There are plenty of reasons to do to make your home’s HVAC system more energy efficient, including, saving a significant amount of money on your utility bills and taking advantage of certain tax credits from the federal government under the Inflation Reduction Act (“IRA”).
Duct Sealing Can Save You Money
ARS/Rescue Rooter® offers duct sealing that is eligible for the tax credits offered by the IRA. Consumers may be eligible for up to $1,200 in tax credits on this service. Duct sealing also makes your HVAC system more efficient, resulting in less operational costs and extension of the HVAC systems life.
How Duct Sealing Benefits Your HVAC System
Because much of your home’s ductwork is out of sight, it’s easy to forget it’s there. That could cost you a lot of money and comfort, however, because it also means you won’t know if there are leaks in it unless you look for them.
Leaking ducts mean the warm or cool air from your furnace or air conditioner isn’t getting where needed. Instead, it’s being wasted inside your walls.
Having ductwork that leaks causes your HVAC system to run longer, increasing your energy bills, and wasting resources, which is why sealing can be so crucial for you.
Trust Our Professionals to Help Seal Your Ducts
Having professionals seal your ductwork ensures everything remains as efficient as possible. It keeps as much air as possible in your ducts until it comes through the registers. As a result, you and your family will experience greater comfort, and you won’t need to run your system as much. It also helps keep the air inside your home cleaner and reduces wear and tear on your equipment.
In addition to the tax credits under the IRA, sealing your ductwork also helps secure the overall energy efficiency of your HVAC system. Some of the most important ways it accomplishes this include:
Reducing leakage: The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to 30% of the energy being consumed by your system could be wasted because of air leaking from your ductwork. Properly sealing and insulating it ensures more warm or cool air makes it into your living spaces.
Improving airflow: When air flows through your ducts properly, your system does not have to work as hard. This reduces the energy needed to maintain the temperature you want in your home.
Minimizing heat loss: If your ducts are not adequately sealed, much of the warm air flowing into your home could end up warming the spaces under your floorboards or in your attic instead. This means your HVAC will be working harder for less comfort.
Reducing moisture: Humid air that comes through leaky ductwork can make the air inside your home muggy and uncomfortable. In turn, you’ll probably run your air conditioning more often to compensate, which increases your energy consumption and utility bills.
