The ductwork in your home plays a crucial role in the indoor air quality and overall comfort level throughout the home from room to room. Often times the air inside your home is more contaminated than the outside air. Professional duct sealing with Aeroseal is a very good investment for any homeowner and it can save money in the long run too, simply because the hot or cold air that is going through the duct work is not being leaked out of the ductwork. We’re proud to be a licensed heating and cooling company that offers duct sealing with Aeroseal to clients around the area. Here’s how to know if your home needs duct sealing.
Sign #1: You have hot or cold spots throughout the house.
Some rooms are warm and others aren’t…sound familiar? These warm or cold spots in the home could mean that you have leaks in your air ducts.
Sign #2: You have a lot of dust accumulation around the home.
Do you feel like you’re always dusting? Excess dust accumulation could be a sign that you have damaged or leaky ducts. Excess dust can come from your attic or crawl space areas and when the heating system pulls the dust from those spaces into your home, it will be circulated throughout the area.
Sign #3: You see a spike in utility costs.
Normally homeowners in the winter see a bit of an increase in their utility bills over the winter because their furnaces are running for longer periods of time. But if you see a dramatic spike in the utility bills and there hasn’t been an increase in utility rates, leaky air ducts could be one of the issues. Leaky ducts let cold air in and leak the warm air out, which means your furnace is working a lot harder to do its job and this means you could see some expensive utility bills. Sealed ductwork allows you to keep cold air out and warm air in and you’ll be able to avoid astronomically priced energy bills.
How Aeroseal works:
Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented solution that has a 98% success rate. A sealant is injected into the ductwork of the home and as the air stream makes exists through the leak, the tiny aerosol particles collide and attach to the areas where the leaks are present. During the process, we will provide a computer analysis of your home’s generated leakage, and then once the Aeroseal process is complete, we’ll provide a report showing that the process was successful.
Leaky ductwork can cost homeowners hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars every year in wasted energy. Aeroseal is an affordable solution that can fix leaks from the inside out!
