Energy Efficiency & Your HVAC System
Most of the homes in our area have forced or blown-air heating and cooling systems. If you have one of these systems, your air ducts distribute air that heats and cools your home. In a typical house, however, about 20 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 a house comfortable, no matter where the thermostat is set. Acker Heating & Cooling offers ductwork repair to maximize your system’s energy efficiency.
Reasons Ductwork May Need Servicing
Although we’d like to think that every air conditioning company takes the time to properly install ductwork, that’s not always the case. The most common issue is poorly sealed ductwork at joints or connections, but we’ve seen cases where one run of ductwork isn’t even connected to the vent.
Sometimes during a new HVAC system installation, we find that ductwork repair is needed. This may be due to age of the ducts, damage from pests or people in the attic, or sometimes just due to time. Acker Heating & Cooling also offers ductwork repair as a separate service if you know this is an issue in your home or business.
Beyond Energy Efficiency
The biggest benefit homeowners gain from ductwork repair is increased energy efficiency of their system. However, there is another benefit. Because the blown air in your system is distributed through your ducts, a tear or a poorly sealed duct doesn’t just result in escaped air. It also means that air from your attic, basement or crawl space can get into the ducts. This can lead to poor air quality in your home.
