The Importance of Proper Ducts


According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program, leaky ducts in attics or crawlspaces can account for 20 percent or more of a home’s heating and cooling energy losses.

This results in higher utility bills for you and difficulty keeping your house comfortable.

Leaky air ducts also place extra strain on your heating and cooling equipment.

This is a major issue, and one that causes significant consternation for home owners in the Houston area in particular.

On average, a ductwork system that is not at full operational capacity could be losing as much as 40% of the energy that it should be providing to the home as hot or cool air.

It may sound like a small amount today – add it up over the year, though, and those expenses soon add up.




A few signs you may have leaky ducts are if you have:

High utility bills in summer and winter 
Difficult-to-heat-and-cool rooms 
Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable 
Attic, crawlspace, or garage ducts
 Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
