Living in High Springs, there’s no moment of time that we don’t appreciate the work that our HVAC unit does. While we rely so heavily on our heating and cooling, it seems as though we never truly know what every piece contributes to the overall process. Over time of having an HVAC unit and working with it here and there, we learn more about the refrigerant, the tubing and what noises it should and shouldn’t be making, but we never really seem to learn about the air ducts. This is a prime example of out of sight, out of mind. In order to get the absolute most out of the air ducts in your home, here are a few things that you should consider.
Design Your Ducts
Air ducts truly do differ from one another. While not exactly snowflakes, the air ducts in your home will be completely different from those of a commercial building and even those of your neighbor. In order to truly get the most out of an air duct system, it’s always worth considering investing in a custom duct design for your home. This provides a more accurate fit for the needs of your home and the air that your unit is pumping into it. For some homes, the only way that air ducts will perform their best is through a custom duct design.
Seal Your Ducts
Leaks in air ducts are almost expected, but that doesn’t have to be the case. In order to have an efficient home and get the absolute most out of your HVAC system and the contribution of your air ducts, make the investment in getting your air ducts sealed. This will create a solid flow for the air to pump through. If your air ducts are older, the chances of them leaking is even more likely, in which case this is something that you should definitely look into.
Test Your Ducts
There’s no way to know how well your air ducts are working until you’ve had them tested. This requires the work of a professional that truly knows how efficient air ducts can be. Too many people will tell you that air ducts are never going to be entirely efficient, and that’s the best you’re going to get, but at North Central Florida Air Conditioning, Inc. we always strive to provide better.
