Most Common Mistakes
If mistakes are made with installing and maintaining your air ducts, you can pay for it in the long run. Here are some of the most common mistakes.
Failing to Plan
When it comes to almost any home improvement project, failing to plan is a mistake. This includes installing air ducts. You want to make sure every detail is planned out so you don’t run into costly issues.
If your ducts are too large, air can get stuck in your ducts. This wastes energy and decreases your comfort. Ducts that are too small can cause the air to get backed up and impair your HVAC system.
If you place the ducts too close to a poorly insulated exterior wall, basement, or attic, the air in the surrounding area can affect the air temperature in your ducts.
Sharp Bends and Crimping
Similar to air ducts that are too large, sharp bends and crimping can trap air in your air ducts.
If your air ducts are not properly sealed, the conditioned air can leak out and waste energy.
Lack of Return Air Ducts
Return air ducts pull air back into your system to be recirculated. Neglecting to install them can severely affect the airflow in your home.
Over time, dust and other debris will build up in your air ducts. This blocks airflow. Be sure to have your air ducts cleaned every 8-10 years.
