The ductwork in your home is designed to provide ample heating and cooling to your home every single day of the year. Connected between your home’s air handler and the registers in your bedrooms, living room and bathrooms, your ductwork is responsible for moving conditioned air without losing any of the heat it holds. IERNA’s Heating & Cooling offers duct sealing services for just this reason of ensuring your home’s ductwork always works exactly as intended.
If you are concerned that your ductwork is not efficiently moving heated and cooled air between air handler and rooms in your home and you would like our Lutz duct sealing experts to perform an inspection, give us a call today to schedule a home visit.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DUCT SEALING
Ductwork already accounts for a 30% loss in heating or cooled air between your HVAC system and the rooms it is designed to cool. So, you want to know that your ductwork is properly sealed to keep that number from increasing. Even a small leak the size of a penny can cause a significant drop in efficiency.
Beyond annual maintenance and duct cleaning, there is not much you can do to prevent these leaks from developing. Ductwork is rigid and can be shifted or affected by extreme weather or settling foundation. Over time, cracks will develop which is why a ductwork inspection and subsequent duct sealing is so important.
THE DUCT SEALING PROCESS
After visiting your home and inspecting your ductwork for possible leaks, we will create a sealing plan. There are a number of ways to seal ductwork, including external insulation and sealants and interior sealant layers that block off any cracks. We will also test to make sure the ductwork was properly installed originally and that there are no external issues that might be causing the leaks to develop.
The bottom line is that if you are worried about the ductwork in your home delivering sufficient heated or cooled air to every room, you should call IERNA’s Heating & Cooling today and ask one of our NATE and EPA certified technicians about duct sealing in Tampa. We will visit your home, perform a thorough inspection and recommend the best course of action to improve the efficiency and overall operation of your home’s ductwork system.
