Ducts are an integral part of your home’s entire HVAC system, and the quality of their installation can have a large impact on the overall efficiency of your home.
When installed properly, ducks efficiently carry air from your unit through the entirety of your home and don’t allow air to escape, conditioning the air and allowing it to move freely through the entire home. If the ducts aren’t properly installed, air can escape through gaps and cause your system to work overtime to condition the air, resulting in wasted energy and high utility bills.
Our company specializes in creating energy efficient homes and we are passionate about helping people in Northern California stay comfortable all year long and spend less money doing so. We offer a full catalog of home efficiency services, including installation and maintenance of energy efficient HVAC systems, installation and maintenance of solar panels, installing insulation, installing efficient doors and windows and much more.
Today we will give some insight into the duct installation process to give our potential clients an idea of how we go the extra mile to ensure their ducts work exactly as intended and allow their unit to use as little energy as possible to keep their homes at the desired temperature. We hope this gives you an idea of the care and expertise we bring to our HVAC system installations, and if we can help you ensure your ducts are perfect then please contact us.
Our team of professionals takes a couple important steps during the duct installation process which can make all the difference in the performance of your HVAC unit. The first is ensuring the connections at every point in the duct system are tight and free from gaps where air can escape. By checking every connection point and shoring up any potential weaknesses, the air from your HVAC unit only travels where it is intended to and the air you are paying to heat and cool stays in your home, rather than escaping elsewhere and putting strain on the unit.
We also employ a unique technique for duct installation which uses new improvements to the duct material itself: deep burying ducts. In recent years, duct manufacturers have begun using a material which keeps ducts from condensating and creating excess moisture. As you can imagine, moisture around a duct can be problematic, but today’s ducts don’t “sweat,” which opens up the option to bury them in insulation.
When we install ducts, we blow in insulation to cover the ducts and keep them from being exposed to the extreme heat which can build up in attic spaces. This insulation keeps the air in the ducts cooler, allowing your unit to work less to keep the entire house cool. The result is a noticeable difference in utility usage and easier cooling of the home.
If you feel your ducts are not properly insulated or you have any other home efficiency needs in Northern California, our courteous team of energy experts are here to help. To get started, give us a call or contact us online today.
