DUCT SEALING. WHY NOW IS THE BEST TIME.
Your ductwork has some age on it and you know it needs work. Why should you do it now? When duct sealing is done in the summer, the sealants don’t stick as well because ductwork sweats! So NOW is the time to call and schedule time for duct sealing.
Why are properly sealed ducts important? Ducts are used to distribute conditions air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes and poorly connect ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
Your home may have a poorly preforming duct system if:
- you have high summer and winter utility bills
- you have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool
- you have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable.
- your ducts are located in and attic, crawlspace or the garage
- you find tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient and safer.
