Save Energy and Save $$$

If your home’s energy bills seem to be rising along with your thermostat setting these days, it may be time to perform a little home maintenance.  Energy costs are indeed increasing nationally, but with a few simple home improvement strategies you can reduce your energy costs, and still beat the summer heat!

Check out the condition of your heating and air conditioning system’s ducting.  Perhaps you have duct work in an attic, basement, or garage.  If so, examine the integrity of the connecting segments.  It is not uncommon for sections of ventilation ducting to weaken at section attachments, and separate, causing significant energy loss.  Typically duct tape will make a quick and solid repair if any sections of duct work have separated.

Be sure prior to re-taping any section of ventilation ducting together to thoroughly clean the attachment points before you apply fresh tape.  This will insure a long lasting, successful repair.  Also check and see if attachment screws are missing, or needed.

Checking out the condition of duct work, and making simple repairs is one thing but should it come to inspecting the mechanical health of your heating and air conditioning system, don’t take chances, not when it is as easy as contacting Handyman Headquarters.
