Your air conditioner’s duct system is also the heart of your home’s cooling system. Without a healthy duct system, you could be wasting money as your air conditioner works harder than it should have to. While you may know the basics of how your air conditioning system works, you may not know as much about the ductwork. Knowing all the components of your HVAC system can help you identify the problems that can arise within them.
As the air in your home constantly circulates through the air ducts of your cooling system, your furnace filter generally catches the dust and debris. But poor duct installation or a series of other causes can lead to buildup, therefore lessening your system’s efficiency. Cleaning the ductwork is recommended to ease airflow, especially if you have fiberglass ducting which gathers more dust.
But how do you know if your HVAC duct system is working properly, especially if you can’t see inside it? A common sign of a problem is a whistling or popping noise. This means the system is working harder than normal, which can then lead to the next sign: a higher energy bill. You can also take a look for dust and debris blowing out of floor registers.
