You might not be familiar with the inner workings of the systems that run your home, but you’ll know when you’re comfortable, if the utility bill is sky high, or if the air inside is aggravating allergies and asthma problems. Oftentimes, issues such as these can be traced back to your ducts.
Ducts are used by your heating and cooling system to distribute comfortable air throughout your home. But according to the EPA, in typical houses, 20% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes and poorly connected ducts. Duct sealing is a practical solution for these losses .
When your duct system is properly sealed, here are some ways you can benefit:
- Comfort – You’l be less likely to experience common comfort problems, such as rooms that are too cool or too warm.
- Indoor Air Quality – Sealed ducts reduce the opportunities for air pollutants to enter your home. They can also reduce the risk of a “backdraft” of combustion gases coming into your living area from gas appliances such as water heaters, clothes dryers and furnaces.
- Save Money – Sealed ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, lowering energy bills.
