According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 1/3 of the air homeowners pay to cool and heat the typical home, leaks through holes and gaps in the duct work.
If air leakage wasn't bad enough, uninsulated air ducts housed in unconditioned attics also cause enormous energy waste. During the winter, the heated air blown through the metal ducts loses temperature as it runs through a freezing cold attic.
During the summer the process is reversed. The cold air that comes out of the A/C unit is heated as it runs through ducts housed in a scorching hot attic.
That means that if you have unsealed and uninsulated ducts running through your attic, the cool or heated air hardly makes it in to all the rooms in your house. Your HVAC system is working much harder than it should, and you might be experiencing a lot of discomfort in certain areas of your home.
