Having Problems With Your Ducts? Consider Duct Sealing
Ductwork plays a very important role in the heating and cooling of your home. If you notice that the house isn’t as cool in the summer or as warm in the winter as it should be, or if you are experiencing higher energy bills than usual, it might be time to check your ductwork for leaks. Duct sealing will help keep your home comfortable and provide a few other benefits along the way.
Leaky ductwork prevents proper air circulation in your home which may cause rooms to be too warm in the summer and too cool in the winter. Duct sealing will allow for even air circulation which provides a more comfortable environment for you and your family.
If there are leaks in your duct work there is a chance that gasses like carbon monoxide, that are released by your HVAC system as it runs, may be blown into your living space. Sealing leaks in the ductwork will prevent any dangerous gasses from reaching you and your family.
Reduce Energy Costs
Leaky ducts allow air to seep into crawl spaces or ceilings which means you are paying to heat spaces where you and your family are not living. Sealing your ducts will prevent such leaks and help reduce your monthly energy bills.
Improve Air Quality
If your ductwork has leaks insulation, allergens, molds, dust particles and fumes from other areas of the home may be drawn into your living space. Properly sealed ducts will improve the air quality and reduce the amount of pollutants that are able to enter your home.
Help the Environment.
Duct sealing allows your HVAC system to run more efficiently which reduces the amount of pollution your system released into the atmosphere.
