Air ducts are the V in HVAC; they distribute heated or cooled air to every room in your home. If you experience hot or cold spots in a particular room or area in your room, it might mean your ducts have sprung a leak. Don’t just kick up the thermostat to get more cold air — this will cause your air conditioner to work harder and will greatly increase your energy consumption and your energy bills! Instead, call Bardi to schedule a duct inspection and sealing.
According to Energy Star, almost 20 percent of air that moves through a home’s duct system is actually lost due to leaks, holes or poorly connected ducts. To combat this problem in Atlanta homes, we’re offering 10% off duct sealing services through the month of May.
When your ducts have holes or aren’t connected properly, two things can happen: cold air leaks out or hot dirty air gets sucked in from attics and crawl spaces. This air is wasted and isn’t distributed through your home. Duct sealing repairs holes and cracks and ensures that all the ducts are properly sealed together to prevent leaks. This will reduce your monthly bills and help prolong the life of your air conditioner because it won’t be working as hard to keep your house cool.
How can I tell if my ducts are leaking?
In addition to having rooms that are harder to cool or experiencing random hot or cold zones in your home, the following can also indicate leaky air ducts:
- High utility bills in both summer and winter.
- Rooms that are always stuffy or uncomfortable.
- Ducts are located in the ceiling or attic, or in a crawlspace or garage. If you see tangled or kinked ducts or ducts that have separated, you definitely need repairs and sealing.
While the weather is still mild, schedule a Bardi AC inspection today. We’ll make sure your unit is in tip-top shape to keep you cool all summer long. Our skilled technicians can make repairs and even replace old units with new, energy-efficient models. Something as simple as swapping out an air filter can drastically improve the performance of your air conditioner, and Bardi technicians have these and more spare parts in their trucks to make such quick fixes.
