According to PG&E, you could save up to 36% on annual cooling costs with a high-quality air conditioning installation. As you’re preparing to build a home or upgrade your home’s HVAC system, don’t forget the ductwork. According to ENERGY STAR®, up to 20% of your home’s conditioned air could be lost through leaky or poorly designed ducts. Monarch Home Services is the team to trust when it’s time to repair, seal or replace your central California ductwork.
If a new HVAC system is not in your budget, you can reduce duct leaks using DIY duct repair. Clean the area to be repaired with soapy dishwater and allow it to dry completely. Use Underwriters Laboratory UL-181 approved aluminum sealing tape, purchased at a hardware store or home and garden center. Apply several passes of tape, slightly overlapping each time. Use a putty knife to adhere tape firmly and create an airtight seal. If you are not comfortable making DIY duct repairs, contact the Monarch experts for competitively priced duct sealing.
