Some rooms are colder than others If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be failing.

Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can keep your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with improved energy efficiency.
