There’s a commonly overlooked component of your air conditioner that you should probably be paying more attention to. At least, if you want your cooling system (and heating system too, if you use a forced air heater) to operate efficiently and effectively, you’ll pay attention to this component. We’re talking about your ductwork!
Some parts of your air ducts may be easy to see—perhaps they’re exposed in an area of your attic. However most ductwork is hidden behind walls and in crawl spaces, and it can be a bit trickier to discover repair needs. So how do you know when something is wrong, and why does it matter?
