Air Duct Sealing Equals Energy Savings
Your air duct system can be notoriously leaky, but after much research AMERICAN CLEAN AIR, INC. has acquired the technology to seal the leaks and reduce energy costs. A typical duct system loses up to 30% of the air that moves thru it, in both heating and cooling. Not only is that a huge drain your finances, it impact the environment by causing excess carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
According to Energy Star, leaky ducts cause:
- higher heating and cooling utility bills
- rooms that are difficult to heat and or cool
- stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
Proper investigation and sealing of the ducts often discovers tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system. The correction of this issue alone will make the system more efficient and balanced. AMERICAN CLEAN AIR, INC. can seal your air ducts and reduce your energy costs and consumption. In many cases the costs are recovered in as little a one year.
Case Study: 2169 Square-Foot Home
In this example, this home has a forced hot air system that is powered by oil and has a leakage of 30%. In other words, 30% of your heat is lost out of the system.
After sealing this system we have reduced the leakage down to 5%. This equals a 25% energy savings and 9% carbon footprint reduction. But what does this all mean?
Let me give you a few examples of how you can look at this:
- 39 trees planted
- 2 less cars on the road
