If your home seems to have some spots that are never the same temperature as the rest of the house, issues with your ductwork may be a possible culprit.
A Classic Aire Care expert can come to your home and inspect your ductwork for issues. Air ducts can function poorly based on several factors: bad design; inadequate insulation and air leaks. These problems all contribute to reduce the amount of conditioned air reach any one spot. Not only that, they can contribute to the air pollution within the residence.
Ducts can become disconnected or develop leaks in many ways. If someone accident bumps ductwork, a seam may be compromised. The sealing tape degrades over time and may allow areas for holes. Therefore, if you’re moving around in your attic, even once in awhile, it is a good idea to have your ductwork inspected if you are seeing issues with heating and cooling.
Consider too if the uncomfortable room is at the other end from your unit, particularly if it is a great distance and there are many twists and turns, your ductwork may be inadequate for the air to go through.
With all this tightening, some wonder the dangers if they make their house too tight. While adequate ventilation is important, many homes, especially older ones, already have many ways air is escaping and there is more than enough adequate ventilation.
