High Energy Bills? It May Be Time to Get Your Ducts in a Row
Have you ever checked your ducts? Most homeowners haven’t. They just assume everything is fine, but in many homes, up to 33% of your heated or cooled air might not be making it to the rooms you need it in. Some of that cooled or heated air is going into the attic, crawl spaces, unfinished basements, and walls instead of into living spaces.
