Tiger Services has years of experience in San Antonio with ductwork sealing, repairs, and inspections. According to the Energy Star website (the ENERGY STAR program was established by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1992), in a typical house, about 20% of the air moving through your home’s duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poor connections. This lost air is lost heat or air conditioning which causes your utility bills to be higher and makes it difficult to keep your home comfortable. Tiger Services can:
Not sure if your air ducts are the problem? Consider a Comfort Survey & Energy Audit from Tiger
Over the years, air ducts collect dust and other impurities, decreasing the air quality of your home and affecting the efficiency of your air conditioning system, making allergies, asthma and other illnesses worse. It is also possible that your air ducts were originally improperly sized or poorly designed. Holes in leaking air ducts allow bugs from the attic to make their way into the rest of your house.
Increase Indoor Comfort Level - Sealing and/or insulating ductwork can improve the air temperature in rooms that are too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter.
Indoor Air Quality - Sealing ducts can help improve indoor air quality by reducing the risk of pollutants like household chemicals, insulation, and dust entering ducts and circulating through your home.
Saftey - Sealing leaks can minimize the risk of backdrafting when combustion gases like carbon monoxide from dryers, water heaters and furnaces get drawn back into the air in your duct system and circulated around your home.
Save Money - Since leaky ducts can reduce heating and cooling system efficiency by as much as 20 percent, sealing and insulating ducts increases efficiency, lowers your energy bills, and can often pay for itself in energy savings.
Protect the Environment - By sealing your ducts and reducing energy necessary to heat or cool your home, you can reduce the amount of air pollution generated by power plants that supply that energy. This will make our environment healthier.
