How Much Energy Is Lost Through My Leaky Air Ducts?

If you’re like most folks these days, then you likely care about the planet–and you also care about lowering home energy bills. To do this, you shut lights off when rooms are empty or it’s not necessary. You don’t run the water when brushing your teeth.

And you most certainly avoid wasting energy at all costs when operating the AC system, because let’s face it, even with the most energy efficient system, you’re paying for it!

So you’d likely like to avoid energy wastage, the type of wastage that occurs with leaky air ducts. If you’re asking yourself, “What’s an air duct?” You’ve got a lot to learn, so let’s get started, so we can help bring down those energy costs.

Where are my home’s air ducts located?

Chances are, the air ducts to your home are located somewhere in the attic, or in a crawlspace that’s not fun to venture through…let us tell you. But venture away we will if it means lowering a homeowner’s energy costs! 

Why spend a fortune investing in a new system, or the maintenance of a system, only to lose energy due to leaky air ducts?

If the air ducts are not sealed, this will lead to the escape of all that cool air your AC unit is blowing throughout the house. It means the system has to work harder to keep the home cooler, which = higher energy bills.

What does Uncle Sam have to say about all of this?

According to good ’ol Uncle Sam, a home with leaky air ducts can lose an average of 20-30% of home energy each and every month–now think about the savings if you seal those air ducts. Turn that energy percentage into the money spent each month on energy wastage. And then get ready to pick up the phone and call Comfort Services to find out how to get started on sealing the air ducts in your home today!
