Hidden in your walls and ceilings, lurking above your head and behind your paintings and family photographs, the ducts in your home are working hard to keep you comfortable. What can you do to make your heating and cooling system as ecologically friendly as possible, while also lowering your energy bills? Hader, Cincinnati's best in duct sealing and HVAC systems, suggests getting your ducts checked out by professional heating contractors.
By having your ducts sealed, Energy Star estimates you can increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems by 20%. That increase in efficiency means your furnace and air conditioning unit will not have to work as hard to heat and cool your home, and less fuel and electricity used by your furnace and air conditioner equals lower utility bills.
Proper duct sealing can also improve the environment in your home. Rooms that were once stuffy or that were impossible to keep warm will have clear functional ducts that will keep them toasty warm in the winter and refreshingly cool in the summer. Well-cleaned and sealed ducts also reduce the amount of dust and other pollutants in your home. Improperly sealed ducts can even have dangerous repercussions if a back draft causes carbon monoxide or other unhealthy chemicals to be forced into the air inside your residence.
