Is Your Property’s Duct Work Leaking Air?Posted by February 2nd, 2015
If your duct work is leaking air as it attempts to distribute hot air throughout your building, you are likely paying too much to heat your property. Additionally, leaks within your duct work can indicate that there is a problem with your overall HVAC system. If you aren’t sure whether you should call us to come take care of a leaking duct system, watch out for the following signs:
- Some rooms in your building are too cold, while others seem to get too hot when the heater is on. The most common reason for inconsistent heating is that there is a leak in your duct work that prohibits warm air from reaching certain rooms.
- You and your employees find that it is difficult to breathe while you are in the building. Often, a bad connection within your duct system will allow the air from the outside to mix with the clean air produced by your HVAC system, causing respiratory issues.
- You find excessive amounts of dust and debris within your building. When there is a leak in your duct work, not only is unclean air from the outside allowed inside, but dust and other contaminants find their way into your building’s interior, as well.
If you notice that any of these signs are present, it’s essential that you give us a call at Cynergy Mechanical Ltd. right away for service. Not only will your heating bills likely decrease, but the air quality within your building will also dramatically improve.
