Tame Runaway Power Bills With Tight Ductwork

Air ducts are used in forced air cooling and heating systems to supply conditioned air into a building. The ductwork is usually hidden in basements, attics, ceiling and inside the walls, which makes it almost impossible for the average person to notice any air leaks. When heated or cooled air leaks, not only will your utility bills skyrocket, your home will also become less comfortable to live in. For the HVAC system in your home to work efficiently, you will need air tight ductwork to deliver the air.

The following are signs of leaks and how to deal with them effectively to ensure that you have tight ductwork.

Warning Signs of Leaks

According to the DoE (United States Department of Energy), the average home loses around 20% of air through gaps, holes, cracks and poorly connected sections. You may be losing air in the ductwork if:

– Some rooms in the house are cooler than others

-You notice excessive dust build-up inside your home

– Your utility bills are highest during summer and winter

– You have flexible ducts that are tangled or kinked

How to Deal With Leaks

Since air ducts are usually concealed in hard-to-reach places, repairing them can be somewhat challenging, but there are some things that you can do to improve airflow. The best thing for you to do is seal the ducts that you can reach using mastic sealant or metal tape. You can fix disconnected sections using metal fasteners. For improved energy efficiency, add some insulation around the leaks you plug or seal

The Importance of Having Tight Ductwork

– Sealing leakages will help to significantly reduce your monthly energy bills

– Tight ductwork delivers cooled or heated air more efficiently, thereby making rooms in the  house feel more comfortable

– Tight ductwork will help to improve the quality of air in the house, thereby making your home safer and healthier to live in

July '22: Welp, of course the older AC goes out in the Phoenix summer on a long holiday weekend but Hobaica saved our holiday! Called the emergency line and they were able to get a technician (John M) on site within 2 hours. John was very helpful in explaining the situation and helping evaluate the options, very knowledgeable, informative, efficient, and of course top notch customer service.As I've used Hobaica twice in less than a year on two systems, I'll be relying on them in the future for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs.Nov '21: Of the 5 - 7 separate HVAC companies that came to give a quote, they were the only ones to provide more than one option based on the specific needs of the space and its use.My only criticism is regarding specifics of installation that I now have questions on, that should've been hammered out beforehand.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
