Arizona is a wonderful place to live, but the truth is, it can get VERY hot! And as long as the a/c is working, most people don’t think twice about anything HVAC related. It’s only when the air conditioning unit does not come on, or blows hot air, that most people notice anything about their heating and air conditioning systems. But there is more to a building’s a/c unit than just if it comes on when it’s hot. For instance, how efficiently the air is moved around is actually an important part of the HVAC system.
Across the country, heating and air conditioning accounts for an average of 44 percent of the energy in U.S. homes. That’s a lot! Hotter climates, like Arizona, can nudge that figure up even more. When it comes to the quality and design of the ventilation system, the opportunities for improvements and saving are substantial. Reducing the bills while improving comfort is the benefit of making sure ductwork for the HVAC system of a building are perfect. Any Arizona resident interested in reducing energy bills and making their air conditioning system more efficient should have their a/c ductwork inspected by a professional and qualified HVAC company, and Delta Mechanical is company to call for any Arizona ventilation concerns.
Buildings with central heating and a/c systems rely on ductwork to distribute warmed or cooled air throughout the unit. But because these insulated ducts are out of site, most people never pay any attention to them. Industry experts estimate that as many as 70% of all homes with central air have poorly installed ductwork. They may leak for years without anyone noticing. Some reasons for leaks are: nails protruding in the attic, joints may separate over time, or poor connections to the vents in the walls. Other problems with ventilation might occur because of blockages caused by kinks, or pinches, to the ducts, or twists or sags. Poorly designed air conditioning ducts are doomed from the beginning. They may be either to small for the amount of air they are supposed to carry, or may distribute the air unevenly, or perhaps the air conditioner is too small or large for the ducts and causes improper pressure levels for the ducts. Any inadequacies of the duct system will lead to wasted energy and higher bills.
