Our team is ready to come to your home and utilize Aeroseal, an effective and efficient method of mitigating duct leaks.
Why Leaking Ducts Harm Your HVAC System? Ducts run through a home and connect its rooms to an air conditioner and heater. If a duct is leaking, it could cause multiple problems with your HVAC system. Leaking ducts decrease the amount of airflow into your home. When a duct leaks, it ends up wasting warmed or cooled air, reducing the efficacy of your HVAC system. As a result, it forces the unit to work harder, lowering the lifespan of the unit over time. Not only does this cause your units to sustain unnecessary wear, but it also causes an increase in energy usage and higher bills. An estimated 30 cents of every dollar spent on a home’s energy can be wasted by leaking ductwork. Annually, about $25 billion is lost because of leaking ducts in the United States.
How do you know that your home has poorly performing ducts?
In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
