Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Ductwork
Air ducts are delicate yet vital components of your HVAC system. When you have issues with your ducts, you’ll experience some key indicators that they may need to be replaced by a professional AC and heating company.
Having a Dusty Home
Are you constantly cleaning up dust on surfaces? This could be a sign that your ductwork is dirty and circulating pollutants throughout your home.
When parts of your home are colder or hotter than others, it may be because of poor airflow. Our licensed comfort specialists can help diagnose the cause of insufficient air circulation.
Moisture and humidity can create the perfect environment for mold to thrive inside your air ducts. As a result, you’ll get foul odors. Schedule your duct cleaning with One Hour today.
Noisy HVAC Unit
Is your HVAC making odd sounds? It may be your ducts and not your actual heating and cooling system. Built-up air pressure can cause your air ducts to rumble, making strange sounds. We can check to ensure connections and seals are secure.
Inconsistent Room Temperatures
Closed vents causing restricted airflow and leaks in air ducts can result in inconsistent room temperatures. Improper ductwork installation can be the main culprit, but our professional technicians can assist with that.
When air duct installation isn’t done correctly, pests can make a comfy home in your air ducts via cracks or leaks. You need a dedicated HVAC company ready to install ductwork adequately to keep pests and insects from entering your ducts.
Debris in Vents
Dirt, dust, and other debris can result from a lack of maintenance and insufficient ductwork installation. Let One Hour support you with comprehensive HVAC solutions.
Increase in Allergies
Having your air ducts cleaned professionally is a simple way to mitigate dust circulation throughout your ductwork. However, if these respiratory issues become worse, you may need to have your air ducts and HVAC replaced.
Ducts Are Damaged or Tangled
Dents and dings in your air ducts can be unsightly, but they can also cause leaks that lead to a host of different issues that affect the temperature of your home. Similarly, tangled ducts are a sign of poor ductwork installation and should be assessed immediately.
Inexplicable Cost Increase in Energy Bills
When your energy bills increase, the first place you should look is your HVAC system and air ducts. If they’re not working together, you’ll experience a temperature imbalance, higher energy bills, and more.
Ductwork that hasn’t been replaced in over 15 years could cause poor indoor air quality, allergy- and cold-like symptoms, and an inefficiently operating HVAC unit.

Cooling Frequently Asked Questions
A single inlet swamp cooler uses a thick pad known as “12-inch media” as opposed to a conventional cooler which uses four smaller pads. The smaller pads of a conventional cooler are generally made out of aspen fibers and need to be changed yearly; sometimes even more if there is a lot of hard water. A single inlet cooler needs its pad changed after about 3 years of use and cools 3-5 degrees cooler than a conventional cooler.
The answer is simple: more parts go into a spring changeover. Usually, for a fall change over, the only thing that needs to be replaced is the filter on your heater. Sometimes cooler parts need to be replaced if they are broken or worn down.
Different conditions in the house determine how often the filter needs to be changed, such as pets, cigarette smoke, dust, etc. We recommend changing your filter at least once every 3 months.
If your A/C system is properly installed you should never have to add refrigerant. If your system is leaking refrigerant, it is important to get it repaired correctly. We can detect and repair leaks in your A/C system.
