Better Air Duct Care
If you have central air conditioning, forced-air heating or both, your house has a system of ductwork that distributes heated or cooled (conditioned) air through your home.

There are supply ducts that “blow” conditioned air in to your various rooms, while return ducts bring air to the furnace or air-conditioning unit so this air can be conditioned and redistributed.

This cycle continues until your home thermostat tells your furnace or AC the right temperature has been reached.

Efficient Ductwork Does Make a Difference
Properly sized and installed ductwork is critical in any heating and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Unfortunately, ductwork is frequently overlooked in a home energy audit, despite its importance. As a result, bad things can happen. For example:

  • Comfort: Leaking supply ducts let out air you’ve paid to heat or cool before it even gets into your home. Leaky return ducts allow unconditioned air from your attic, basement, or crawl space to leak back into your system. In both cases, the air that reaches your living space isn’t as conditioned it’s supposed to be, so your comfort is compromised.
  • Energy efficiency: If conditioned air leaks out before it gets to your living space, obviously you’re not getting what you paid for. If unconditioned air leaks into your system, it takes more energy (and money) to condition it before it reaches your living space. Basically, you could be cooling or heating the great outdoors without even realizing it!
  • Indoor air quality: If you have return duct leaks, you could be pumping “bad air” directly into your living space whenever your system runs. You wouldn’t want to breathe crawl space or attic air all day, but if you have this uncontrolled leakage, you might be! Leaky ducts also cause indoor air quality problems because of “pressure imbalances” that put some rooms or areas under positive pressure and others under negative pressure. This can cause unhealthy air (laden with dirt, dust, pollen, allergens, and other contaminants) to be sucked into your home.
  • Safety risk: Pressure imbalances caused by leaking ducts can cause back drafts in combustion appliances like furnaces, wood stoves and gas ranges. When this happens, you risk exposure to the deadly gas, carbon monoxide.
