Ventilation Solutions in Corona, CA
Are you experiencing the same temperature in every room? Too often, that’s the case with duct systems, which can lead to lower air quality in your home.
Consider the following questions:
- Does anyone in your home suffer from allergies?
- Have you noticed higher than normal energy bills?
- Have you noticed more than average dust in your home?
- Does anyone in your home have breathing complications?
- Do your rooms heat unevenly, meaning one’s hot while another’s cold?
If you can answer yes to any, or all, of these questions, it might be time to call Friends and Family for ventilation services.
Why You Need Ventilation Services from Friends & Family HVAC
Did you know that the average duct system installed before 2005 leaks about 30 percent of the conditioned air into the attic? Dirt and dust can be brought into any home through the attic or crawl space. And, researchers have proven that only 20 percent of the air that comes into a home comes from around windows and doors.
Unfortunately, that means that 80 percent of the air comes in from attics, crawl spaces, and garages. And duct leakage can exacerbate it. When your ducts are not sealed, you are not only leaking your conditioned air out of the ductwork into the attic, but you are also pulling in the dirt, dust, fiberglass, and whatever else may be in your attic into your ductwork then into your home. We call this the Venturi Effect.
Friends & Family HVAC really does put the V in ventilation. When it comes to ductwork, a one size fits all duct doesn’t always fit all rooms or homes. Your unit puts out a certain amount of CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) and it’s our job to designate not only how much air each room gets using proper duct sizing and dampers, but to make sure that your whole home is properly balanced. This means that your whole home will heat and cool evenly.
