Ventilation and DuctworkVentilation and Energy Recovery– There is a section on home appraisal forms for energy-efficient features, so pointing out energy saving improvements you’ve made to a home is worthwhile.  Energy recovery systems sometimes utilize heat recovery ventilation or energy recovery ventilation systems that employ heat exchangers or enthalpy wheels to recover sensible or latent heat from exhausted air. This is done by transfer of energy to the incoming outside fresh air.

Age and condition of ventilating are taken into consideration in heating and air conditioning home appraisals.. If anything is in very bad shape, or not working properly, it could affect the home’s value negatively. Improvements such as new appliances or replaced supporting fixtures such as ductwork and piping may be recorded positively. Most of us are aware of the dangers of air pollution outside of the home. Every year, we hear of efforts to contain that pollution, protect the environment and preserve the ozone layer. Interestingly, much less focus is placed on indoor air quality, despite the fact that pollution levels are generally two to five times higher indoors than out and can be up to 100 times higher in big cities. Couple this with the fact that Americans spend more than 90 percent of their time using ventilation indoors, and we can immediately see that our focus must shift to improving indoor air quality if we’re going to protect our health and well-being.

Air Quality

Poor air quality can be caused by mold, dust, off-gassing associated with building materials, radon, carbon dioxide, tobacco smoke, cooking fumes, bathroom exhaust, and simple metabolic processes of humans and animals, where CO2 and other by-products are released simply through breathing.

Most of us will notice when our homes are too stuffy, too humid, or if there’s some strange smell we can’t seem to figure out. But surprisingly, few of us know that the key to controlling these problems lies with our ventilation systems. Proper ventilation systems are important to our health and comfort, many people are hesitant to use them because ventilation systems. This process helps us bring fresh air into our homes, remove pollutants and control humidity levels, all while it is invisible to the ears, eyes, nose and touch. We shouldn’t feel air from ventilation systems creating drafts. It shouldn’t blow papers off the desk or billow the drapes. We shouldn’t be able to smell exhaust fumes or outside odors. And we shouldn’t be able to hear the fresh air being distributed through our homes while the stale air is being removed. Learn more with our Consumer Guide for heating and air conditioning.

 

Ductwork Problems That Interfere With Airflow Ventilation

Since they are out of sight, your home’s vents and ductwork may also be out of mind — until, that is, something is amiss. Maybe one room in your home is always too cold or too hot, or another room seems more humid than the others. A blower door test can help shed light on many ventilation problems.

 

Ductwork 

Those, metal and flexible ducts that snake around your home may look fierce and indestructible, but actually they are rather easy to bend, kink, crack and break. In fact, if you’ve ever accidentally bumped up against one, you know that the “thundering” noise of impact is quickly followed by a ripple of damage. A splintered duct is just one problem that may interfere with airflow ventilation in your home. The others include:

  • Supply and return leaks
  • Furnace leaks
  • Disconnected or loose ducts
  • Insulation that has fallen out of place
  • Duct tape failure
  • Leaky duct connections

PA HVAC Contractors-Ductwork

Before you call us, make sure that you are not unwittingly restricting the airflow in your home; check that furniture, book shelves, toy boxes and other objects are not obstructing registers and returns. In fact, it’s a good idea to identify the registers in your home, and if you can’t find any in one room, chances are good that they are being blocked. Our ductwork and your vents are just as important as the rest of your HVAC system, and they should be checked every year as part of your autumn to-do list. A number of common problems can make your heating and cooling equipment less efficient, and can cause extensive wear over time.

 

 

 

 

Ventilation Ductwork Check-up list:

  1. Make sure all ductwork was sealed or vented properly when construction of the home took place.
  2. Ducts should be inspected for leaks that hamper air flow. Check for even the smallest cracks that aren’t immediately visible.
  3. Seal leaks with professional grade material. The number one mistake people make is sealing cracks with duct tape. It dries out very quickly and doesn’t close the leak off for very long.
  4. Clean your ducts every so often to remove particles that could overload the components inside your HVAC system. Indoor air quality is also important, as an excess of irritating particles can cause allergies, asthma and respiratory illness.
  5. Inspect for mold inside the ducts, vents and furnace. When moisture reaches a high point of 60 percent, mold spores can thrive, and over time this can cause your heating and cooling equipment to become less efficient.
  6. Do not block air intake registers from being able to have air flow through them easily.
  7. Do not allow delivery vents to be blocked off by cardboard or other materials.
