All of the heated or cooled air in your Fairfield Glade, Tennessee, home passes through the air ducts. If those ducts are loose or have gaps, that air could be wasted, leading to poor indoor air quality and reduced comfort. Here are three benefits of aeroseal duct sealing.
Leaky ducts could cause some parts of your home to lack the warmed or cooled air you need for optimal comfort. This results in rooms that are too hot in summer or too cold in winter. The Aeroseal sealing of the ducts stops the leaks and allows the air to get into your living spaces, where it belongs. Your home’s temperature will be more consistent after duct sealing.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Sealing the ductwork in your home reduces the number of particles in the air you breathe. All of the warmed or cooled air passes through a filter before it enters the ducts. That filter captures particles. However, a gap in the ducts allows new particles to get into the air. A tiny gap in the ducts offers plenty of space for pollen and dust to infiltrate the air that reaches your living spaces. Sealing the gaps in the ducts stops these contaminants from entering the air you breathe.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Leaky ducts waste a lot of the energy that your heat pump, furnace or air conditioner uses to heat or cool the air. According to the Department of Energy, leaky ducts lower your heating and cooling system’s efficiency by 20 percent. Aeroseal duct sealing ensures that all of the warmed or cooled air gets into your living spaces. Your heating and cooling system won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. Thanks to the energy savings, sealing the ductwork could pay for itself within a year or two.
