With today’s high-energy costs and the likelihood future costs will only increase, homeowners are looking for ways to save energy. In most homes the costs of heating and/or cooling their homes account for at least 30% of their energy consumption.
Installing new and more energy efficient systems is one way of saving money. However, if there is substantial leakage in their air duct system much of that savings is lost. Other than large obvious openings in a system, most leakage comes from hard to see or locate areas of a duct system. Without special equipment and established procedures it is often difficult or impossible to find the source of many leaks.
