For Homeowners

You never really think about the hidden aspects in your home…

They just work, and help make your space the place you call home. Upstairs, downstairs and from one end to the other your home should be a comfortable retreat from everyday life. But, your duct system impacts your lifestyle more than you’d think.

Your house was designed to have a balanced air delivery system, which keeps temperatures consistent, keeps your home well ventilated and allows your HVAC system to work at maximum efficiency.

Did you know an outdated, poorly sized or under-insulated duct system can leak up to 40%? Sending all that treated air into the hot attic, into the wall cavity or even outside, making it a significant energy and comfort drain.*

If you’ve never had your ductwork inspected or replaced, or it’s been a few years since you did so, it’s a good idea to schedule an inspection. Typically, if your house is more than 10 years old, your ductwork is probably inefficient.

Here are some signs to look for:

  • Poor airflow: Outdated ducts are often too small (especially if you’ve updated your air conditioner or furnace) hampering airflow.
  • Uneven temperatures: If you have hot or cold rooms in your home, your ducts could be losing heating and cooling power due to leaks or lack of duct insulation.
  • High utility bills: Old ducts – due to leaks or depending on the material – can hamper your home’s heating and cooling system, causing it to waste energy.
