The cooler weather is here, and in fact some of Massachusetts may have frost before the end of the week. It is almost time to turn on your heat. If you are starting to think about heating your home for the winter - HVAC tune-ups, ordering pellets, stacking wood - you may also want to think about insulating air ducts.
Adding insulation makes your home more energy efficient. Energy is usually wasted from your heating systems and as heat escapes from your home out of the attic. Well-maintained heating systems run more efficiently and waste less energy.
Ducts that move air to and from a forced air furnace or heat pump can waste energy. Sealing and insulating these ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating system by as much as 20%. Start with the attic and basement because these are areas where your ducts are often not insulated.
Sealing and insulating air ducts can improve their energy efficiency and keep warm air inside. Insulating your air ducts helps maintain the temperature of the air flowing through them and into your home.
