One of the ways energy loss occurs is through a home’s ductwork. Out of all the energy your home uses for heating and cooling, leaks in ductwork can contribute up to a 20 percent energy loss. This makes duct-sealing a proven way to produce energy savings. Without it, your HVAC equipment becomes inefficient, you see higher utility bills, and your home just isn’t as comfortable as it could be, no matter what the thermostat says.

A good furnace is like a trusted friend – especially here in the Calgary area. When the cold winds blow, your furnace is the main comfort standing between you and the winter freeze outside. But if your system is more than 10 years old, there’s a very good chance it’s approaching the end of its lifespan as an efficient unit. As a furnace ages, it requires more maintenance and repair, and ever increasing energy prices begin to show up in the monthly bill. Older furnaces just weren’t built with the energy-efficient technology we have today.

We’re all interested in finding ways to save money on energy costs, and homeowners know one of the best ways to cut down on energy use is by insulating and modernizing our homes. Windows, doors, walls, and attics are obvious choices when it comes to upgrading or insulation jobs, but don’t forget how much heated or cooled air is lost in your duct system, too. One university study found that 15 percent of the energy loss in a home can be blamed on the the ductwork.

Living or working in a home that does not have a properly functioning HVAC system can be an uncomfortable experience. Preventative maintenance for your HVAC system can ensure that there is proper ventilation in the building 365 days per year and that all problems are found before the system is in full gear for the extreme heat or the extreme cold. This typically saves homeowners thousands of dollars in repair costs.
