How to tell when your home’s ductwork needs to be replaced 


Your home’s ductwork is an important part of your HVAC system. It helps to circulate air throughout your home and can play a big role in your overall comfort level. Over time, however, your ductwork can start to show signs of wear and tear. If you’re not sure when it’s time to replace your ductwork, here are a few things to look for. 


If your ducting is more than 15 years old, it should be replaced. The maximum lifespan of ductwork is 20-25 years. However, after 15 years, it begins to deteriorate, considerably diminishing the effectiveness of your HVAC system, therefore replacement is the wise decision. 


Holes or rips in the ductwork; fractures in the joints; or corrosion on the metal sections are all symptoms that your ducting needs to be replaced. If you’re unsure if your ductwork needs to be changed, a skilled HVAC specialist can evaluate it. 


Ductwork is an important part of any home’s HVAC system. It’s important to keep an eye on it and know when it’s time for a replacement. By replacing your ductwork every 15-20 years, you can help prolong the life of your HVAC system and keep your home comfortable for years to come.
