The ducts that are part of central heating and cooling systems offer one of the best opportunities to increase your energy efficiency, increase your comfort, and manage your energy bills. Studies indicate that 10%-30% of the heated or cooled air is lost along with the money spent to heat or cool that air through leaky ducts.
Properly sized, installed, and sealed ductwork will make your heating and cooling systems significantly more efficient. Energy loss is not the only concern, however. Duct systems can also involve the comfort of your family, employees, tenants, or customers, as well as your indoor air quality. Testing the ducts will locate leaks or damage and focus repair work in the right areas.
A properly operating heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will help reduce overall energy use especially during hot summer days when air conditioners are working harder and putting a strain on the electric system and will deliver greater comfort and cleaner air to every room.
New homes built in the last 10 years are also not immune to major leaks. Only 1 out of 7 newer homes that used sampling rules have been tested for leakage. Just having a duct test on your home will give you the peace of mind that you are not wasting money cooling or heating your attic.
We are working hard to change the traditional ideas that people have about air conditioning. Give us a call today for more information on testing you home or business!
