AC-duct-leaks

Central heating and air conditioning systems depend upon a system of ducts to do their jobs. The central units cool the air in the summer, then blow it through the ducts to the various rooms in your home.

But that can make it difficult to spot when leaks or other issues crop up. The good news is that air conditioning technicians can address the problem of leaking ducts quickly and efficiently. But before they can do that, you need to be able to spot the signs that something is wrong.
