Know your ducts
In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. But in typical houses, about 20% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
Some signs that your home may have leaky, poorly insulated, or inefficient ducts:
You have high summer and winter utility bills;
You have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool;
You have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable:
You find tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
Benefits of duct design and sealing
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
