How Duct Leaks Affect Your Comfort (and Bank Account)

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

If you currently own and operate a whole-house air conditioning system, like so many of us here in Torrance, then you know all about ducts. They’re made out of sheet-metal or flexible tubing, and they are responsible for bringing your indoor air to the AC unit and for distributing the cooled air back throughout your living space.

Even though your HVAC system contains an air filter, this may not be effective at reducing some of the most harmful contaminants—which are often too small for the average home filter. But installing a new indoor air quality system or seeking IAQ services may do the trick.
