Air ducts play a major role in keeping your home safe and comfortable, but they are easy to forget about. However, if you are noticing that your energy costs are higher than they should be, you may have your ductwork to blame. Improperly insulated or sealed ducts can lead to some extremely expensive consequences.
Leaky ductwork can increase the amount of money you spend on your energy bill by hundreds of dollars every year. By having your duct system properly insulated and sealed by a professional you will be able to see real savings on your heating and cooling bill each month.
This is especially true for areas of your home that are not meant to be air conditioned or heated, such as attics, unfinished basements, vented crawlspaces, etc. When your supply ducts are leaking, the air that you are paying to heat and cool will seep through the unsealed joints, taking your hard earned money with it. Plus, these leaky spots in your ductwork will often draw in unheated and air conditioned air back into your system, causing your air conditioner and furnace to work harder, to keep up.
