An investment in a new high efficiency heating and cooling system should save significantly on your utility bills. However, you won’t save much if your existing ductwork is in bad shape. A typical poor duct system really drags down the performance of new high efficiency equipment. Many buyers of new equipment have ended up with little or no savings.
Compared to before, many also find:
- Their home is less comfortable,
- There is more dust and summer humidity,
- Their new system is noisier.
Don’t let your old ducts keep you from getting the high performance you are paying for.
To ensure your new equipment saves money and works properly, slow down and become an informed consumer. Have your duct system tested for leakage, correct sizing, and correct insulation levels.
