Loose air ducts can have a negative effect on your HVAC system and affect you in several ways. Unfortunately, the average home has air ducts that have holes, are misaligned, have fallen or have experienced adhesive failure. Loose air ducts can make your home uncomfortable and cost you money.
Higher Energy Bills
When you have loose air ducts, conditioned air is lost in them. This makes your HVAC system work harder, increasing your monthly energy bills. You could lose 20-40% of your HVAC systems airflow into unconditioned areas.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
If your ducts are loose, dust and debris are getting into them. These contaminants eventually end up in the air you breathe in your home. People with allergies, in particular, needlessly suffer when ducts are loose. Loose ducts can also cause a home to become stuffy and uncomfortable. Your air conditioner may not remove humidity from your home in the summer, for instance.
Loose air ducts rattle, wheeze, vibrate and make other sounds. You may not be able to easily see your duct work, but if you hear loud noises from it there’s a problem. You’ll only hear these noises when your HVAC system is on. Accurate Comfort Services, Inc., is a company in Naples, FL, that helps people who have loose ducts.

Loose air ducts can cause weak airflow. Some rooms in your home may receive little to no conditioned air, making them hotter or colder than the rest of the house. Too much conditioned air will end up in some rooms while there’s not enough in others.
