If you are one of the countless homeowners that uses air ducts to heat and cool their homes, then you are already well-aware of just how effective and reliable this method of air distribution can be. We say “can” purposefully, though, as there is really no guarantee that your air ducts are always going to function precisely as they ought to. If your air ducts are not in the great shape required for doing their job properly, then you are going to encounter a number of different issues in heating and cooling your home. Fortunately for you, our team is here to complete professional duct sealing services in Fresno, CA for you. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning today to learn more.
If your air ducts are not properly sealed, then they are going to leak conditioned air into areas of your home where it’s not really needed. When this happens, you may wind up heating and/or cooling different areas of your home to different temperatures, which in turn will leave your home less comfortable in certain areas than others. By having your ductwork expertly sealed, you can protect your comfort from such issues.
Should you encounter the previous problem, then you’ll likely wind up suffering from a drop in energy efficiency as well. All of that conditioned air may not go to complete waste, as it will wind up somewhere in the home. However, as your system attempts to balance temperatures throughout your living space, it will use more energy than it should have to in doing so, driving up energy costs.
Improved Air Quality
Air escaping from your improperly sealed ductwork is a serious concern, but it’s not the only one. You also have to worry about pollutants making their way into your ductwork. When this happens, your system can wind up distributing those pollutants throughout your entire house. This will seriously reduce your indoor air quality, which is another great argument for the professional duct sealing process.
