things like asthma.
  • Low Air Flow: The treated air from your HVAC system flows out any gaps or holes in your ductwork. This results in lowered air pressure and can turn the air coming from your vents to a trickle. If you notice hot or cold spots in your home in , give us a call to see if bad ductwork is to blame.
