Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
To greatly increase the efficiency of all forced air heating systems use aluminum duct tape and tape all joints in the ductwork The hot air ducting from the furnace right to the register in the floor or walls should be air tight to keep heat from escaping .Also the cold air returns and all associated ducting should be taped at all joints to ensure maximum air flow . Taping all ducting will not only provide more heat to all rooms of your house it will also produce less dust from leaking cold air ducting which sucks in air and dust from areas typically not cleaned (wall and floor cavities) . I did this in my older home and found I had to close off some registers because of the huge increases of volume which provided extra heat volume for the rooms that needed it.The house is now consistantly warm in all parts
