When you save energy, you save money. Check back here each month for new ways to make your home or business more energy efficient.
Air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, carrying the air from your home’s furnace and central air conditioner to each room. Ducts that aren’t correctly sized, sealed or insulated can add hundreds of dollars to your heating and cooling bills each year.
Fortunately, insulating and sealing ducts that are located in unconditioned spaces is typically very cost-effective. Be sure to hire a qualified professional to make any changes and repairs so they can test the duct sealing for proper airflow and fire safety. If you’re installing a new duct system, talk to your contractor about options for locating ducts in spaces that are already conditioned.
