High Efficiency Green Ductwork in Niceville, FL and Surrounding Areas
Green technology has been and will continue to be very popular. It’s even transformed the way that heating and air conditioning professionals install and repair air ducts. Innovations in green HVAC ductwork can help you save quite a bit of green as well.
What’s Green Ductwork?
Green HVAC ductwork doesn’t refer to a single improvement. It’s a combination of advanced materials and smart design changes that make air ducts more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Green ducts often incorporate recycled fibers and plastics that are used to build or insulate the air distribution system.
The term also encompasses low- and no-VOC (volatile organic compounds) sealants that prevent costly air leaks. Improved insulation and adhesives prohibit microbial growth that’s fueled by sudden temperature changes and condensation. Green materials avert common air quality problems while helping your family save money and breathe comfortably.
Benefits of Green HVAC Ductwork
- Energy Efficiency: Green air ducts are significantly more energy efficient. They feature robust insulating sleeves and temperature-resistant substrates that prevent climate-controlled air from escaping and driving up your energy bills.
- Air Leaks: Estimates show that 30 percent of heated and cooled air escapes through loose connections and cracks in the ductwork. We use the industry-leading AeroSeal system to plug holes from the inside. This also prevents dust from infiltrating your HVAC system and entering your home.
- Condensation: Well-insulated air ducts prevent condensation from forming when the cold climate-controlled air collides with the warm temperatures in your attic or crawlspace. Exposed air ducts often drip condensation, which causes water damage, creates safety concerns or contributes to microbial growth.
- Germs: Damp microclimates that exist within your HVAC unit and air ducts allow growth and allergens to proliferate. We use antimicrobial sealants to prevent these unwanted germs from gaining a foothold in your ductwork and affecting your air quality and comfort.
Green Ductwork Installation and Repairs
We install green air ducts made from recyclable or recycled materials. To prevent leaks, we use top-quality sealants and antimicrobial insulation that keeps the conditioned air where it belongs so that you can start saving money immediately.
If you’ve been battling hot and cold spots, excessive energy bills and air distribution problems, have us inspect and test your ductwork. When air leaks consume large amounts of energy, we use the nationally recognized AeroSeal system. It plugs leaks using an aerosol-based sealant that flows to areas where they are present. The material plugs gaps up to five-eighths of an inch wide. We’ll fix or replace other ductwork sections if they can’t be sealed.
