• Your ductwork carries hot and cold air to the rooms throughout your home so it makes sense to insulate your ducts to keep the air as cold and hot as possible on its journey there. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces usually saves money and if you’re buying a new system, look at pre-insulated ducting. Ductwork can waste your energy dollars if ignored
  • Ducts also can waste energy through leaks which allow air to escape before it reaches its destination. Sealing your duct leaks is important, especially if the ducts are located in an unconditioned area such as an attic or crawl space. Look for sections that have separated and, of course, holes. Because traditional duct tape loses its adhesive quality relatively soon, experts recommend using mastic or other heat-approved tapes
