How Your Air Ducts Impact the Performance of Your AC

The majority of homeowners utilizing whole-house cooling systems in Fresno, CA rely on air ducts in order to distribute cooled air throughout their homes. When your ductwork is in great working order, this is a very effective and reliable manner of doing so. However, there are problems which may develop with your ductwork which can negatively impact the operation of your air conditioning system. Our technicians have the tools and experience they need to help your air conditioner to overcome any such issues. If you have reason to suspect that your air ducts are impeding the overall performance of your residential cooling system, just let us know. Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning is here to help you get a better performance from your air ducts and your air conditioning system as a whole.

Signs of Trouble with Your Ductwork

While your air ducts are mostly hidden from view, this does not mean that there is no way in which to ascertain that they are compromised. You may not be able to see the tears or the disconnected seals plaguing your air ducts, but you can notice the effects that such issues have on them, so long as you know what it is that you are looking for. A decline in indoor air quality, the result of pollutants making their way into your ductwork, is one common indicator that your ducts are compromised. You may also see a spike in your heating and cooling costs, as conditioned air escapes your air ducts and your system is forced to work overtime in order to compensate. Any such issues should be assessed by a trained professional as soon as possible.

Resolving Issues with Your Air Ducts

Because leaky air ducts will lead to higher cooling costs, a drop in performance quality, and unnecessary strain on your home cooling system, it is in your best interest – and that of your air conditioner – to have your ductwork serviced as soon as possible.
