Proper Duct Work
Having a properly designed duct system can be more important than the type of unit or the SEER rating!
At Integrity Air Conditioning & Heating, our goal is to help you enjoy a more comfortable and efficient home, and that’s why we offer duct insulation among our many HVAC services.
If duct leakage is reduced, cooling and heating equipment can be downsized for additional savings. Reducing leakage can also increase cooling and heating output at registers.
An enormous waste of energy occurs when cooled air escapes from supply ducts or when hot attic air leaks into return ducts. Recent studies indicate that 10 to 30 percent of the conditioned air in an average central air system escapes from the ducts.
APS recommends R-6 or better – we use R-8 duct insulation for our desert climate. With AC duct insulation, you may be able to save an additional five to six percent on your air conditioning bill.
