Save 20-30% on Heating and Cooling Bills with This Easy “Sweat-Equity” Project
Your home’s duct system carries the air from your furnace and central air conditioner or heat pump to each room. These ducts are typically made of sheet metal, fiber glass, or other materials that easily conduct heat. Ducts are also usually located in unconditioned spaces and unfortunately, many duct systems are poorly insulated, or not insulated at all.
- 10 – 30 % of the energy used to heat and cool the air in your home is lost to conduction through duct surfaces.
- Poorly insulated duct work results in hard to maintain temperatures in rooms served by long duct runs and can add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling expenses.
Improve Comfort: Duct insulation minimizes conductive heat losses and gains, allowing supply air to be delivered closer to desired temperatures. In winter, leaks of heated air will be reduced in rooms supplied with long duct runs. This can result in quicker recovery from night-time setbacks and a more consistent level of comfort throughout a house.
Save Money: The average homeowner spends over $600 per year on heating and cooling. Leaky ducts can reduce heating and cooling system efficiency by as much as 20 percent. Sealing and insulating ducts increases efficiency, lowers your energy bills, and can often pay for itself in energy savings.
Protect the Environment: Energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants, which contributes to smog, acid rain, and global warming. Simply put, the less energy we use in our homes, the less air pollution we generate. By sealing your ducts and reducing the amount of energy necessary to comfortably heat or cool your home, you can reduce the amount of air pollution generated.
Replacing Your Air Conditioning Filter
A dirty or compromised air conditioner filter can have a variety of negative effects on your air conditioning system as a whole. The primary effect is a decrease in overall efficiency and cooling capability. Pay attention to the rate at which your air conditioner cools your home. If your conditioner system seems to be working slowly or is not adequately cooling your air, you may need to replace your air conditioner filter.
A worn out air conditioner filter can also decrease the overall life expectancy of your air conditioner system. On top of this, your air conditioner may not be able to filter out harmful allergens and dust that can contribute to allergies and other respiratory conditions. If you or someone in your home is sensitive to air-borne allergens, check your filter periodically to best protect against allergies.
To keep your air conditioning system running smoothly and effectively, prepare to replace your home system filter every 2 to 3 months. Depending upon the air quality in your home and the amount of time that you run the system, this time may fluctuate. A business that runs the air conditioning around the clock may need to replace the filters every few weeks.
