Phoenix gets hot. For over half the year, most residents will have their air conditioning units on full blast. It can get expensive, but it’s worth it for the cool air. That being said, you don’t want to be wasting your money on electricity that isn’t going towards keeping your home at a comfortable temperature. But if you have a duct leak, that is exactly what you are doing. Your home’s ductwork is a crucial part of your residential ecosystem, and if it isn’t working perfectly, it can cost you money and comfort. Here’s everything you need to know about dealing with duct leaks in Phoenix.
How to tell if you’ve got a leak
The truth is that most Phoenix residents can’t tell if they’re HVAC system is broken or working perfectly. Remember, it doesn’t have to stop working completely for it to be broken. A leaking duct can be just as bad. That’s why many residents choose to call an HVAC expert in Phoenix AZ, like Morehart AC. Our professional technicians are trained to spot the tell-tale signs of leaking ducts and can conduct tests to identify the issues.
But how can you tell when it is the right time to call us?
There are actually a couple of ways that civilians can tell if something is up with their HVAC unit. The first is energy bills that are higher than usual. If you have leaks in your ducts, your HVAC unit is going to have to work harder than normal to keep your home at the desired temperature. The harder it has to work, the more money it will cost. Another way to tell is a badly balanced home environment. You may find that parts of your home are particularly cool or particularly stuffy. This suggests that you might have a leak. You may also notice increased amounts of dust in the air you breathe. If you spot any of these signs, give us a call.
Why use a professional?
“But can’t I do this myself?” you ask. It’s true that it is possible to spot and fix a leaking duct yourself, but it’s almost certainly a tough task. First of all, it will be much quicker for one of our technicians to use specialist equipment and years of experience to spot leaks. It may take you hours. What’s your time worth to you? Secondly, you may not spot every leak. It takes technicians a lot of training to know how to identify every leak in a system, so we definitely don’t expect your average Joe to be able to do the same. Finally, there’s the issue of knowing what to do when you find leaks. Sealing a leak isn’t a straightforward process and should really be completed by a trained professional. Besides, sealing the leaks may not be the best strategy. It might be a better move to replace parts of the system or install a new system entirely. Only a trained professional can make the correct call.
