Every year, Tampa Bay homeowners lose hundreds of dollars thanks to leaking air conditioning ducts. In fact, seven out of ten homes have leaking ducts and lose about 20% of the air that moves through them. That can add up to a whole lot of wasted energy and money. It can also lead to poor indoor air quality. At Oaki-Aire we can identify and seal any leaks that exist in your system. It's just one more way we deliver cooler, cleaner indoor air while saving our customers money. Contact us today to get more details.

Three Problems Associated with Leaky Ducts

Leaks in your ducts may occur for many reasons, including poor initial installation, pest infestations, and wear and tear on the joints and connective materials over time. These leaks can affect your comfort at home and even raise the cost of running your furnace and air conditioning.

  • Leaky ducts invariably cause higher utility bills. This is because a portion of the heated and cooled air produced by your furnace and air conditioner escapes into the empty spaces of your home, such as between walls and floors before it can reach its final destination.

  • Because your HVAC system will run longer and work harder to heat or cool your home to make up for air lost due to leaking ducts, these leaks will also put excess strain on your heating and cooling system and increase the risk of a breakdown or even complete appliance failure.

  • Leaks in your ducts don’t just let air escape—they can also pull air in, as well as dirt, dust, and other airborne contaminants. This causes your home’s indoor air to suffer in terms of quality and also causes your furnace filter to clog more quickly for added HVAC strain.

Air Duct Cleaning vs. Air Duct Replacement

If you are experiencing heating, cooling, or air quality problems associated with problematic ducts, you may wonder whether it’s better to clean your air ducts or replace them. There are several factors that should influence this decision; your HVAC company can help you evaluate your options to choose the right solution for your needs.

  • The majority of air quality concerns can be addressed via air duct cleaning, issues do not always require air duct repair. This process removes built-up dirt, dust, mold, and other materials from your ducts, restoring them to like-new condition for cleaner air and more efficient heating and cooling.

  • Significant damage or mold growth may warrant a replacement of problematic ducts. Ducts that have collapsed should also be replaced to restore proper airflow. Additionally, poor duct design or installation could require your HVAC service to replace the duct system with one that will better meet your needs.

Why do I need air duct cleaning?

During normal operation of your home or office cooling system, dust, pollen, germs, mold spores, pet dander, hair and other pollutants can get drawn into your air ducts. About 95% of these particles can pass through a normal air filter and pass back into the indoor air you breathe. It can also accumulate on the fan blades, grills and other parts of your system reducing air flow by up to 40%.

These irritants can cause allergic reactions in many people and lead to serious health problems for people with asthma, COPD and other respiratory ailments. They can also lead to higher cooling costs and decreased comfort. Regular air duct cleaning by the experts at Oaki-Aire can dramatically reduce the many effects of unwanted pollutants in your home and should be performed every three years if you use normal air filters in your air conditioning and heating system.
