Why You Should Check for Air Leaks During the Summer

Summer is here! The warm temperatures are here to stay for a while and your air conditioner will be put to the test, working hard to keep you comfortable and cool each day. Did you know that the ductwork connected to your cooling system can accumulate dust and dirt, and even develop small cracks over time that leak air? This translates to air that isn’t as clean and a lot of wasted energy if it’s not discovered quickly. In addition, this makes your system work harder and it can negatively impact the efficiency of your system and could cause unnecessary breakdowns.

Here’s why you should check for air leaks this summer:

The ductwork in your home plays a big role in the overall comfort and temperature inside. When leaky ducts are present, air can’t reach the rooms in your home quickly and your system has to work harder to reach the designated temperature. Unsealed ductwork can also cost you money. An HVAC system that’s working hard makes the operating components worn down. This means it costs more to run and has to run for longer periods of time.

Your ductwork usually runs through the dustiest and dirtiest parts of your home, including the crawlspace. When there are leaks in the ducts, dirty air particles that are full of dust, harmful debris, or bacteria can get inside of your home and that means you and your family are breathing contaminated air that could be damaging to your airway and health.
