Are you serious about saving energy or looking to improve the comfort of your Sarasota, Florida, home? Duct sealing may be the answer to your problem. A significant amount of conditioned air and energy escapes through leaks or improper sealing of your dutwork. Unfortunately, you may not notice this until you have a significant problem. At that point, you may experience higher energy bills and have difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature. Find out how duct sealing can improve the comfort in your home.
Improve Air Distribution
Your air ducts are responsible for delivering the conditioned air into the rooms in your home to achieve your desired temperature. Without proper sealing, much of the air can escape through the vents before it has a chance to reach your rooms. Sealing your ducts will ensure that all of the cool air gets where you want it. As a result, you’ll reduce the risk of receiving high energy bills and feeling uncomfortable at home.
Prevent Poor Air Quality
Not only will leaks allow air to escape out of your ducts. They’ll also allow contaminants and pollutants to get into your ductwork. As a result, they’ll travel into the air supply in your home. These contaminants can cause respiratory problems and worsen asthma and allergy symptoms.
Lower Your Energy Costs
Duct sealing can boost the efficiency of your HVAC system by as much as 20 percent. By keeping the conditioned air in your ducts, your system won’t work as hard to cool your home. The less energy your system expends, the lower your energy bills will be while still maintaining comfort.
Signs You Need Duct Sealing
While the first sign that your ducts need sealing may be high energy bills, other signs can include:
- Rattling in your outlets
- Hot and cold spots in the room
- Lessened airflow from certain vents
