When Should Air Ducts Be Replaced?

When Should Air Ducts Be Replaced?

Your central HVAC system relies on a network of air ducts to carry heated and cooled air throughout your home. While practices such as replacing your furnace filter regularly and scheduling air duct cleaners to inspect and clean your ducts every few years will keep ductwork in good shape, your ducts may eventually require replacement for several reasons. If your ducts have developed widespread leaks due to age or damage following a pest or mold infestation, air duct replacement is the best solution for a clean and efficient home. Air ducts made from a material such as fiber board can be difficult or impossible to clean properly and may need replacement following widespread contamination or significant dirt and dust buildup.

Air duct replacement is a significant undertaking, but replacing damaged or contaminated air ducts with new ductwork will improve your home’s energy efficiency and help you more easily maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor environment.
