Does the Ductwork in My Building Need to Be Inspected Regularly?
Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Commercial Services pros say regular inspection of building ductwork could save major cash thanks to improved energy efficiency.

Duct work inspection

When you are wondering about the ductwork in your building, you can turn to the commercial services pros for answers. If the ductwork conveying warm and cool air throughout your business isn’t airtight, inefficient temperature regulation is bound to become a problem. You’ll be paying to cool down or warm up outside air that ultimately won’t stay in your business or building.

Ductwork can become a major issue if left uninspected. A regularly scheduled maintenance check from a professional commercial services team can verify the condition of ductwork, as well as determine the quality of air being circulated in the building.

Besides saving money, this aspect of duct examination can keep residents, employees and customers healthy and safe from common toxins that sometimes build up in an enclosed space. Dust, mold, and other irritants frequently cause respiratory distress after repeated exposure.

Here are a few warning signs to be on the lookout for when it comes to ductwork issues:

  • Unresponsive thermostat: If you frequently notice that your thermostat setting doesn’t correspond with the temperature in your house, it could be that your system is working against drafty ducts.
  • Frequent respiratory problems like coughing or scratchy throats: Your ducts may need to be cleaned to ensure better quality air. Air carrying pollutants may also be brought in if you have a leaky duct system.
  • Hot or cold patches throughout your building: If the air conditioning isn’t being properly distributed, it could indicate a localized issue in a particular part of your ductwork.
  • Noisy operating system: If your system is making unusual noises, it could be struggling to compensate for poorly connected ductwork. This is an expensive and annoying byproduct of an inefficient system.

A regular ductwork checkup can help catch small problems before they escalate. To schedule professional commercial services from the ductwork experts at G + S Energy, contact us.
