Is Your Hayward Home Comfortable? Ductwork Affects Comfort & Efficiency

As a leading area service provider of Hayward duct cleaning services, the team at Ortiz Heating and Air Conditioning know the importance of your ducts in relation to energy-efficiency and home comfort. If your East Bay home doesn’t seem as comfortable as it should be or your energy costs seem out of line, it could be that your duct returns aren’t operating efficiently.

Most homeowners never give their ducts a second thought, but the returns do play an important role in how effectively and efficiently air is distributed throughout your home. If your ducts are dirty and dusty, the air inside your home is more polluted than it should be. While you can rely on us for exceptional service, we also want to educate you about the importance of the design of your ductwork.

For optimum comfort and system efficiency in your home, here are 3 facts you may not know about ductwork design:

Sizing of ductwork. Your East Bay HVAC experts should rely on recommended specifications to determine ductwork size. These specifications outline how to determine heating and cooling needs on a room by room basis, taking factors such as air distribution distances and blower performance into account.

What are your needs as far as heat gain/loss is concerned? Your ductwork may need an overhaul, in which case your technician will rely on blueprints and detailed sketches to help determine precisely what your system needs in order to enjoy maximum effectiveness and efficiency.

Calculating heat gain/loss room by room. There are certain specifications used that comply with HVAC industry standards today. Your HVAC contractor should calculate the heat gain/loss according to these specifications to properly compute air distribution and system sizing.

Do you need duct cleaning services in your Hayward home, or is it time to have your existing ductwork evaluated? At Ortiz Heating and Air Conditioning, we also recommend sealing and insulating any ductwork that is exposed to prevent air loss. You would be surprised at just how much this can improve not only the air distribution inside your home, but overall efficiency, saving you money.
