Air ducts make whole-home heating and cooling possible. They attach to your air conditioner (AC), heat pump, or furnace to distribute treated air. Well-maintained ductwork allows for a healthy airflow to keep your Virginia, home comfortable regardless of the outdoor weather.

Are My Ducts Leaking?
Have trouble getting your heating or cooling to circulate? Your air conditioning unit or furnace may be acting up. However, it could be a problem with your air ducts. Leaky ductwork can reduce efficiency by up to 20 percent per month, according to ENERGY STAR®.
Here are some signs your ducts might be leaking:
- Higher utility bills
- Inconsistent heating or cooling
- Flexible ducts look kinked or tangled
Besides eating away at your utility bills, leaky ducts compromise your indoor air quality (IAQ). Poor ventilation invites pesky contaminants like dust and mold. It also makes your ducts a more habitable place for rodents and insects to mingle.
How Can I Avoid Heat Loss?
Even if your ducts aren’t leaking, they can still have issues with efficiency. Many homes suffer from heat loss, usually caused by poor duct insulation.
Our Garneski Air Conditioning & Heating specialists can perform an energy audit to pinpoint areas where your home is losing heat. They can patch or insulate the areas. This simple inspection will provide you with massive energy savings in the long term. It will also make your home much more comfortable year-round.
Air Duct Installation and Replacement
On average, a home ductwork system lasts roughly 10 to 15 years. At around a decade of heavy use, efficiency begins to dwindle.
Combined with age, here are some signs it’s time to replace your ducts:
- Poor air quality (a musty mold scent or dust)
- Pest problems
- Poor heating or cooling

Chances are, the air ducts in your home are fabricated from either galvanized steel, aluminum, polyurethane and phenolic panels, fiberglass duct board, or flexible ducting—or a combination of these materials.
When your ducts were new, they may or may not have been correctly installed and insulated. If they were not, you could have been experiencing leaks and issues all along.
Our installers will seal the seams between duct pieces and at connections. Where necessary, they insulate them. An inexperienced installer may use the wrong materials to seal the seams or execute the job poorly. Either way, you suffer the consequences.
Even if your air ducts were installed well, over time seam seals and duct insulation break down, allowing leakage. Materials can shift and rust as well, also causing leaks.
