When is the last time you thought about the effectiveness of your ductwork? Chances are, like the average homeowner, you don’t give this much thought! In fact, when something goes wrong with your air conditioning system your first instinct is likely to call for repairs to the system, not to your air ducts.
However, poor air duct sealing is actually a pretty significant issue in the HVAC industry. Part of the reason for this is because oftentimes ductwork is installed by people who don’t necessarily have the appropriate training in HVAC. Although even if they do, sometimes it can be a case of air pressure within the ducts causing cracks and holes over time.
