Ductwork is a key component of any HVAC system. Ducts are the primary conduit for distributing air throughout a home. Proper duct installation is important to ensure your central heating and air system is working efficiently and properly cooling / heating your home.
Did you know that 70% of the duct systems are designed too small for the equipment they are connected to as a way to cut cost during a home’s construction?
If your ductwork looks anything like the above pictures, it can cause many problems in the very near future due to failing ductwork, leaky and/or contaminated ducts. These problems need to be prevented or addressed quickly due to the high costs of inefficiency that you are probably not even aware of.
Typical duct systems can lose up to 40% of the heating and cooling energy they carry. This causes the central heating and air unit to work overtime, leading to potential issues with the system that can prove costly. Even leaking 20% of the conditioned air can cause the whole system to work 50% harder.
