If you have an air conditioner it is best to periodically call for air conditioning service so that the appliance remains functional and delivers top performance. An important part of air conditioner maintenance is air conditioning vents replacement which leads to multiple benefits for your appliance. A vent replacement upgrades the look of your AC and improves its efficiency.

However, to achieve the best results you should ask a professional to help you and the ideal period to go for a replacement is every 15-20 years. For convenience, you can club it with ductwork replacement.

How is air conditioning vent replaced?

All ducted air conditioners use a network of ducts and vents to transport air around the building. The vents can be in the floor, ceiling or the walls. The vents are available in different sizes, shapes and aesthetic appeal so that they can suit the space and each one provides a unique air flow.

Replacement of vents must be handled by a professional who is qualified to do the job and can ensure that no problem occurs with the newly fitted vents. It is advised that you do not try a DIY replacement as it needs an expert to look at the entire system.

The four steps of vent replacement are:

  1. Turn off the power to the air conditioner and lay out sheets to avoid mess
  2. Replace the crew and clean the ductwork
  3. Replace the old vent with new ones
  4. Do a performance test to ensure the air flow is perfect and in the right direction

With the multiple options, available in the market, you can choose a vent that complements the interiors of your space and accentuates its aesthetic beauty.

When should you replace the air conditioning vents?

As mentioned earlier the ideal time to replace the vents is after 15-20 years. However, there are other factors that determine and influence the need for replacing the vents:

  • Visible damage: Any mold or cracks that you notice on the vents are a sign that the vents need replacement. Mold build up can pose health risks so you must take this seriously.
  • High utility bills: If vents are blocked or broken you will notice a rise in your energy bills. When the vents are blocked, or broken the system needs to work harder to transport the air around the building. This means more energy consumption and higher energy bills.
  • Poor air quality: When the vents are broken or blocked, dust and dirt can get transported along with the conditioned air, thus decreasing the quality of air.

If you notice any of the above signs of damage or you think the vents are due for replacement, then you must hire a professional service provider who specializes in air conditioning repair and maintenance.

Make sure you call a professional who holds licenses and certifications to operate in your area. A timely air conditioner vent replacement will ensure better air quality, give you increased comfort and help you save energy.
