Air ducts are vital to the comfort of your home. They pass pressurized air to and from your heating and air conditioning system so you can maintain the perfect temperature inside your home. Any problems with the ductwork can hinder the airflow, making your HVAC system work harder and increasing your utility bills.
There are two main duct issues that could negatively impact the airflow throughout your home: leakage or poor insulation.
Leaks in your air ducts may not be noticeable immediately, but they could have a huge impact. Cracks, holes, or improperly sealed air ducts can cause at least 20 percent air loss. Even well-sealed or new ducts can lose some efficiency without you even knowing it.
Wagner Mechanical will take the time to analyze your entire system of ducts while exposing and repairing leaks. It’s best to have this leak check done regularly to ensure you’re not losing energy because of your ductwork.
Often, it’s not a leak at all that’s impacting the efficiency of your system and the comfort of your home. Instead, it may be the fault of uninsulated ducts. If the ducts in your home travel through unconditioned spaces such as attics, garages, and crawl spaces, then the temperature of the conditioned air could be changed significantly before reaching its destination. This impacts how hard your system has to work to make up the deficiency, thus increasing your utility bills.
