The best ways to determine if it’s time to consider replacing your air ducts are: the amount of dust floating in your home, if you’ve noticed your AC becoming noisier, if you can’t keep the temperature consistent from one room to another, and the age of your home and if you’ve ever had your air ducts replaced before.
