Homeowners tend to ask if they really do need new ducts when we replace their air conditioning and heating system. The answer, though, is almost always a resounding yes.
The duct system is largely responsible for what you actually feel when you heat and air condition your home. It doesn’t matter what size A/C unit you have (3ton, 4 ton, etc.) or how efficient your furnace is if that air doesn’t get into your home. You are paying good money to have hot or cold air added to your home so that you can be comfortable.
I would even go so far as to say that you want your home the most comfortable it can be at the lowest possible cost. And that combination is largely a result of quality design and installation of your ducts.
If you have flexible ducts and are over 10 to 15 years old, they will most likely need replacing. Older, flexible ducts often have poor insulation and may have asbestos as insulation material, and likely to have rips and tears. In addition, many contractors fail to properly seal the duct connections when they’re installed, which leads to the air you’re paying to create being dissipated to the attic, basement and walls. This is not what you want.
Ductwork must be well-sealed, insulated, and balanced to ensure your home's heating and cooling systems work as efficiently as possible. Most homes have leaky ductwork and insufficient air flow, which can result in an uncomfortable living environment — regardless of the thermostat setting.
A duct system that is properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and deliver cleaner air.
