The Benefits of Duct Sealing

One of the easiest ways to save money on energy bills is to seal your air ducts. This simple tune-up can be performed by any reliable air duct cleaning or AC service provider, and has many important benefits:

Safety

Water heaters, dryers, and furnaces release combustible gases, including carbon monoxide. Leaky ducts create “backdrafting,” where these gases leak into your home instead of being released outdoors. Duct sealing pushes gases outside and keeps your family safe.

Increased Efficiency

Sealing ducts improves your home’s efficiency by up to 20 percent. Leaking ducts need more energy to function at normal levels, which increases heating and cooling gains (and bills). Duct sealing also reduces humidity and the risk of mold and mildew.

Improved Air Quality

Leaky ducts cause the air in your home to carry harmful pollutants such as car exhaust, pesticides, insulation fibers, and more. Sealing your ducts prevents these particles and debris from circulating through your home and contributes to a clean and healthy home.

Superior Comfort

Hot or cool spots are common problems in many homes. One cause is leaky ducts: when they cannot circulate properly, hot or cold air is not evenly distributed. Duct sealing corrects this problem.

Environmental Protection

Burning fossil fuels contributes to polluted air and acid rain. Because sealed ducts burn less fuel and use less energy, they are easier on the environment than leaky ducts. By sealing your ducts, you reduce your carbon footprint and help support environmental sustainability.

    • Service was completed in a timely manner and my technician was extremely knowledgeable. All services were explained to me prior to being completed as far as the need and cost are concerned. My air conditioning unit has been problem-free all year and I believe it’s because of the professional maintenance that I get yearly from Precision Air.
