You know that the energy efficiency of your home is directly tied to your HVAC unit, and the ductwork in your home is a huge component of that. You’ve been looking for the best, most cost-effective ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your utility bills, but options like total system replacement, AC repair, or heating repair don’t fit your needs or budget. Improving your duct insulation could be the perfect solution for you.
Your ductwork wraps throughout your whole home to carry conditioned air to your spaces, and any leaks or areas lacking insulation, like attics or basements, can make a significant impact on your home’s energy efficiency. And what you are able to save in energy costs by improving your ductwork will easily pay for the cost of the project itself. Pursue better comfort for your home. Read on to learn more about how our duct insulation and sealing services could benefit you.
HOW DUCT INSULATION AND SEALING AFFECTS ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Duct issues cause uneven temperatures throughout the house, slow or lagging heating and cooling, and high energy bills. The underlying issue for all of these problems could be duct leaks, ductwork that’s lacking insulation altogether, unbalanced airflow, or dirty ducts blocking airflow. Take your attic, for example, since it’s likely you don’t have much insulation in your attic. If you have exposed ducts or duct leaks in the attic, your air conditioning unit is going to have to work twice as hard to push cold air through channels that are going to allow the air to heat up before being delivered through the vents. Duct insulation saves your air conditioner from having to make this extra effort by keeping the air at a constant temperature as it travels through.
You can imagine how this increases your energy bills over time, sometimes drastically. And on top of improving your home’s energy efficiency, new duct insulation is an opportunity to improve air quality in your home. The contents of a dirty, blocked duct system are all being pumped into your home. So before pursuing full air conditioning services, evaluate whether your home could benefit from this service.
DUCT INSULATION AND SEALING SERVICES
We combine insulation and sealing services to fully remedy duct damage or inefficiencies. Heating and cooling can be lost through conduction, or energy transfer, in this case to your walls or the material of the ducts themselves, in which case, improved insulation is the solution. However, you’ll experience even greater heating and cooling losses when your ductwork has holes that allow air to escape in greater quantities. This problem will require sealing.
Our team at Carden Heating & Cooling, Inc. will test your ducts for any airflow issues, ensure that joints are properly connected, and determine the best course of action for your unique situation. This service is intended as a supplement to a functional heating air conditioning system. If you suspect that your energy losses could be caused by a larger system issue, make sure to look into HVAC replacement, AC repair, and heating repair services.
We serve Birmingham and the Shelby County, AL areas. If you’re in Pelham, Helena, Chelsea, Calera, or any other part of Shelby County, get in touch with our team today.

Our customers speak for us
They were lifesavers in the midst of one of the hottest days of the summer. Very detailed in helping me understand the issue and rapidly resolving it. Kyle was great! Thanks Carden Heating & Cooling!
We have used Carden Heating & Cooling for 20 years. They do regular maintenance on our personal units as well as all our new home installs with our construction company. When my mom’s old dinosaur finally died (after they patched it for years) I called & they came! They were out the next day with a new unit & had her up & running. Their customer service is 2nd to none. From Sara & Amanda in the office to Simon & each of their highly trained technicians, thank you for a job well done!
Carden is a great company, they have been doing the maintenance on our 2 units and are always very communicative and on time. They also did a duct test, duct repairs and installed a ductless HVAC unit and we couldn’t be happier with their results and the service. I highly recommend them!
