BETTER BUILDING PERFORMANCE, LLC
Tears or disconnects in your air duct systems are some of the most common reasons for an inefficient heating or air conditioning system. And these systems, especially during the winter and summer months, make up a huge chunk of your energy consumption. So keeping your ducts properly sealed is hugely beneficial. It’s a great way to guarantee that you won’t be wasting energy every time you run your heating and air conditioning, and you could be throwing away up to 20% of the energy you’re using on these systems. Our Envelope specialists can make sure your ducts are in perfect condition and your Central A/C or heating system is as efficient as possible.
Indoor Air Quality
If your duct work isn't properly sealed, your ducts can also have a negative impact on your indoor air quality (IAQ). Whether it’s getting into your ducts through your heating and air system, or through detachments where your ducts run through an outdoor area (i. e., a crawl space, basement, attic, or garage), there could be potentially harmful substances being circulated through your home. Pet dander, dust mites, or other pollutants can all cause health problems. This is especially bad for children or elderly people, or anyone who already experiences asthmatic symptoms or allergies, which can be triggered or worsened by poor indoor air quality. You may be able to identify whether your indoor air quality is poor and not based on recurring health symptoms. Some that are associated with poor indoor air quality include:
Our Envelope Specialists can determine if tears in your duct system are causing problems for your indoor air quality, and exactly where they are. Then we can thoroughly repair the system.
Some homeowners may be able to repair parts of their duct system on their own, but our professionals can be much more thorough, accurate, and effective. If you’ve tried to repair your ducts on your own but haven’t seen a change in your energy efficiency, call our professional Envelope Specialists for an inspection and repairs. We can make sure that all of the ducts are properly sealed, and are as efficient as possible.
