3 Benefits Of Sealing Your Ducts

Posted on

If you have a central heating and cooling system in your home, you may want to consider having your ducts sealed. Duct sealing is essentially how your insulate your ducts. Here are a few of the benefits and changes you will notice in your home if you have a professional air conditioning technician seal, or insulate, all of your ducts. 

#1 More Comfortable Living Environment

Do you have a room in your home that always seems to be harder to heat and cool than the rest of your house? Do you have rooms that feel stuffy and like the air does not flow correctly? 

Those types of conditions are often caused when the ducts that heat and cool those rooms are not properly sealed. When your ducts are not properly sealed, air may be lost on its way to its final destination. Once your ducts are sealed, you should not experience these issues any longer. You should be able to evenly heat and cool all the rooms in your house, creating a more cohesive and comfortable environment in your home.

#2 Higher Air Quality

Does someone in your family suffer from asthma? Having improperly sealed ducts can contribute to their symptoms. When your ducts are not properly sealed, dust particles can get inside of your heating and cooling system. Additionally, fumes from household and outside chemicals can more easily enter your duct system. Poorly sealed ducts can contribute to lower air quality in your home.

By having your ducts properly sealed and insulated, outside contaminates will not be able to enter your ducts system as easily as they did before. This should help increase the air quality in your home. If anyone in your home suffers from asthma or other allergies, this should make your home a more comfortable place for them. 

#3 Lower Heating & Cool Bills

Do you feel like your heating and cooling bills are higher than they should be? Do you get letters from your electric company that show your home uses more energy than similar homes in your area? Part of your high energy costs could be due to ducts that are not effectively sealed. When your ducts are not effectively sealed, it takes more energy and effort for your heating and cooling systems to get your home to the desired temperature.

By properly sealing all of your ducts, the cool and warm air that blows through your ducts will be delivered more effectively to their final destination. Your heating and cooling systems should be able to achieve the desired temperature at a faster rate. 

If you have rooms in your home that never seem to heat or cool quite right, if you have high heating bills or if you feel like your indoor air quality is not where you want it to be, talk to an air conditioning specialist by sealing your ducts. Sealing your ducts will address these issues for the long-term.
