Is There a Leak in Your Comfort?


We’re not talking about your secrets getting out, but rather the heated air! Your hard-earned energy dollars go toward running your heating system throughout the winter, but what if you were only getting half of that comfort? Or less? It could happen if the ductwork of your HVAC system has a leak.

Luckily for New York City and long Island homeowners, there are ways to determine if you’ve got a leak in your home! Keep an eye out for…

High Utility Bills

You probably know about how much it costs you to run your heating system during the winter - so it’ll be easy to notice if your utility costs spike suddenly.

Uneven Temperatures

Leaks within the ductwork can prevent the air from reaching certain areas of the home. If you notice some rooms are being heated while others aren’t, there’s a chance that the air is escaping before reaching the area!

Dust Accumulation

While air can escape through duct leaks, the dust within the walls, ceilings and your attic can get in! This will lead to your home accumulating more dust than usual, especially when your heating system turns on.

If you think you’ve got a leak in your home or heating system, ask your local Bioheat(R) Fuel dealer for recommendations on how you can locate and fix it for better comfort and energy savings!
