How to Tell if Your Ductwork is Sized Correctly

AC Ductwork

It’s common for home and business owners to have the wrong sized ducts for their air conditioning and not even know it! 

If your AC duct work is not sized correctly, you could be dealing with annoying noises and spending more on your utilities that you need to. Our AC repair service can make sure that your ducting is doing its job and saving you money! 

Here’s how you can tell if your ductwork is the wrong size. 

Ductwork That is Too Small

The first problem you can encounter with your AC duct work is it being too small. This is a common problem, and it can be easily remedied by an HVAC professional. 

Undersized ductwork can technically get the job done, but it can come at a huge cost to homeowners. With ductwork that is too small, you run the risk of dealing with loud noises coming from your HVAC system. This can be rattling, whistling, or other types of distracting noises. 

Another common problem is oversized ductwork. 

Problems With Oversized Ductwork

When ductwork that is too large for the HVAC system to handle gets installed, you can lose heating and air conditioning power in your home. 

Oversized ductwork means that your HVAC equipment is going to have to push air that much harder to make it through your ducts. This means cold winters and hot summers as well as a higher risk of damage to your AC and heating systems. 

There’s another common ductwork sizing issue that many people don’t notice—at first!

Length and Layout Issues 

The ductwork in question might have the right size connections, but if the layout is wrong you could be wasting valuable energy, as well as hard-earned money, heating your ducts instead of your home. 

A professional HVAC technician can make sure that your ductwork is on the most efficient route from your AC and heating systems to the rooms in your home.
