Handling Leaking Ductwork

hand-sealing-ductworkThe ductwork in your home is important for delivering the conditioned air required to keep things comfortable and cool throughout the year. Without your ducts, your central air conditioner, or your ducted heat pump, isn’t going to be able to properly do its job. However, hearing that your ducts have sprung a leak can be a little confusing.

No, your ductwork isn’t going to start dripping water. When we refer to leaking ducts, we are talking about ductwork that has small breaks in its body where the air your air conditioning system is making is being allowed to escape. As you can imagine this is problematic when you are trying to maintain your home comfort–in fact, duct leaks are known for causing between a 15 to 40% home energy loss.

We can provide a reliable solution to this problem. All you have to do is reach out.

Do My Ducts Need Help?

First things first, you should make sure that you are reaching out for a service that you actually need. We are in the business of addressing issues impacting your comfort, after all.

Be aware of these signs that indicate your ducts are struggling with an air leakage:

  • Hissing noise: Hissing noises can be caused by the air escape through cracks or holes in your ducts.
  • Reduced airflow: If air is escaping from leaks in your ductwork, it means it won’t be reaching its destination, translating to weaker airflow from your vents.
  • Higher cooling bills: With less conditioned air reaching its intended destination, your AC will have to work harder to cool your home, meaning higher bills.
  • Dusty air: Air leakages will allow dusty, unfiltered air to enter your home.

How We Can Help

The team at Envirotech Air Quality services provides helpful duct sealing services in West Palm Beach, FL. Duct sealing is going to use a specialty kind of tape that can be applied to your ductwork to seal any air leaks that are causing problems. And to be clear, this is not the same as duct tape because, despite its name, duct tape actually can’t solve any issues with your ductwork.

Along with duct sealing, our team also provides duct repair services. While duct sealing deals with smaller air leaks, duct repairs are offered for ductwork that is starting to see larger issues such as breaks, larger holes, or even sizing problems.

Whether your home ductwork needs a duct sealing service or a duct repair, you can rely on our team to get the job done. We are a team of professional, certified technicians who are available to address any home comfort issue that you might be having. Whether it is as big as a broken down air conditioner, or as mistakenly small as problems with your ductwork, our team is available for you.

When you want to ensure your ductwork is going to be able to make it through the summer, contact Envirotech Air Quality Services. We have been serving West Palm Beach, FL and the surrounding areas since 1987.
