If you have a ducted HVAC system, then you likely have some understanding of just how important your ductwork is to the performance of your HVAC system. Unfortunately, not many homeowners think about this integral part of their heating and air conditioning system until something goes wrong—neglecting it for the most part. This is mostly because the ducts are hidden from view.
Ductwork also has no mechanical components, so it’s understandable to believe that they wouldn’t have very many issues. Air ducts often have leaks, however. They could be coming from small tears here and there throughout the ductwork, but even small leaks can add up to big problems. The solution to this isn’t a costly replacement of your ductwork (hopefully), but rather professional air duct sealing. Keep reading to learn some reasons why you should invest in this service.
Sealing Your Ductwork
One of the leading reasons you should have your ductwork professionally sealed is that it helps your HVAC system work more efficiently. Since it won’t be losing conditioned air, it won’t have to operate for as long and will lower your energy bills in the process.
Your overall HVAC performance will be impacted too, once your ducts are appropriately sealed. Leaky ductwork allows for drafty areas in the home and uncomfortable hold or cold spots, leading you to turn up your AC or turn down your heater when you really don’t need to.
This all equates to a longer HVAC lifespan. This is because your system will not have to work as hard to get its job done as it won’t be compensating for ductwork air loss. It also will likely not need as many repairs since it won’t be working so hard. This minimal wear and tear on the system can help it last longer than it otherwise would have.
