In a typical forced-air heating system 30 to 40% of the heated air is lost through leaks in the duct system. A close inspection and repair is necessary to determine the best course of action to repair or replace leaky ducts. Other issues include poorly joined ducts and bad layout or design of the system. The result is higher than average energy bills and difficulty in maintaining your home at a comfortable temperature. Often times there will be an inconsistency of temperatures walking from room to room.
Sealing the ducts is a first step to lessening air leaks. Additionally, ducts can be wrapped in insulation to maintain heated temperature for distant rooms where the air taking longer to arrive. At times the ducts are badly sized for the furnace system or have numerous leaks and it is more cost effective to replace the duct work throughout the home.
