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
Are you considering a new Hi-Efficiency HVAC system? A lot of time and money is being spent on looking at the value of Hi-Efficiency Systems. Duct systems that are poorly designed or originally planned for a heat only application are causing major problems. Adding to this problem is the fact most duct systems can not deliver the correct amount of supply or return air.
What are the problems customers are seeing? Higher than necessary utility bills top the list. Inefficient systems make it harder to keep your home comfortable. Your Duct System needs to do its part to ensure your Hi-Efficiency system can do its best.
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 by improving the ability to deliver air where it is needed.
According to Georgia Power…
“20-30 percent of the air that moves through the ducts is being 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 your home that air can infiltrate. A tool we use called a Duct Blaster can measure the leakage before and after repairs in order to 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 also solve many system problems most individuals choose to address it. The lack of 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 result in better airflow and also more 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. 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 – Eliminate hot and cold spots by sealing and also delivering the correct amount of air.
- Indoor Air Quality – Eliminate the risk of pollutants circulating in your home by sealing your ducts.
- Safety – Leaking ducts can cause gases from gas-operated appliances to be drawn back into living spaces. Duct sealing decreases this risk of “back-drafting”.
