The ductwork that runs through the walls and ceilings of a home is an essential part of the comfort system. Without correctly installed, maintained, and repaired ducts, a forced-air heating and cooling system will lose its energy efficiency, wasting money and leading to poor indoor comfort. However, since the ducts are out of your sight, it’s often easy to forget their importance and know when they need service, such as insulating them.
Keeping the ducts properly insulated is important for maintaining the energy-efficiency of your HVAC system. If you have ducts that are losing excess energy during winter and summer, you should contact Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Bloomfield, MN for insulation services for the ductwork. Our indoor air quality specialists are experienced with providing high quality duct insulation that helps homeowners keep their heating and air conditioning systems working at their best.
The Importance of Duct Insulation
To maintain high efficiency for a forced-air heater or air conditioner, the air that travels along the ductwork must neither lose nor gain heat from the outside. However, because the ducts pass through areas of the house that do not receive direct heating or air conditioning (such as closed-off spaces between walls) it is very easy for them to lose energy. During the winter, the ducts will start to lose heat to the cold around them, and in the summer the high temperatures will warm the ducts and the cooled air inside. Either situation will make your home less comfortable as poorly conditioned air exits the vents.
This loss of energy will also mean your heater or air conditioner will need to work harder to reach its target temperature, and you will experience much higher bills for comfort. You could also risk repair needs and early aging for the system because of this overwork.
