The majority of homeowners utilize a system of air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. This can be a very effective and efficient way of doing so. We should emphasize the “can” in this statement, though, because if your air ducts are not in great working condition, then there is no way that your system will distribute air in the effective and efficient manner that you deserve. That is why professional duct sealing is so important in those home with leaky ductwork. Here are a few examples of ways in which having your air ducts sealed by the pros at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling can benefit you.
When your air ducts are compromised, your comfort is going to suffer. If your air ducts are not able to successfully distribute conditioned air throughout your home, then your house will not be heated or cooled evenly. This will leave different areas of the house at different temperatures, meaning that your comfort will vary on a room to room basis. Having your air ducts sealed can help to ensure your comfort no matter where you are in your home.
It is a common misconception that air leaks in your ductwork will result in completely wasted energy. That conditioned air that leaks out does make its way throughout your home: it just may not be in the places where it is most needed. If air leaks out of your ductwork at random points throughout the house, then it may wind up in areas that are already at the right temperature, or trapped between walls or in the attic. This may be better than letting that air right out of the window, but not by much. By sealing your air ducts, you can both heat and cool your home with greater efficiency than you’d otherwise be able to.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Compromised ductwork can be just as bad for your air quality as it is for your comfort and the efficiency with which you heat and cool your home. This is because pollutants can make their way right into the system when it is torn or improperly sealed. It is then distributed throughout the house.
