Ducts that move air to-and-from a forced air furnace, central air conditioner, or heat pump are often big energy wasters. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system – and sometimes much more.
The greatest heat loss can be in your duct work. They should be inspected to ensure they are sealed, sized correctly, and intact. Duct leaks are “invisible leaks that cost a lot of money.”
We focus first on sealing ducts that run through the attic. After sealing the ducts in those spaces, we carefully wrap the ducts in insulation to keep them from getting too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. Next, we seal ducts that you can access in the heated or cooled parts of the house.
An undersized or improperly sized duct will affect the efficiency of your air flow. Undersized ducts will cause the unit to struggle to do its job and, during hard weather conditions, may end up costing you a lot of money!
If you decide that your A/C and/or heat systems are not efficient, a free estimate is available for a new energy powered system. We use a 21 point inspection process that includes check ups on all duct-work. We ensure that both the indoor and the outdoor coils are cleaned. We will also inspect the safety of your system’s electrical system.
