What's the Problem With Leaky Ducts?
After years of doing this work I now believe that fixing duct leakage is the highest priority item when it comes to reducing utility bills for homes in the upstate. Many homeowners assume their ductwork is sufficient and operating well but few take the time to inspect it. Extensive duct leakage has a direct effect on the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems because it requires them to run longer with more intensity in order to provide appropriate comfort levels. This results in more frequent breakdowns and a shorter lifespan. In addition to this, leaky ducts also pose a large health risk! Leaking duct systems can draw damp, musty, and moldy air into your home from the space below or heat and fiberglass from the space above.
