Cooler temperatures have arrived here in Colorado, and you’re probably thinking about ways to reduce your home’s energy usage. There are several ways to do this, from insulating your attic to installing a smart programmable thermostat.
One way to lower your energy consumption is sealing your ductwork. As much as 20 percent of your conditioned air may be escaping via leaks in your ducts, so it’s clear that fixing those problem spots can have almost immediate advantages.
Once all of your ductwork is sealed, insulate it. Again, this is a job that you might want your HVAC technician to handle. Insulation is especially important if you have ductwork running through an attic or crawl space.
Sealing your ducts is one of the most important things you can do to save money. If you have any questions about duct sealing or duct insulation, contact the Rheem Pro Partner.
