Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about their air ducts. But did you know that sealed and insulated ducts can make your home more comfortable and energy efficient? Did you also know that energy efficient is basically code for saving money on your monthly utility bills?
There are several signs that your home could benefit from duct sealing:
- High utility bills
- Rooms that are too hot in the winter/too cold in the summer
- Excessive dust in your home
When you have leaky air ducts, it reduces the efficiency of your home’s HVAC systems. Duct sealing can therefore help save you money by increasing the efficiency of your system’s performance and therefore lowering your energy bills.
Of course there are other benefits to duct sealing:
- Duct sealing can help improve your home’s indoor air quality.
- It also reduces the risk of backdrafting, if you have a gas furnace or water heater.
- Since duct sealing helps conserve energy, it’s also a great way to minimize your home’s environmental impact.
