The Benefits of Sealing Your Ducts

The Benefits of Sealing Your Ducts

The ductwork within your air conditioning system has an important job to do. After all, the ducts are responsible for distributing fresh air throughout the rooms of your home.

While the ductwork is relatively tough, it is susceptible to damage over time. Things like animals, rodents, humans and general wear and tear over the years can leave your air ducts with holes or other damages. These damages can affect your AC and the overall comfort of your home. Fortunately, having your air ducts sealed touts numerous benefits and is an easy service your local AC professional can perform. Here are just three benefits of sealing your ducts:

Energy Savings

When air ducts aren’t sealed, they can leak air. In fact, according to Energy Star, leaky air ducts can reduce the efficiency of an air conditioner by up to 20 percent. Not only will air duct leaks reduce the overall comfort of your home, but all of that leaked air will have a negative impact on your energy bills. Having your air ducts sealed by a professional will increase the efficiency of your AC and save you money on your energy bills.

Improved Comfort

Inconsistencies in comfort are a common problem many homeowners experience. You might notice that some areas of your home are warmer than others, or perhaps you experience cold spots. In either case, these comfort inconsistencies are likely caused by leaky air ducts. When air ducts are properly sealed, cool and conditioned air leaks through the ductwork before it makes its way to the rooms of your home, ultimately causing inconsistent temperatures throughout.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Because you likely spend a good portion of your time indoors, it’s important that the air inside of your home is fresh and clean. Poor indoor air quality can wreak havoc on our health and cause of a variety of problems from allergies to more serious respiratory conditions. While you can’t completely stop pollutants from entering your air ducts, you can lessen the amount you’re exposed to by sealing your air ducts. When the air ducts aren’t sealed, pollutants from fumes, chemicals, household cleaners and more can easily enter the ductwork. Once these pollutants are in the ductwork, they can be dispersed throughout the rooms of your home. Having your ductwork sealed by a professional will halt pollutants from entering your ductwork and improve the indoor air quality in your home.
