Your home’s ductwork delivers cooled or warmed air to the various rooms throughout your house, but if it’s not properly sealed, you can experience problems. In an average household, up to 20 percent of the conditioned air in your ductwork winds up escaping through leaks or improperly sealed duct connections.
Investing in ductwork sealing has numerous benefits, including:
- Savings on utility bills. Because so much conditioned air escapes through improperly sealed ducts, you can enjoy significant savings on your utility costs by investing in duct sealing. Over time, your utility savings may equal or exceed the price you paid to seal your ducts in the first place.
- Improved comfort. Sealed ducts help to eliminate problems with uneven heating or cooling in the various rooms of your home, and because they enable the smooth delivery of conditioned air, they help your home reach a comfortable temperature more quickly on a hot or cold day.
- Better indoor air quality. If you have sealed ducts, you can prevent a lot of dust from seeping into your ductwork, which will, in turn, reduce the amount of dust circulated into your air when you run your HVAC system.
- Enhanced home safety. In many homes, combustible gases and carbon monoxide are expelled through the duct system. If you have leaky ducts, you may end up recirculating these unwanted gases back into your home rather than eliminating them.
- Environmental protection. Producing electricity requires the consumption of resources and puts a strain on your local power grid. Sealing your ducts reduces the amount of energy you need to heat or cool your home, which in turn benefits the environment.
