Ductwork is an essential component of any HVAC system, responsible for distributing heated or cooled air throughout a building. However, like any other mechanical system, it can encounter various issues that can effect its efficiency and performance. In this blog post, we will explore four common ductwork issues that homeowners and HVAC professionals often come across.
Studies performed by the EPA suggest that in the average home, around 20-30% of the energy used for heating and cooling is wasted as a result of leaky ductwork. That’s 30 cents out of every dollar you pay in energy bills. Over a year, this can add up to hundreds of wasted dollars. In this blog, we'll cover signs that you have leaky ducts and five benefits of sealing your ductwork.
Air duct leaks can be a major nuisance in any home or building. Not only do they lead to inefficient heating and cooling, but they can also negatively impact indoor air quality. Understanding the causes of air duct leaks is crucial in order to prevent and address these issues effectively.
