Best Air Duct Service – Griffin, GA
Solving Duct System Problem’s can make a major impact on the performance, comfort, and cost to operate your HVAC system
A large amount of time and money is spent on discussing the value of new Hi-efficiency equipment. A very common problem found today is duct systems were either poorly designed; or originally planned for a heat only application. Adding to this problem is the fact most duct systems can not deliver the correct amount of supply or return air.
The results are higher than necessary utility bills caused by an inefficient system that makes it difficult to keep your home comfortable. That new Hi-efficiency Air Conditioner will never deliver its full potential if the duct system it is connected to is not doing its part.
There are several ways to make your duct system better.
Sealing Leaky Ducts can make a major improvement in the performance of any Heating & Air Conditioning Systems; it improves the ability to deliver air where it is needed.
According to Georgia Power…
“20-30 percent of the air that moves through the the ducts is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections”.
Air that is lost to the attic or crawl space has to be replaced from “somewhere”. That somewhere is most often from undesirable areas like every crack and crevice of you home that air can infiltrate. A tool we use called a Duct Blaster can measure the leakage before and after repairs to in order measure the improvement. This machine can also quickly help to determine if the effort to improve the existing ducts is worth the investment. Sometimes replacing the problem is a better answer.
Adding Return or Supply Air: Because this can improve and solve many system problems most individuals choose to address it. The lack of the correct amounts of return and supply air duct or grill openings is a very common problem. Because of this it can make it appear as if that “old unit ” is not performing well. By using the correct tools we can determine the amount of return and supply air that is delivered by your system. We can provide improvements that results in better airflow and comfort for your family.
The benefits you will receive by finding and resolving these problems include: quieter operation, better airflow, more even temperatures, fewer equipment repairs, longer life of your equipment, lower utility bills and, best of all, greater comfort.
Duct System Improvements
Most homes use a forced-air heating and cooling system with ducting to distribute the conditioned air throughout the house. According to Georgia Power, 20-30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections. Most duct systems do not have the correct amount of supply or return air ducts. The results of this are higher than necessary utility bills and a duct system that makes it difficult to keep your home comfortable.
Proper sealing and ensuring the correct sizing of your home’s duct distribution system can significantly improve airflow. This offers many benefits such as:
- Savings – Properly sealed and sized ducts often pay for themselves in energy savings by reducing energy usage. This means you save money.
- Comfort – With a duct system that is sealed and delivering the correct amount of air, hot and cold spots are eliminated.
- Indoor Air Quality – By sealing ducts the risk of pollutants entering and circulating through your home is reduced.
- Safety – Leaking ducts can cause gases from gas-operated appliances to be drawn back into living spaces. Duct sealing decreases this risk of “backdrafting”.
- Environmental Protection – Using less energy helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, These emissions are associated with natural gas, LP gas, electricity generation and distribution.
