Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or insulated they
are likely contributing to higher energy bills.
Your home's duct system is a branching network of tubes in the walls, floors, and ceilings; it carries the air from your
home's furnace and central air conditioner to each room. Ducts are made of sheet metal, fiberglass, or other
Ducts that leak heated air into unheated spaces can add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills.
Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually very cost-effective. If you are installing a new duct system, make
sure it comes with insulation.
Sealing your ducts to prevent leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as
an attic or vented crawlspace. If the supply ducts are leaking, heated or cooled air can be forced out of unsealed joints
and lost. In addition, unconditioned air can be drawn into return ducts through unsealed joints.
Although minor duct repairs are easy to make, qualified professionals should seal and insulate ducts in unconditioned
spaces to ensure the use of appropriate sealing materials.
Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are required in new buildings in many states. They are highly recommended in
homes with fuel-burning appliances such as natural gas furnaces, stoves, ovens, water heaters, and space heaters.
An alarm signals if CO reaches potentially dangerous levels.
