AC by Jay Offers Duct Testing and Sealing

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 23, 2011) - When it comes to their Phoenix heating and cooling systems, most homeowners don't give them a second thought if they seem to be operating properly. Even though it might seem like everything is running smoothly, there could be something going wrong behind the scenes and could be costing hundreds of dollars every year. Over 85% of homes (old and new) have leaky duct work that Air Conditioning by Jay can help fix.

Phoenix Local Utility Companies (APS and SRP) are offering rebates of up to $250 per system to test and seal existing duct work. Leaky duct work means that air is releasing from a Phoenix heating and air conditioning system into areas other than a house. Air is also being sucked not only from the attic, but also the outdoors forcing that air throughout a home. So, not only is one wasting forced air, but the air that one is breathing probably isn't that clean.

Since most duct systems are installed in attics and walls of houses, they are hidden from view and rarely inspected. As much as 33% of a heating/cooling system's airflow could be leaking through ducts causing a loss of comfort and system capacity. The impact is most severe in ducts installed in attics where temperatures can exceed 140 degrees in the summer. On average, almost 15% of cooling capacity is wasted due to duct leakage. While there will always be some leakage, homes with properly sealed ducts can often reduce leakage 3 to 5%. In Arizona's desert climate, on average 50% of an annual energy bill is spent on running a heating/cooling system.
