Duct Insulation in Shreveport, LA by Hall's Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration
The majority of homes in the U.S. use forced-air heaters and air conditioners to provide them with comfort throughout the year. In these systems, a series of ducts serve to distribute the air to the rooms around the home as well as to draw air back into the HVAC system. Ducts are designed to maintain an airtight seal along their lengths so that the air pressure inside them will not drop. However, according the U.S. Department of Energy, ducts can still lose 20%–30% of their energy due to poor insulation—or no insulation at all.
You may be paying much more for heating and cooling your home than you need to be due to inferior duct insulation. Call the ductwork professionals at Hall's Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration to find out more about how we can increase the insulation for your ventilation system; that way you will keep the air inside the ducts warm during the winter and cool during the summer. We have technicians available in Shreveport, LA and the surrounding areas to assist you with whatever you require for a better insulated home ventilation system.

Why Duct Insulation Is Important
Today, most ductwork is made of sheet metal, fiberglass, or ductboard. These are materials that can easily conduct heat, which makes them prone to picking up heat from outside during warm weather and raising the temperature of the air coming from the air conditioner. This results in reduced indoor comfort and high air conditioning bills. The same problem will happen in colder weather, when heat easily escapes through the walls of the ducts. Not helping these problems is that the ductwork usually travels through spaces that are uncommonly hot or cold, such as between walls and through the attic. You might end up paying hundreds more each year to run the AC and heater because of poor insulation.
Duct repair and installation professionals can help put an end to this energy waste. They will look over your ducts and find where placing insulation sleeves will help them conserve energy. One of the most important places where they will focus their attention is on long ducts runs, which are the ductwork sections most prone to heat gain and loss.
Please do not attempt to insulate your ductwork as a DIY project. Haphazardly guessing at what type of insulation your ducts need and then wrapping fiberglass batts around them will rarely do any good. You need professionals familiar with both insulation and ventilation systems to do this job.
