How Ducts Can Save You Money on Your Energy Bills

Did you know that 45% of the average home’s energy costs are from its heating and cooling system? Upgrading your HVAC system to a more energy-efficient one is a great way to reduce your monthly energy bills. However, there are other things you can do to even reduce your energy costs even more.

One of these is ensuring your home’s duct system is not leaking. Ductwork that is leaking air into unheated ductdirty_1_01spaces can add hundreds of dollars to your heating and cooling bills every year! Whether heated air is lost through leaks like unsealed joints, or colder air enters the home through the same unsealed joints, your furnace will need to work longer and harder to keep your home comfortable, costing you money!

Energy Saving Tips for Your Home

Here are some tips to help you ensure your home’s ducts are not costing you money.
– Check your ducts for leaks.
– If sealing ducts with tape, use heat-approved tapes like mastic, foil, or butyl tape; and choose a tape with the Underwriters Laboratories logo.
– Hire a professional to install supply and return registers for all finished living areas, including finished basement rooms.
– Install a carbon monoxide detector if you have gas (or other fuel-burning) equipment like furnaces, stoves, or other appliances, or an attached garage. Poor operating ducts can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
– Hire a professional to repair your ducts and ensure they are properly insulated. You can lose up to 60% of your heated air before it reaches your registers if your ducts are not properly insulated.
