Heating and air conditioning systems are complex pieces of machinery. They provide comfort to you and your family no matter what the outside temperature. There are several different parts of this system, all of which are important to keep well maintained. One way to boost the effectiveness of your system is to insulate the heating and air conditioning ducts. This is an easy way to help maintain the comfort level of your home and possibly save money too.
- Wrap the seams of the air duct with special tape. This will prevent any air from escaping as it is pumped through the duct work. Overlap the tape and make sure there are no bubbles or gaps between the tape and duct, for best results.
- Purchase specially made duct insulation. This is available already cut into easily manageable pieces that have a thin plastic cover on it.
- Install this using the same foil tape you sued to cover the seams. This insulation will keep the hot air hot and cold air cold, with less seepage as the air travels through your home.
Insulating your ducts is not a terribly complicated job, but one that can make a big difference in the comfort of your home and the price of the utilities you pay. If you choose to do this job yourself, use caution, and turn off your heating or air conditioning system before you work with the ducts or if your in the Roseville or Sacramento region go to heating and air Roseville CA to learn more about our repair services.
