Gaps & Holes In Ducts
When something is wrong with your duct system, you’ll likely notice. For instance, you may detect a musty odor in your home. Alternatively, your home may be dustier than normal. Have your energy bills climbed significantly higher? If you’ve answered yes to one of these questions, inspect the system and repair any issues you find. Our technicians can fix any gaps or holes around your duct systems. Remember that leaks will lead to major issues.
Even a small leak is going to negatively impact the performance of your HVAC system. Instead of cooling the room, the air will escape and cool your attic or crawlspace. You can’t let this happen since it’ll decrease the unit’s efficiency and send the utility bill higher. Furthermore, you need to properly seal the ducts to ensure that contaminants cannot enter your home. Call our office and take advantage of our duct sealing services. Do that and we’ll fix the problem before you know it.
Proper Seal Guarantees Efficiency
Gaps, cracks, or tears in the duct system will lead to decreased efficiency. Since cold or warm air is escaping the duct system, the HVAC system will need to work harder to keep your home warm or cool. As a result, more stress is going to be placed on the HVAC system and this will lead to big issues. The lifespan of the system will shrink. Plus, there is a good chance that your energy bills are going to climb significantly higher. There is also a risk that the loose ducts will lead to indoor air quality issues.
Pollutants could slip through the small gaps and enter your home through the vents. It is pertinent to ensure that the ducts are properly sealed. They should also be insulated to guarantee that the system can function at efficiently as possible. If you suspect you have problems, contact us so we can carefully inspect your ducts. When we find leaks, we’ll take steps to fix them swiftly.
