Would you stand outside on a windy day with a handful of hundred dollar bills and open your hand so the wind could grab them from you? No? That could be happening right now, and the thieves are your air ducts.
How much do you spend every year to keep the home cool? In most homes, 20-30% of the cool (or warm) air moving through the air ducts is lost because of poor connections, leaks or holes. That air costs money but gives no benefit.
What are clues that air is being lost?
- It happens gradually, but one day it’s realized that the home isn’t as evenly warm or cool as it once was. Some rooms don’t heat or cool as well as they once did and may feel stuffy, regardless of how the thermostat is set.
- Utility bills are higher than they should be.
- It’s discovered that some duct work needs repair.
The air duct system carries the air from the central air conditioning system and furnace throughout the house. This duct work can be made from fiberglass, sheet metal or another material. Visualize a network of branching tubes. There are numerous connections, each of which has the potential to leak.
Duct work can also be damaged when:
- TV cables or insulation are installed or during a remodeling project.
- Pests get into the system and chew on it.
- The duct work ages. While duct work lasts for many years, it eventually needs repair.
