6 Signs You May Need Air Duct Repair

Here are six common indicators of issues with your ductwork.

Dirty Air Vents

Dust and dirt around air vents indicates a filtration problem in the duct system. As the cooled or warmed air blows through the vents, dirt, lint, pet hair, etc. is left behind, and this buildup develops slowly over time.

Noisy Ductwork

If there is an unusual vibrating sound or loud metallic clanging sound coming from your HVAC system, this is a sign your AC is working harder than it should be and something is wrong.

Poor Airflow

If your HVAC system is running but there’s poor airflow, you may have cracks, tears, poor sealing, or another issue with your ductwork, allowing air to leak. There will be less air flowing from the vents and less air circulating throughout your home—20 to 40% of the air circulating through leaking ducts will be lost. This causes major inefficiency and requires AC duct repair.

Poorly sealed registers at the duct connection cause air to escape and allow in pests, small animals, and debris.

If you have flexible ductwork, make sure there are no kinks, twists, or other obstructions restricting airflow. Flexible ducts can get crushed, leading to significant air circulation issues.

Some Rooms Are Warmer or Cooler

If the temperature of your home varies widely from room to room and one warm is significantly warmer or cooler than others, a duct may be blocked, torn, or otherwise damaged.

Poor insulation around ducts can result in heat gain or loss, decreasing the efficiency of your HVAC system.

Mold & Mildew Odor

A poorly insulated duct or bad connection can lead to uneven temperatures and condensation in ductwork, allowing mold and mildew to grow. If this happens, you’ll smell a musty odor as air blows from your vents.

Frequent Filter Changes

Your AC or furnace filter should last one to two months. It can clog up sooner if you have pets or excessive dust, but this might also mean that there’s excess dust and dirt in your ductwork.
