Your Home’s Air Ducts and Your Utility Bill – What You Need to Know

This entry was posted in HVAC Maintenance on by .

It’s that time of year when air conditioning isn’t just a refreshing option. Arizona homeowners know that without the continuous hum of their air conditioner, indoor temperatures can quickly climb to uncomfortable levels. And, with around-the-clock air conditioning comes higher energy bills. In fact, it’s very common for electricity costs to jump by 50 percent or more during the summer months. While turning off the air conditioning certainly isn’t an option, there is another way to effectively lower costs.

Many homes have a hidden HVAC problem that causes energy waste and higher-than-needed energy bills. What is it? It’s old ductwork.

In many homes, older ducts have leaks and creases which enable cool air to escape to the outside or internal areas that don’t require conditioned air. Outdated ductwork can also cause unequal cooling throughout a home and increased humidity, as well as musty, foul odors. Yuck!

If your monthly electricity costs seem to be skyrocketing, your ductwork could be the culprit. It’s time for a home energy audit. At Cool Blew, we start with a thorough inspection of your home’s ductwork. If leaks are detected, we will provide you with a detailed quote on air duct sealing.
