You probably know that using an old, inefficient heating unit will cost more to heat a home or business than a newer, high-efficiency furnace, boiler, or heat pump. But did you know that having leaks in your ductwork could cost you extra money on your heating bill every month even if your actual heating unit is in excellent shape? What happens is this. Your heating unit expends energy to heat air which is then disbursed through your home. When you have leaks in your ductwork, a portion of that heated air gets lost every single time the heat comes on—and that really adds up! Your heating unit then has to work overtime to make up for the loss, expending more energy, and costing you extra money! If you’re wondering if your ductwork may have leaks, the heating technicians at Energy Pro Heating recommend asking yourself the following questions.
- Does my heating bill always seem higher than it should be?
- Does the air in certain rooms of my home feel uncomfortably stuffy?
- Can I see exposed ductwork in the garage, basement, crawlspace, or attic?
- Does my ductwork have tight bends in it?
- Are certain rooms in my home impossible to get to a comfortably warm temperature?
- Is my furniture constantly dirty or dusty?
If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, you most likely could benefit from duct sealing. And, you’re not alone; almost all ductwork in Virginia Beach has at least some leaks. At Energy Pro Heating we can test for ductwork leaks, find their precise locations, and then seal them up. You’ll not only see improved energy efficiency and lower heating bills, but you’ll also notice better air circulation because there won’t be as many contaminants sneaking into your home via leaks in the ductwork.
