The warm air comes from the Furnace but how does it reach every room in the house? We know that for this, the ductwork needs to be thanked. Ductwork is a series of lines that takes the warm air from the Furnace and disperses it via supply registers in different parts of the home. The Furnace needs repair when it gets damaged and replacement when it goes beyond usage but what about the ductwork? Does the ductwork need replacement as well? If yes, how often?


Ductwork Replacement - Things you need to know 

- Replace when it goes beyond repair

Just like the Furnace has a lifetime and cannot be repaired after that, the same is true for ductwork. There comes a time when, similar to the Furnace repair, the repair of the ductwork becomes costlier than replacing it. At such a time, it is wise to replace as early as possible. But there's an important thing to note here; although a rough lifetime is given by professionals, the lifetime of any appliance, as well as the ductwork, depends on how regularly it is maintained and how professionally repaired. The same unit for one homeowner may fail earlier than it will for a homeowner living next door for the above-mentioned reasons. So in order to know whether or not it is the time to replace, calculating the lifetime is not enough. Take instead, a professional's opinion about the replacement of a ductwork.

- Installing a new Furnace? Replace the ductwork as well 

HVAC investments are investments that are meant to benefit for years long. And these benefits continue to be comfortably benefiting when the appliance purchased is purchased after consulting a professional and the necessary HVAC changes are made along with that. Upgrading one appliance and using is with an outdated accessory does not prove to be a good choice at all. If you are upgrading Furnace this winter and the ductwork is a years-old ductwork, better replace it along with the Furnace. This replacement made at a time ensures optimal comfort.

- Redo a faulty ductwork 

There are chances that you had upgraded the Furnace last years and upgraded the ductwork along with it as well but the desired comfort is still found nowhere. One reason this happens is when the installed ductwork is not the right sizing, the right type or just that the technicians were incompetent to perform the installation properly. So if you have a little flexible budget this fall then better spend it on replacing the ductwork. A faulty or leaking ductwork can result in high energy bills, inappropriate air-flow or burdening the blower. So make the replacement well in time instead of wasting money like that.
