It Pays Having Good Ductwork

Aug 17, 2007
The kind of ductwork installed in your house can determine how livable your home can really be. A good ductwork should be one of the important factors to consider in buying a new house. Why? There are a variety of reasons for this.

A good ductwork can make air around the house circulate more effectively. As you well know, you need a home with good air circulation in order to live comfortably in it. A home with good air circulation makes your home feel cooler and fresher.

Ever been inside a house that has that persistent foul odor all around? Didn't you somehow notice that the foul odors do not seem to go away?

The owner of the house can't seem to notice this foul odor himself when you ask him about it. That is because he has already gotten accustomed to the smell that he has already made his olfactory senses immune to the foulness that you smell.

But every visitor who comes by his house will no doubt smell it. Do you know the cause of that constant foul smell around the house? Poor air circulation and a bad ductwork system that is the problem.

Have you ever noticed, particularly in your own home, that some foul odors don't seem to go away even though you have tried cleaning your house on a regular basis? You have already cleaned every nook and cranny and yet there is still that offensive smell that you can't seem to get rid of.

Chances are, you have faulty ductwork in your home.
Are you noticing some moldy substance spreading in the walls of your house? Do some parts of it feel as if moisture has formed somewhere and has soiled up some parts of it? You are right. Moisture has indeed seeped somehow from the insides of your walls. "But how did it happen", you are bound to ask yourself.

Possibly, the ductwork in your home is over-pressurizing the interior, even to the point that the cold air from the ductwork looks for some place of escape until it finds its way in between the walls.

The cold air passing through warm walls is the recipe to the formation of moisture on your walls. An ineffective ductwork can be blamed partly for this.

Now you know how good ductwork can differentiate your home from other ones. Just by looking at how the ductwork is installed in the house and how it works can determine how your house will fare out in the years to come.

An efficient ductwork system can also improve the air quality around your home. Good ductwork can also help you prevent unnecessary damage brought about by moisture due to poor air circulation.

An air-tight ductwork system can even help you save energy by efficiently distributing cool air during the summer and warm air around the house during the harsh winter.

A ductwork that is leak-proof can help bring in air to places where it really matters and will help prevent depressurization or over-pressurization in your home. Both processes are the culprit behind huge energy losses if not given a proper solution with an efficient ductwork system.

Depressurization can get unconditioned air to circulate all around the house while over-pressurization will let moisture form as the air looks for a means of escape and can seep through wall cavities where most unwanted moisture starts.
