Most home owners hardly ever think about the ducts in their home unless there is an issue. However, leaky ducts themselves are a huge problem in many homes and many homeowners are not aware of the potential danger and financial loss caused by this. John Lippert, a specialist in energy efficiency and renewable energy, wrote this great article about the threat of leaky ducts for the U.S. Department of Energy website.
- Leaky or damaged ductwork will leak conditioned air into the attic or crawlspace, costing you money and decreasing efficiency
- Backdrafting can draw carbon monoxide down your chimney, which can be very dangerous to you and your family
- Warm moist air can be pulled from outside due to leaky ducts, leading to mold and mildew in your home
- Duct tape IS NOT the solution for leaky ducts, leave duct sealing to the professionals
