One sure fire way to raise the cost of cooling your home in the summer is to have ducts or venting that is failing. In Rocklin you should inspect your air ducts at least once a year. The Sacramento area can heat up in the summer and cool down in the winter, working your ducts to the max. You need to make sure that these ducts are moving air efficiently. You want to check all the connections to make sure they are sealed and have no gaps or completely separated. Inspect every run to make sure all ducts have no pinches in the ducts. Sometimes air ducts can sag over time; strapping can fail and cause the air ducts to be pinched, choking off air or restricting the air flow through the air duct. In some cases you might find an air duct crushed or smashed. When air ducts become smashed your air flow is then blocked, which will cause your air conditioner to work harder and shorten its lifespan dramatically.
Critters love air ducts for the same reasons we do. When it gets hot in Rocklin, critters find ways to damage your air ducts to get access to cool air. During the winter these same critters look to your air ducts to stay warm. Little critters or varmints can not only damage your air ducts, they live in them going the bathroom and in some cases dying in them. In return you get to breath in their lifestyle. An efficient air duct system is crucial in keeping your cooling bills down and getting the maximum life span from your Rocklin Air Conditioner.
