The Duct Leakage and HVAC Efficiency Connection

Even if you’re using one of the most efficient central air conditioners or furnaces on the market, there’s little you can do for your efficiency if you have serious duct leaks. Duct leaks typically don’t occur for many years after an HVAC system is installed, but that just makes it all the easier for them to sneak up on you. As duct leaks appear in the system, the energy and air you spend money on gets whisked away through those leaks. It’s estimated that up to 30% of air can be lost through leaks.

Signs you have duct leaks may include:

  • Increased Energy Bills: Cooled or heated air can be sucked up through leaks or disconnects. Duct sealing is crucial to retain that energy and keep your bills low.
  • Lowered Air Quality: Duct leakage can also bring in dust and dirt from the attic or crawlspace. These contaminants can be carried through your air circulation, those contributing to poor indoor air quality.
  • Uneven Air Flow: Duct testing can help you determine the airflow and loss through your ducts. If the airflow isn’t balanced properly, it can lead to rooms being treated unevenly, as well as cause large temperature swings from room to room.
