Ducts by Treat’s Heating & Cooling
Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home and if they are poorly sealed or have leaks they are likely going to result in higher energy bills. Your home’s duct system is a network of tubes that are located in the walls, floors and ceilings that carry the air from your furnace and air conditioner to each room.
If your ducts are leaking heated air into unheated spaces it could start adding a lot to your electrical bills. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces are usually cost effective. If you are installing a new duct system, make sure it comes with the insulation.
Sealing ducts to prevent leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an attic or crawlspace that is vented. If the supply ducts are leaking, heated or cooled air can be forced out of unsealed joints and lost. In addition, unconditioned air can be drawn into return ducts through any unsealed joints.
Minor duct repairs can be easy to make, but you should have a qualified professional from Treat’s Heating & Cooling come to your home or business to ensure the proper materials and processes are being utilized.
The first step should be checking the ducts for air leaks by first looking for sections that should be joined but have separated and then look for any obvious holes. Another option is having supply and return registers installed in rooms (especially basements) after converting the room into a living space.
