Air ducts are designed to be hidden, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Despite popular belief, it’s important to check your air ducts every now and then for leaks and other damage that could be causing problems. Let’s talk about why and when your air ducts need an inspection.
Damaged and dirty air ducts are nothing but trouble for your HVAC system as a whole. Not only do air leaks and other damage make your system less efficient, but they also cost you money by allowing conditioned air to escape before it cools your home. Dirty air ducts (which can be caused by leaks) also reduce the quality of your home’s air. Having your ductwork inspected lets you know if you need HVAC duct repair before the problems cost you more money.
You should have your ducts inspected (or inspect them yourself if you have the time and know what to look for) once per year. The best time to schedule your inspection is in the early spring or late fall because you’re not using your AC very much and your heater isn’t really needed. This makes it easier to inspect the ductwork and do air duct repair if needed, especially because your attic won’t reach triple digits or be extremely cold. When your HVAC technician is comfortable, the job gets done faster!
If your technician recommends ductwork repair or duct cleaning to improve your air quality, don’t be deterred from future inspections! Finding damage means that your preventive inspections fulfilled its intended purpose: finding problems before they become bigger and more expensive. Just like with HVAC tune-ups duct inspections are meant to make sure your air ducts are working fine and fix them if they aren’t.

Friendly, professional, reliable, and reasonable price. I had a great experience upgrading my attic insulation. We had good communication, they did the job in a timely manner, and they didn’t pressure me to add on more than I needed. Quick and easy.
Very pleased with Go Green! They were able to come out the same day I called and were very friendly, honest, and informative and did good work. Thanks Go Green!
Totally happy with my A.C. check today. Feared the worst but you guys really came through. You are now my go-to A.C. guys. Highly recommended!
Our technician, Mike was great! Went above and beyond to answer all my questions as well as doing a very efficient job.
5-star service all around from the initial consultation to the final install. Thank you for a flawless experience, Brandon Acosta!
After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
Such a professional process…from estimate through installation. The payment options were amazing. Brandon is terrific …explained everything from beginning to end. The technicians, knowledgeable, fast and thorough. Highly recommend Go Green!
