Leaky & Sneaky – The Unseen Costs of Air Leaks In Your Ducts
Did you know that the average home loses 20% to 30% of cooled and heated air because of leaks, poorly connected ducts, and holes? That means that even if you have a brand-new, high-efficiency unit, it can only deliver 70% to 80% of the performance you want. Get the max from your heating and cooling equipment by refreshing your ducts. This includes resizing, reinsulating, and resealing.
It’s important that ducts are sized correctly for the system they’re connected to.
Ducts that over or under-sized can hamper airflow and create cold and hot spots in your home. You should replace old or inappropriately sized ductwork to help guarantee the best results from your heating and cooling equipment.
Studies show that approximately 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated. That’s why attic insulation is so important. Making sure it’s properly insulated will not only help your HVAC system work best, it will also reduce the amount of wasted energy.
You can reduce leaks by resealing ducts at the seams or joints. Torn or broken ducts permit air leaks and for they force your heating and cooling equipment to work harder. Needless to say, if your air duct system is well-sealed, you’ll keep your home more comfortable for less.
The Benefits Of Efficient Ductwork
Appropriately fitted ductwork in your home can improve not just the comfort and efficiency, it also filters out airborne pollutants and biological contaminants. It also helps cancel out any unwanted noise through the HVAC system.
