Think of your AC ducts like your home’s circulatory system. For your home to be cooled efficiently, the AC ducts need to be functional and have the ability for cold air to pass through, without it leaking out. When AC ducts get old and can no longer be repaired or patched, you may want to think about replacing them. Priority AC in Houston can help repair or replace your AC ducts, saving you money each month.
How old are your AC ducts?
The maximum lifespan of AC ducts can range between 20– 25 years; however, most AC ductwork will begin to show signs of deterioration around the 15-year mark. Depending on the quality of the materials used when the home was built, your AC ducts may need replacement sooner than later. Regardless, if your home is between 10 – 15 years old and the AC ducts have never been replaced, you may want to consider investing in AC duct replacement in Houston. Let Priority AC inspect your ductwork to see if replacement is the right solution for you and your home.
Check airflow around the house
Experiencing hot and cold spots in your home? This is not a good sign - if there are inconsistencies in the way your home is being cooled, do a thorough walkaround and see if the airflow is consistent in each room. Old ducts can create drafts and, if this is the case, you may have an issue with your AC ducts and need to replace them. We can come to your home and check airflow quality to determine if we need to do AC duct replacement in your Houston home.
Signs that you should replace your AC ductwork
If you find that your home is not being adequately cooled when the AC is on, or you have signs of poor air quality, then it’s time to consider AC duct replacement in Houston. Old AC ducts will deteriorate over time, causing the ducts to leak and produce gaps and/or holes. This, in turn, allows pollens, dust, and other allergens to easily pass through and into the air you breathe. Read our indoor air quality blogs here >>>houston-is-getting-sick.html

How much does it cost to do an AC duct replacement?
When it comes to home improvement, no one wants to spend money unnecessarily. However, when it comes to your AC ducts, this becomes necessity vs. “a nice to have.” Poorly functioning AC ducts have both financial and health consequences for you and your family. It costs more money to run a defective, old AC unit with poor ductwork. When there are issues with your AC ducts, you could be paying for a system that wastes money.
