Duct Leakage Causes
Many things can cause air ducts to leak cool air, but the most common reason of HVAC leaks are cracks and tears in old ductwork. Other causes include but are not limited to:
- Rodent infestation
- Unsecure joint connections
- Material breakdown
- Regular wear and tear
- Damage from inexperienced duct cleaning
When you home or commercial HVAC system’s ducts leak cool air in your attic, your electricity bill will increase even though the building isn’t cooling properly. You may also experience hot and cold spots, indicating an air flow problem. There are many warning signs of a leak that you should watch out for so that you won’t waste money on unnecessarily high electricity bills.
Signs of an Air Duct Leak
