Properly sized, sealed, and insulated HVAC ducts increase the efficiency of your HVAC system by 20 percent, reducing the costs of utility bills. Forced-air heating and cooling systems use ducts to distribute air evenly throughout the house. System performance issues are often caused by leaks or bad connections. Despite thermostat settings, a house with inefficient ducts will feel stuffy and uncomfortable.
The heating and AC service technicians at RAS will assess the condition of your duct system and identify leaks, holes, and poor connections. Whether the system is in a conditioned or unconditioned space, we guarantee your ducts will be sealed and insulated. In some cases, your system may benefit by adding or replacing ducts to achieve optimal comfort and air quality.
