Ductwork Replacement for Improved Energy Efficiency and Comfort in Orange County Homes
Since ductwork is typically hidden behind walls or in the attic, it is often overlooked and forgotten by most homeowners. However, your ductwork plays a major role in the performance and efficiency of your heating and air conditioning system. In fact, we've found that in many of the older systems we've tested, homes were losing between 20-30% of its heated or cooled air through leaky, badly designed, and/or insufficiently insulated air ducts. Such high rates of air loss are problematic because your central HVAC equipment must work harder to heat and cool your home, resulting in higher utility bills and more wear and tear on your equipment.
Properly Designed & Sealed Ductwork Can Dramatically Reduce Central Heating & Air Conditioning System Air Loss
At AC Cool, Inc. we provide energy-saving ductwork replacement services for homes throughout Orange County. Because most homes built prior to 2004 weren't required to meet today's strict air loss standards, these homeowners can often see huge improvements in the level of comfort throughout the home and in the system's efficiency, resulting in a significant reduction of their monthly utility bills.
Anytime we are hired to replace a heating and air conditioning system, our experienced and factory trained Comfort Advisor will perform an in-home assessment of the existing system, its layout, and the ductwork design. In addition to doing an energy audit of the home to see if the unit is properly sized, the Advisor will also conduct an air loss test on the ductwork. If there's significant air loss, he will take photos of the ducting using an infrared camera to find out where it's leaking. Then we systematically seal, repair, reinforce, or replace all ductwork that we can access until we achieve the lowest air loss rate possible. By using these practices and being extremely thorough, we're often able to get the air loss down to 5 or 6% or lower, far surpassing the state requirement of 15%.
