While you may not think too much about the ducts in your home, they actually serve a pretty important purpose. Without them, you wouldn’t enjoy the benefits of your heating system in the winter and your air conditioning system in the summer and you also have no way to vent harmful gasses and exhaust.
And because your ducts do such significant work, keeping them properly insulated is very important as well. Ducts pass through places in your house where they may be exposed to all types of extreme elements. In the winter, the colder air from outdoors may surround the ducts, and in the summer, heat and humidity can impact their performance as well.
Getting the Most from Your Ducts
Your ducts do a remarkable job of carrying warmed and cooled air throughout your Tacoma, WA area home, which is why it’s so important to protect them. You probably don’t even realize how much heat you lose in the winter as warm air passes through your ducts on the way to various other parts of your home. If there is nothing separating your ducts from the cold outdoor air, the air passing through them will quickly lose some of its heat.
The same is true in the summer, as cooler air is warmed by passing near the hot, humid air from outside. Moisture that can collect on your ducts in both the summer and the winter will also cause damage and corrosion, and can even create cracks in your ductwork. And, of course, that will only lead to an even greater heating and cooling loss.
Insulate Ducts for Efficiency
For all of these reasons, insulating your ducts is the best way to make sure you’re always getting the most out of your heating and AC system. In fact, you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised at how your monthly energy bills go down once you have a proper insulation in place around your ducts.
And you’ll simply be much more comfortable inside your home, as your insulated ducts are able to provide a more even distribution of your temperature controlled air.
