Causes of Duct Breaches
A duct breach can result from a wide variety of factors. External damage is a common one, created by anything from a clumsy repair on another part of your home to an animal like a raccoon or a squirrel getting into your crawlspace and digging away. In some case, a breach can spring from loose bolts or fittings between individual sections of your ducts. Either way, it spells trouble for your HVAC system.

Problems Caused by Duct Breaches
The biggest issue created by a duct breach is slowing the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system. The breach will either pull conditioned air out or pull unconditioned air in, which reduces the heat (or coolness) of your household overall. As a result, your HVAC system needs to work harder to do its job, increasing your monthly energy bills and raising the chances of a breakdown somewhere else in the system. In addition, a breach can also spread dust and dirt throughout your home, and if it takes place in the spring, then pollen and other aspects of our Portland, OR climate will get pulled in too.
