Getting your ducts in a row can improve air
Q: We had a handyman doing some work around our house last week, and he told us that he thought many of our problems with uncomfortable rooms and high energy bills were the result of duct leaks. He then said the biggest thing to worry about was potential backdrafting problems when we use our fireplace or gas stove, and we should get the ducts fixed right away. Was he trying to scare us or is there something here to worry about?
