Force air heating and cooling systems might test well in a laboratory under perfect conditions, but in the real world can experience leaks and poor connections. According to Energy Star®, 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. Inefficiencies like these can greatly impact duct system performance and comfort, as well as energy and money savings.
This article explains how sealing ducts can make or break your air handling systems efficiency. Read the full article here.
