Taking good care of the air duct

In Fort Worth, TX, my buddy and I experience four seasons and a wide range of weather conditions, then the summers are hot and humid while winters are cool and rainy, then my associate and I rely heavily on the a/c and furnace, while the heating and cooling units split the workload, the air duct operates day in and day just about year round.

This concealed network of pipes is responsible for removing stale air and introducing clean, conditioned air, because the duct system is hidden inside walls, ceilings, the attic and crawlspace, it’s straight-forward to ignore! In the majority of homes, the air duct accounts for up to 30% of energy losses.

Cracks, holes, gaps and other imperfections allow the heated and cooled air to escape. These same flaws draw in unconditioned, potentially polluted air and it gets distributed throughout the home! High daily energy bills, unpleasant odors, contaminated air, temperature swings and repairs can often be blamed on faulty air duct. I make sure to have the air duct tested every couple of years. While duct sealing and duct cleaning are an expense, these services are cost-effective, and properly operating air duct allows the a/c and furnace to run at peak efficiency. It ensures that the maximum amount of heated and cooled air reaches the destination and that this air is clean. When the air duct operates at its best, I don’t need to vacuum or dust as often. My family suffers from fewer colds, flu and headaches. My associate and I sleep better at night and have more energy during the day. Because my buddy and I use less energy, our apartment is more environmentally responsible.
