Your HVAC system works hard every day to keep your home cool during the hot summers and warm during the cold winters. Your system is more than just the machines, however, it is also the ducts that transport that conditioned air through all the rooms in your home. Ever had a hot room in the summer when the rest of the house was cool? Or been freezing in your bedroom in the winter while your kitchen was toasty warm? Airflow is very important for effectively conditioning the air your home. That’s why investing in properly sized and installed ductwork is so important.
There are many aspects of your ductwork that need to be taken into account in order to maximize your comfort and keep your AC system running smoothly. When you are having ductwork installed, it should be properly sized in order to provide your home with the proper cooling and heating requirements. Undersized ducts can cause tremendous strain on your system while oversized ducts can increase operational costs.
If your ductwork is incorrectly sized, it can have a negative impact on the comfort of your home. Not only that, but it may lead to a lengthy list of potential problems with your HVAC system in the future. You may experience excessive noise, elevated humidity, indoor fan motor failure, and more.
Our skilled heating and cooling technicians carefully measure the required CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) for your home to ensure the ducts are sized correct. CFM measures how much air your AC system can produce per minute.
In addition to proper sizing, installation by trained and qualified technicians is also critical. Properly installed ductwork will keep the temperature in your entire house comfortable and consistent. Shoddy installation, however, can cause problems. The seams between duct pieces is sealed with aluminum tape and can separate and allow your conditioned air to leak through the holes into your attic or crawlspace wasting your hard earned money. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, “the HVAC system in the majority of older residences is the biggest single energy consumer in the home, accounting for as much as half of a home’s total energy usage.”
