In order for your heating and air conditioning system to function properly, multiple parts need to work together.

Your ductwork is an integral part of your heating and air conditioning system. Today Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is going to talk about some of the most common problems that people experience with their ductwork.
Leaky Air Ducts
Let’s start by talking about leaky ductwork. It is estimated that your home loses 20-40% of the air that circulates though your ducts. The more that you lose through leaks in your ductwork the more inefficient your heating and cooling system is. In addition to decreasing your efficiency, leaky ductwork also allows outside pollutants to enter your home. Having Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning seal your ducts will help keep your home at a more comfortable temperature and save you money at the same time. In addition to leaky ductwork, you can also have problems with the seals on your ductwork. If the registers for your heating and air conditioning system are not sealed tons of air will escape before it ever reaches the rooms in your home. Just like leaky ductwork, loose seals prevent your heating and air conditioning system from working efficiently. You will spend more money than is necessary heating and cooling your home if you do not have Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning come out and properly seal your ducts.
