A well-designed, well-maintained air duct layout can improve the efficiency of your HVAC systems exponentially, dramatically reducing your long-term heating and cooling costs. It isn’t always easy, though. Minimizing energy losses in ducts starts from the initial design concept and includes everything up to performing repairs.
Choose An Efficient Design
If you’re building a new property or having your ductwork retrofitted, you have a lot of freedom with the overall design of your duct system. Take this opportunity to make sure you’re getting the most efficient design for your investment. You want a design that evenly disperses the air throughout your entire property without any air leaks and supports an even airflow that ensures ideal air pressure throughout your home or business. If you’re unsure what that looks like, feel free to contact our seasoned professionals at Tru Comfort Heating and Cooling for guidance!
Trust The Right Installation Professionals
Guaranteeing your air duct’s maximum efficiency requires a meticulous installation performed by an experienced professional. Regardless of what kind of configuration you’ve chosen (spider, perimeter loop, radial, or trunk and branch), the right installation professionals, ours, will know exactly what to do to get your new duct system set up quickly and maximize its proficiency.
Maintain Your Duct Health
Over time your duct system can become more susceptible to problems, including leaky unsealed joints and obstructions, because of standard wear and tear. There are, however, things you can do to prolong the health of your ducts. Ensuring your ducts are thoroughly sealed with help from maintenance professionals, keeping your vents clear of furniture and other objects that may reduce airflow, and cleaning out your vents regularly to prevent dust/debris buildup.
Invest In Upgrades
If your existing duct system is not functioning as efficiently as it could, there’s a good chance our HVAC specialists know of a few upgrades that can help. Our talented technicians can easily undercut doors to enhance air return, install jumper ducts, and even install fresh return-air grilles to increase airflow. Plus, we can make sure you have all the carbon monoxide detectors you need to protect your property from vicious gas leaks.
Learn How to Detect Damage & Know When You Need Repairs
Joint separation and holes are obvious evidence of air leaks, however, there will come a day when specially made tapes or even ‘duct mastic,’ the preferred DIY duct sealer, won’t be enough to cover the damage anymore. Damaged, inefficient duct systems cost property owners money, which is why sometimes you simply need to call in the pros for comprehensive support. Whether you have an air leak, poorly insulated basement ducts, loose vapor barrier, or flawed return registers, our HVAC specialists at Tru Comfort Heating and Cooling are here to save the day!
