Why Duct Replacement Is Necessary?

The tubes that distribute warm or cooled air throughout your house are called ducts. Ducts can develop degradation, leaks, or obstructions over time. These flaws can lead to several issues:

Your HVAC system will function better overall if your outdated or broken ducts are replaced.

Signs You Need Duct Replacement

How do you know if it’s time to replace your ducts? Common signs include high energy bills, which may indicate air leaks reducing efficiency, and uneven temperatures in different rooms, suggesting duct problems. Strange noises such as rattling, whistling, or banging can also point to duct issues. Visible damage like cracks, holes, or rust signals the need for replacement. Additionally, ducts typically last 15–20 years, so if yours are older, it might be time for an upgrade.

Expert Duct Replacement Process 

The BBB-certified experts from Riverside Heating & Air Conditioning follow a comprehensive duct replacement process when your older duct is not properly working or has stopped. The steps are mentioned below:

  1. Initial Assessment: Upon your call, our technician inspects your current ductwork to identify problems and determine the best course of action.
  2. Design and Planning: The technician designs a new duct system tailored to your home’s layout and HVAC needs.
  3. Removal of Old Ducts: The old, damaged ductwork is carefully removed to make way for the new system.
  4. Installation of New Ducts: New ducts are installed using high-quality materials and precise techniques to ensure a perfect fit and ideal performance.
  5. Sealing and Insulation: All joints and connections are sealed to prevent air leaks, and the ducts are insulated to improve energy efficiency.
  6. Testing and Balancing: The entire system is tested to ensure proper airflow and balanced distribution of heated or cooled air.
  7. Final Inspection: A thorough inspection is conducted to ensure the new ducts meet all standards and provide the expected results.

Environmental Impact of Duct Replacement

When you replace old, inefficient ductwork with new, energy-efficient ducts, it has a positive impact on the environment. This is because it reduces energy consumption, helps your HVAC system operate more efficiently, and lowers your carbon footprint. In addition, clean ducts mean fewer pollutants circulating in your home, contributing to a healthier indoor environment. Many modern ducts are also made from sustainable, eco-friendly materials, further minimizing environmental impact.

The Role of Insulation in Duct Replacement

Insulating your ductwork is vital for maintaining energy efficiency. When replacing ducts, it's important to install insulation to keep the air warm as it passes through your HVAC system. By preventing heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, it improves energy efficiency and lowers utility costs. Insulated ducts also help to prevent condensation, reducing the possibility of mold formation and enhancing air quality. In addition, insulation reduces noise from the expansion and contraction of air ducts, making for a quieter home. 

How Often Should Ductwork Be Replaced?

Ductwork generally has a lifespan of 15-20 years, but it should undergo regular inspections for signs of wear and tear. If you observe higher energy bills, uneven temperatures, strange noises, visible damage, or declining air quality, it may be time for a replacement, even if the ducts are within this age range. Regular maintenance can prolong the life of your ductwork, but replacing it when necessary ensures the highest efficiency, comfort, and air quality in your home.
