Duct leakage causes conditioned air to escape before it reaches certain rooms, causing comfort and energy problems. Leaks in return ducts suck dust and dirt into the system.
Missing or inadequate ductwork insulation works against the HVAC system during heating and cooling seasons, forcing the HVAC system to heat or cool the ductwork before proper temperature air can reach a room. HVAC costs escalate, and some rooms stay too hot or too cold even when the HVAC system is operating.
Unbalanced air flow due to register location causes some rooms to get too much heat or cooling, while other parts of the house get too little.
Energy is wasted when conditioned air leaks out of ducts, and when unconditioned air leaks in. Leaky ducts also create indoor air quality problems by drawing attic, basement and crawl space air into the air supplied to the living space.
Proper sizing is very important to the performance of your system. If the duct work is over or under sized there will be a noticable difference in tempatures in your conditoned spaces.
