In Home Flue Systems
Comfort Problems and Hidden Leaks
Over the average period of time that most homeowners will inhabit their homes,
thousands of dollars will be saved on total utility bills versus a non-ENERGY STAR
compliant home. Most homes have severely inefficient duct work and flue
distribution systems. Average inefficientcy is 25% to 40% or more.
Leaks in Ductwork
As noted above, distribution systems are generally "sealed" with "duct tape".
In an scientificially conducted test, testing several methods for sealing delivery
systems showed that "duct tape" performed the worse, dried up and was completely
Most all buildings and homes have cavities hidden from view that leak and waste
a serious amount of money in energy costs. Besides the obvious potential for harmful
intake of poor quality air. There are many possibilities and causes like: general
building and wall cavities, plumbing stacks, large gaps behind an exterior wall,
under walls, other venting penatrations, even under kitchen cabnets.
90% or more of all flue systems installed at code minimum standards and are
poorly contructed, poorly installed, leak, and are as inefficient as they can be.
Finding and fixing these are at the center of any realistic investigation into
tightening the gap between what is wasted, and what can be saved for a seriouly
lower energy cost overall, while providing ultimate comfort in your home.
