The duct work in your home is just as important as the equipment its connected to. A lot of the time duct work can be overlooked and rob performance from your high efficiency air conditioner.
Another important aspect of the duct work is IAQ or indoor air quality. Lack of maintenance can allow dirt, dust, dander, dust mites and possibly mold to accumulate in your duct system. With that being said, all the air in your home passes through the duct system and can pick up and discharge these particles on the ceiling or other surfaces in your home. In some case duct work can be cleaned but Its best to have a professional come out and evaluate the condition of your duct system.
If your duct system is not sealed properly this could create an IAQ problem and/or create high power bills. A leaky return duct can allow dirty attic air to be sucked in to the HVAC system and discharged in to the home. A leaky supply duct will allow cold air to escape in to the attic instead of going in to the home and that will cause the HVAC system to run longer than it should.
If you experience hot or cold areas in your home this could be caused by not enough hot/cold air being delivered to that space. Duct work installed properly and sized correctly will allow your air conditioning and heating system to operate at maximum efficiency and eliminate those hot and cold spots. Additionally, undersized duct work will cause noisy operation of the HVAC system. If you experience turning up the TV when the air conditioner or heating system comes on, the chances are your duct work might be undersized.
