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.

Heating Frequently Asked Questions
- Different conditions in the house determine how often the filter needs to be changed, such as pets, cigarette smoke, dust etc. We recommend checking your filter every 2 months to gauge how often it needs replacement.
The average life of a furnace is around 20 years with routine maintenance. If your unit is around this age, it may be more cost effective to have it replaced versus keeping up with repairs.
New Mexico gas is responsible for the gas line up to the meter. Any appliances or lines after the meter are the responsibility of the homeowner. We can check your appliances for any code violations and depending on your situation, the problem may be corrected with a repair. Some situations require the replacement of the appliance in question.
A single-stage furnace has just one gear when it runs. A two-stage furnace has a low gear and a high gear. A two-stage furnace will run in a lower gear in milder weather versus a single stage which will run in a higher gear.
Load calculations are used to determine the size of a furnace needed to heat your home. They take into account total square footage, home construction, and the weather conditions of the area. Furnaces are usually sized with the coldest days of the year in mind. With New Mexico’s mild weather, a furnace running at full capacity is not always necessary. That’s where a two-stage furnace comes in. Two-stage furnaces start in a lower stage of heat which uses less gas and electricity thus cutting down on utility costs. On days where the demand for heat is greater, the furnace will run at full capacity
We recommend checking your filter as the first step for any issues with your furnace. If it is dirty, change it and give it a day to see if it improves. If not, give us a call to troubleshoot the unit.
