Today’s modern heating and air conditioning systems operate at a higher efficiency than ever before. However, if your ductwork is not insulated, you are losing conditioned air, energy efficiency and increasing wear and tear on the HVAC system. Insulated ductwork installed by Jackson Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning will ensure the delivery of conditioned air without the temperature or energy losses.
It is essential for each component of the heating and air conditioning system to adhere to or exceed the industry standards.Ductwork that is not insulated, and/or has broken seals can be responsible for the loss of up to 20% of the energy required to produce conditioned air. Our certified technicians specialize in the professional installation and repair of insulated ductwork systems. Duct insulation is designed to provide the best possible adaptation to conform to ductwork, providing the highest insulating properties possible.
Without proper design, installation, maintenance and insulation, the ductwork can lose conditioned air through the following means:
- Cracks and broken joint seals along non-insulated ducts can lose up to 30% of energy.
- The US Department of Energy estimates that up to 30% of energy used to create heating and cooling is lost through the conduction of heat on the duct surfaces. Warm air traveling through the ducts loses heat by contact with a cold duct surface. By the same process, air conditioned air traveling through the duct is warmed by the duct surface.
- Radiation is the process where heat radiates outward. When heat warms the ducts surface, the heat radiates outward resulting in the loss of energy.
Insulated ductwork is an effective means of minimizing the loss of conditioned air. Our experienced technicians can provide your existing or new ductwork with professional insulation of ductwork ensuring your home receives the conditioned air produced by the HVAC system.
