Poorly designed or leaky ductwork is a common obstacle for Dallas soundproofing contractors to overcome, but faulty ducting may also be costing homeowners' money and comfort.
Online PR News – 26-May-2012 – Dallas/Texas – DALLAS, TEXAS-Homeowners' efforts at dampening sound in their homes could be sabotaged by side poorly designed or leady ductwork, which often contributes to a noisy HVAC system.
Leaky ductwork is a common problem and it costs homeowners more than frustration. A study from the California Energy Commission estimated that around 30 percent of the average home's conditioned air gets wasted because of leaks or poorly designed ductwork.
Other symptoms that indicate poorly designed or leaky ducts are high utility bills, excessive dust and chemical smells inside and big temperature variations in the home, for example, one room in the house that is much hotter than the rest of the house in the summer or much cooler in the winter.
It is often in the homeowners' best financial and health interests to have a professional investigate the attic or crawl space to learn more. Even Dallas soundproofing contractors may be able to diagnose problems with the ducting and offer solutions to quiet a noisy HVAC system and improve indoor air quality.
The ductwork may only need to be patched or insulated, but if a homeowner wants to replace it there are types of acoustical ductwork that significantly reduce the noise disseminated through the ducts when the HVAC unit is on. The extreme quiet makes it ideal for music studios, theater rooms, nurseries or home offices. Sound-reducing ductwork has a perforated inner core that allows the thermal insulation to absorb the noise.
Other types of ductwork are designed with antimicrobial technology to help improve the indoor air quality by helping prevent air contaminants like bacteria, fungi, mold and mildew from growing and being dispersed through the HVAC system.
