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.
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
Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
Attic, crawlspace, or garage ducts
Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
