Ducts that are located in unconditioned spaces (attics, crawlspaces, garages) are a primary source of inefficiency in many homes, even new ones. Supply ducts that aren’t properly sealed leak conditioned air, air you paid to heat or cool, to the outside. Return ducts that aren’t sealed pull unconditioned air into your HVAC equipment causing it to be less efficient. On top of that, leaky ducts cause pressure imbalances in your home that can exaggerate natural ventilation and cause your home to lose even more heat to outside.
Damaged or disconnected ducts only amplify the problems above.
The good news is that duct sealing is relatively inexpensive and as a result is often the most cost effective energy upgrade you can make, with a payback of only a few heating seasons.
