The Consequences of Leaky Ductwork
You may not have given much attention to your ducts before, which is perfectly understandable given the fact that they are usually tucked under layers of insulation, drywall, and the other structural components of your home. Nevertheless, failing to pay attention to your ducts, especially if they have started to leak, can result in many unfavorable consequences.
Some of the side effects of having leaking or damaged ductwork include:
- Your utility bills will rise exponentially: Even if you don’t use your heating or cooling unit often, you will notice much higher energy bills on account of a less efficient duct system.
- The indoor air quality of your home will greatly decrease: Leaking ducts directly contribute to more pollution in your house, filling the air with harmful contaminants like dust and bacteria.
- It will be harder to control the temperature: Your HVAC system has to work harder than ever with leaking ducts present, meaning your family’s comfort levels will rapidly drop.

When to Have Your Ductwork Replaced
Eventually, even the most reliable ductwork system will fail, simply on account of the fact that it has to work so hard throughout practically every season of the year. Since there are so many negative consequences of a malfunctioning duct system, you should not hesitate to have the ducts replaced when they have become too old. Although ducts typically last up to 10 years with proper maintenance, they may need to be replaced if they have become too noisy, or if you notice that the indoor air quality has dramatically worsened.
If you smell musty or moldy odors, and your utility bills have climbed astronomically, it is time to reach out to professionals for duct replacement.
The Importance of Having Professional Repairs of Your Ductwork System
Your ducts are an extremely complicated system. This means that no matter how good you are at completing DIY tasks, it is not a great idea to try to tackle a damaged or old set of ducts on your own. If something goes wrong, this could easily result in the entire system needing to be replaced, even if you initially only needed a couple of minor patches here and there.
The technician arrived with the diagnostic tools to determine the problem as well as the tools for repair. Obvious the tech knew what he was doing. The furnace required a new Capacitor which required the Tech to go up on the roof. The job was done in less than an hour.Mark Y.
This company came immediately this fall when my A/C shorted when the roofers moved it, and got it running again. When my heater went out before Xmas they came out the same day, diagnosed the problem, and had the part ordered. It took less than 20 minutes for them to install the part, and yay, the heater is working!Lisa H.
We had a great experience with comfort one! The technician was prompt, friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. He addressed the issue quickly and the price was reasonable. We plan to get their maintenance package because they were so pleasant to work with! Thanks comfort one!Kim B.
This company is a real gem in the industry. They are very responsive, explain everything you need and want to know, went over the options, and got the job done! They replaced two aging heat pump a/c rooftop units and were flexible enough to work with the roofer to do what was needed to seal underneath before completion. The price was very fair and competitive, and every one of their staff was pleasant and professional. I highly recommend them!Ben S.
Our AC started blowing warm air. We called Comfort One and they came out so quickly and had it fixed in no time. Our tech was so kind, answered ALL of our questions, and explained things so well!Rebecca D.
Comfort One Air Conditioning Came out the Same-Day to Repair our AC Unit. They were prompt, we're pushy, propped up our system and gave us advice on the next steps. The honest company would highly recommend them!Tom W.
I have used Comfort One since 2018 and love them and their service! They are honest, integrity-based, and service-oriented. It is like dealing with a friend who is taking care of you. Also, 2 of my friends have used them and one even said I saved her life with them they loved them so much. I have dealt mainly with Taps and Jessica (owners) and also John. The last few visits John has come. Recently he replaced the motor on my air conditioner. He found that it was under warranty and handled everything. Thank you for being the type of company I know I can completely rely on. I appreciate you.Amy S.
This company has been top-notch. I’ve worked with Taps and Jon at my work and now use them for my home. They are wonderful to work with and prices are fair and transparent. They are very responsive and communicate well. the comfort zone is my go-to HVAC company.Matt S.
I have been looking to find a reliable HVAC company for several years now. After trying several companies, Comfort One AC is the one. Today was my first experience with them and Jonathan was a Superstar! He discovered that my AC had been overcharged with refrigerant. He took the time to explain what that meant and how it could impact my system. He, of course, but the refrigerant to the level it should be. Excellent customer service can be hard to find, but that's exactly what Jonathan provided today. If you are looking for a new AC company, go with Comfort One AC. They are the BEST!W T.
