  2. Uninsulated ducts. Uninsulated ducts in unconditioned parts of your home can raise the temperature of the air in your ducts and make it difficult to cool your home.
  3. Poor duct design. If your air conditioning system wasn’t installed by a qualified contractor like Jerry Kelly, there’s a chance that your ductwork can suffer from design issues such as improperly sized ducts or an inadequate amount of supply and return registers.
