How to Streamline Your Air Ducts


Your heating and air conditioning ducts are often the last things on your mind – particularly when they’re pumping comfortable air into your home. But did you ever give a thought as to how much air and maintenance they take up in your home?

If your home is equipped with individual heating and air conditioning systems – like a furnace and an air handler – you have two completely separate air duct system taking up space in your attic.

Sure, out of place out of mind, but did you know you could break the mold and create a unified system in your home? Read on to find out the benefits and options you have as a homeowner.

Enjoy All The Space Savings

nsplashIf you have two complete heating duct and AC duct systems in your attic you may have little more than a crawl space for storage.

This is why one of the major perks of upgrading to a single system is the added space you can enjoy in your home.

If you’re looking forward to the storage with enough room for activities, the added space can go a long way.

That added square footage can also add value to your property and improve the airflow throughout your home. Why? Because you’ll be using your ductwork for both heating and cooling, preventing the buildup of any dust or blockages that may be restricting the flow of air throughout your home.

When Should You Consider Upgrading to Central HVAC?

As any homeowner will tell you, the idea of dealing with an unforeseen expense can be as stressful as work. So why would you ever consider upgrading to a central HVAC system? The truth is there are plenty of opportunities to upgrade and great benefits you’ll enjoy from doing it.


  • Added Property Value: Live in a neighborhood where everyone’s still running separate systems for heating and cooling? Well with a central HVAC system you just became the more valuable home around.
  • Energy Savings: Central air conditioners are designed to be more energy efficient. This translates into plenty of savings year over year that can quickly pay for the cost of investment.
  • Cleaner Air: A major concern with separate AC and heating ducts is the lack of use. During the summer months, your heating ducts can easily suffer from a buildup of dust and bacteria. When the winter rolls around, all those impurities find their way into the air you breathe.

With one centralized ductwork system in your home, you can hack your heating and cooling, and enjoy comfortable air whenever you want it.

Choosing Central Over Heat Pumps

nsplashWhile some companies may try to tell you that heat pumps are more efficient than central air conditioners, the truth is they still use separate air ducts.

This translates into double the service cost to clean both, cutting into your savings regardless.

The most important thing to remember about your HVAC system is that you always want to work with a reliable heating and cooling contractor that puts your home and needs first.
