Protect Your Indoor Air Quality By Sealing Your Ductwork

We’re deep into the spring season now, and summer will be upon us before you know it. If you suffer from allergies, this can be a pretty trying time of the year. Some people get hit so hard by their allergies that they stay sequestered in their homes as much as possible. That’s no way to live, especially not if your indoor air quality is subpar. Once you start dealing with high levels of allergens in your home, life can get really miserable. That is why we strongly suggest scheduling professional duct sealing in Kingsburg, FL with a member of our staff.

How Does Duct Sealing Benefit Me?

A major benefit of professional duct sealing is the fact that it can help to greatly boost energy efficiency in one’s home. When your air ducts are leaking, after all, conditioned air may leak out into areas where it is not needed. Your system is then going to have to work overtime in order effectively and evenly heat or cool your home. The issue of air leaking out of your ductwork, though, is not the only problem. You must also be concerned with pollutants being pulled into leaky ductwork. When they are, they can travel throughout your air ducts, being distributed throughout your entire home. They may not pass through the filter by the air handler in your system, either, so there could be no hope of stopping many of these pollutants before they are sent airborne.

How Do I Know if I Need Duct Sealing?

There are a few signs that you may require duct sealing in your home. A loss of energy efficiency, as well as a decrease in indoor air quality, are among the most common. You may also experience hot and cold spots popping up in your home, and you may even hear a hissing or whistling sound as air escapes your ductwork. If you have any suspicions, professional duct testing can tell you for certain what kind of condition your air ducts are in.
