Are Leaky Air Ducts Causing Higher Heating Bills

When was the last time you had your air duct work inspected?

If you can’t remember, it’s time to have them checked again. A complete furnace inspection may be the best idea. Why is it so important to have your ducts checked? Because leaky air ducts account for 25 to 40 percent of all conditioned air that is lost, causing your heating bills to skyrocket this winter.

When your air ducts leak, your heater can’t run as efficiently.  What this means to you is you have to crank up the heater in an effort to keep your house warm  and comfortable because so much of the air is escaping and going to waste. This leads to higher energy bills, but it can also cause extra wear and tear on your heating system, which can lead to costly repairs and shorten the lifetime of your heater.

This is just one of the reasons why it is so important to have your entire heating and air conditioning inspected annually by a professional. A professional will be able to identify any air duct leaks.  They can fix them and improve the overall efficiency of your heating and air conditioning.  This will improve your comfort and save you money.
