What is Ductwork?
Ductwork is similar to straws; it carries air from one location to another (for instance, from your AC blower to the inside of your house). Ductwork is typically comprised of pre-insulated fiberglass duct board, or malleable plastic however, it could also be constructed from ductwork made of sheet metal (a pipe made of sheet metal) that is then insulated after it has been installed.

Common ductwork problems
- The ductwork that is aging may be beginning to deteriorate. Depending on the type of ductwork that is in your home, over typically between 10 and 10 years the outer liner begins or is beginning to break down and the insulation begins to fall off. If this happens in an attic that is over 100 degrees it could mean that the temperature of the air will be 10-15 degrees warmer when it enters your home and can result in an increase in heating and cooling costs of between 40 and 60 percentage. To address this problem, all damaged or damaged ductwork should be replaced.
- Leaks in the air ducts occur when duct sealants that are old begin to fail or the contractor who installed it didn’t properly protect the ductwork.
- Rodents, like squirrels and rats, can also damage the ductwork while searching for a nest that is cool in the Texas hot weather. It is a good idea to inspect your attic if there was previously encountered rodent problems.
One of the primary reasons for duct issues
Ducted cooling and heating systems are set up in that they’re concealed and out of our view, therefore when they need to be repaired We don’t notice it when the air conditioning is very poor.
A large number of heating systems that are ducted and air conditioning have problems and create issues over time. Many of these issues result from rats and possums, as well as cats and other creatures. They gnaw their way through the ductwork, hoping to find an enchanted and safe place to live, and leave the AC pipes damaged. They aren’t visible however, you may detect them or smell the odor.

The damage caused by possums is extensive and vast, and in most cases all AC ducts require replacement. Northwest Dallas’s top AC and Heating Repair team of duct repairers is specialized in identifying these issues and offering solutions to solve the issue.
Other animals, like dogs, cats, wombats, too, are also able to settle in the ducts to warm themselves and warm, leaving the AC vents damaged and limiting the flow of air.
A few ducts are damaged as a result of flooding. When water is able to get inside the AC ducts, the water remains for a long time, causing the ducts to shrink and become damaged. Sometimes, people get into the ductwork and crush and cause damage to the ducts. Some times it’s due to improper installation or being unable to access the air conditioning vents being far away from the heating system, the airflow is reduced in certain areas of the home
