Get Perks That Ductwork Sealing Offers

Get Perks That Ductwork Sealing OffersThe ductwork in your home HVAC system is the air distribution network that brings heated or cooled air to all parts of your home. Air and energy leaks in the ductwork system can be responsible for many expensive and potentially dangerous problems in your home. Here are some of the benefits you’ll get from ductwork sealing.

  • Decreased home energy bills: Since all of the air produced by your air conditioner or heat pump travels through the ductwork, any leak within that system can result in the loss of air you’ve already paid to heat or cool. Leaky ductwork can account for losses of 20 percent or more of the air flowing through them. Not only does this waste energy, it also drives up your heating and cooling bills as your HVAC system works harder to compensate for the lost air. A well-sealed ductwork system will save energy and hold in all the air flowing through it.
  • Improved indoor comfort: If conditioned air is escaping from your ductwork, it won’t be able to heat or cool certain sections of your home. By sealing your ductwork, you will ensure that heating and cooling will be distributed evenly to all areas of your house. Sealed ductwork is also less likely to let dust, particles and other airborne pollutants back into your home.
  • Better safety: Leaky ductwork can be a danger if it draws potentially harmful exhaust gases back into your home. Carbon monoxide is a common exhaust gas produced by the combustion of fuel. This gas is particularly dangerous since it is cannot be detected by human senses. Ductwork sealing prevents backdrafting of carbon monoxide and other harmful gases and vapors.
  • Less environmental harm: By improving HVAC efficiency with duct sealing, you use less fuel and energy to heat and cool your home. This reduces demand on local utility companies for electricity and other energy sources.
