For example, a couple of weeks ago I was working on a job in Rockingham that required me to climb into the roof of a standard 4×2 home with ducted air conditioning.
Whilst running cables required for some electrical work, I noticed that one of the duct work was not properly connected to a vent, leaving a large gap and therefore most of the cool air was actually blowing into the roof instead of the house!! The roof space was certainly nice and cool J
This is a major case of wasting electricity, I can’t even imagine how much this fault had added onto the poor owners electricity bill!
After pulling this ducting back into place, I notified the owner and advised him to get this fixed as soon as possible.
So the next time you are receiving a high electricity bill, the reason might be quite simple and you won’t need to call an electrician straight away –
Stick your head up in the roof and check that your ducting is connected properly.
