If you have a forced air system in your home, your ducts are used to distribute conditioned air to every area in your home. If your ducts are not properly sealed and insulated, you could be shortening the life of your equipment, while also be paying too much for utility bills.
Your furnace and air conditioning system is one of the most expensive components in the makeup of your home. If your ducts are not properly sealed and insulated, your system could be running more than it needs to, causing you unnecessarily high utility bills. There is a simple test you can do to see if you are paying too much for your heating and cooling bills. First, check to see if you have any duct work in your home that is in your attic or crawl space. (Unconditioned areas) Second, if you find duct work in those areas, does the duct work have any insulation on it, or can you see bare metal? If you see bare metal, approximately 20% of the air moving through those ducts you could be escaping through holes or poor installation.
