A typical home in the Fresno area will lose 20 percent of the air traveling through its ducts. This is air you have already paid for so it basically means that money is leaking from your home. When considering your ductwork design and installation, you need the professional assistance to make sure that the ductwork is laid out efficiently and that the installation is done properly.
Inspections to Ensure Efficiency
A professional will perform a load calculation of each room in your house to determine how much energy is needed to properly control the temperature of your entire home. The natural airflow of the house as determined by walls and ceiling will also be taken into consideration. After this is done, a proper ductwork design and installation can be planned.
The installation step is especially important because much of the ductwork will be inaccessible after installation. Ductwork will be concealed in walls and ceilings, and if the seals of the ducts are not as airtight as possible, air will leak into areas that do not need it. This leads to long-term increases in your energy bills.
