You’d think twice about putting a new engine in an old car right? But many households do not take this same approach when it come to their heating and cooling systems. They purchase new, high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment and then attached it to clunker of a duct system. The equipment may heat and cool the home, but the system never performs at its full potential. The fact is, many forced air duct systems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 20%.
The EPA’s ENERGY STAR program recommends that you have your duct system checked, either during an equipment replacement or a service call. Ask us about this when you call to set up your next appointment. By fixing your ducts, you could save up to $140 per year in energy costs.
