How to Prevent Air Duct Leaks

The air ducts are one of the most important components of your central air conditioning system. These represent the travel system that allows the air from the central unit to be carried throughout the home, to cool it adequately. If these air ducts end up with a leak or multiple leaks, it can result in lost air flow to the home, wasted energy, and an inefficient system overall. It is important as part of your air conditioning Nocatee FL maintenance steps to work and prevent air duct leaks at all costs.

Regular Inspections

One of the best ways to prevent air duct leaks is to have them regularly inspected directly. When you reach out to us at J&W Heating and Air, one of the things that we always stress is the importance of annual inspections and tune-ups. We want to come out to the home and check out the air ducts, see all of the components of the system so we can be sure it is all operating the way it should.

Regular inspections can help to identify signs of wear and tear on the air ducts. It may not be that there is a leak that has formed, but it could happen based on the state of the duct. When we can inspect them regularly, we will work to identify such signs of wear. We can work to address these concerns before a leak ever occurs originally.

Air Duct Cleaning

Air duct cleaning is another important piece to the puzzle here. When you clean your air ducts, you are going to be accomplishing a few things. First, you will be working to keep the air quality of the home as highs possible. Second, you will be protecting the air ducts from leakage. When dirt and debris get up in the air ducts, with the air blowing through, there is a chance that these items can wear down the ducts and eventually puncture them. The result is a leak in one or multiple air ducts throughout the home.

Changing of the Air Filter

You also want to be changing out the air filter regularly. A quality air filter is going to lead to cleaner air ducts. The air filter goes hand in hand with duct cleaning. You can clean the air ducts all that you want, but when you have a weak air filter that leads to them, you are going to result in more dirt and debris building up faster. Swap that out regularly so that you can work to prevent air duct leaks from forming.

Keep the Ducts Open

Make sure you also have your air ducts open at all times. When air ducts are closed at the registers, then the backed up air can lead to pressure on the ducts, which can cause leakage.

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
