Your home air duct system weaves throughout your entire house, circulating the air that flows in every room. So what happens when you have small cracks and gaps in your system that allow outdoor pollutants to leak through? Well, you could have a whole-house problem on your hands.
Not only can sealing those gaps improve your home’s air quality, it also offers several other benefits, including decreasing your overall energy consumption. Learn more below!
Benefits of Duct Sealing
Better Air Quality
When unsealed, things like dust, insulation particles and fumes from household chemicals can infiltrate into your living space. These irritants can aggravate your allergies and sinuses and taint your overall air quality.
Reduced Energy Expenses
Leaky ducts can reduce heating and cooling system efficiency by as much as 20 percent. The air you’ve heated or cooled disappears into thin air, which forces your HVAC system to work overtime. We’ll ensure your air is channeled to the right place.
A Safer Living Space
Your gas appliances release carbon monoxide and other gases through your home’s ventilation system. Leaky ductwork could cause those gases to “backdraft” into your living space rather than being expelled outdoors.
