Have you been experiencing higher than normal utility bills in your Hampstead, North Carolina, home? The culprit could be leaky or damaged ductwork. Poor ductwork can be responsible for as much as 20 percent of the wasted energy that your system produces. Here’s how duct cleaning and sealing can lower your energy bills:
Ductwork Issues That Lead to Poor Efficiency
There are a number of ductwork problems that can lead to reduced efficiency of your system. Poorly insulated ductwork can cause conditioned air to escape. Blockages can cause restricted airflow and result in your system working harder to get your home to the desired temperature. Damaged or broken connections can leak out a significant amount of energy and let in pollutants that can settle in your ductwork. As a result, they can reduce airflow and drive up your energy bills. They can also strain your system and cause it to break down.
How Duct Cleaning Can Improve Efficiency
During your duct cleaning and sealing, your service technician will perform an inspection, clean the ductwork and apply the sealant. This process can improve the efficiency of your ductwork by:
- Identifying damage in the ductwork, such as leaks or cracks, where energy can escape
- Removing buildup and blockages that can restrict the airflow
- Identifying design issues that can affect air delivery
- Sealing up cracks, holes, leaks and damaged connections
The more efficient your system works, the less energy it’ll expend. As a result, you’ll enjoy significant savings on your energy bills each year.
