4 Benefits of Properly Sealing Your Ducts
Because air ducts don’t cause obvious problems when they’re having issues, they’re often overlooked by homeowners. However, leaky ducts can cause higher energy bills and problems with rooms being too hot or too cold. Consider the following four benefits of proper duct sealing.
1. Even Heating and Cooling Throughout the Home
Is one room in your home significantly hotter than another? One of the reasons this may happen is because your ducts aren’t sealed and insulated properly. By sealing and insulating your ducts, you can prevent having too hot or too cold rooms.
Beck Cohen offers duct sealing services in the Charlottesville, VA area. Our NATE-certified technicians prioritize getting the job done right the first time.
2. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Pollutants both outside and inside your home can get into the ducts where they are circulated throughout the home when the heating and cooling system operate. Examples of pollutants that can get inside leaky ducts are secondhand smoke, garden chemicals, dust, mold, pollen, and household cleaning agents.
3. Saves Money on Heating and Cooling
Ducts that aren’t sealed decrease your heating and cooling system’s efficiency by as much as 20%. Decreased efficiency results in higher energy bills. You will likely notice a decrease in your monthly energy bills after getting your ducts sealed. The energy savings will pay for itself over time.
4. Allows for a Smaller System
Having your ducts sealed enables you to install a smaller, less expensive heating and cooling system. When you combine the money savings of increased efficiency and being able to choose a smaller system, it’s worth it to have your ducts sealed.
