The dead of winter is when homes have the highest energy demands of the year. The cost of heating a home accounts for over 34% of all annual utility usage.
It just stands to reason that if you’re going to the trouble and expense of delivering heated air to your home, then you want as much of it as possible to arrive inside.
As heated air travels from the furnace through the ductwork and out to the vents, a lot of heat can be lost in the transportation, sometimes up to 30% loss simply from leaky ducts.
That’s why it’s so important to inspect all the ductwork and seal any leaks to increase efficiency, keep you comfortable, and save those much-needed energy dollars.
