A few weeks back we talked about leaky ducts and how important it is to have Four Seasons inspect your ducts for leaks should you suspect that they are responsible for some of the heating and cooling problems you may be experiencing. However, we did not talk about the solution to this problem and the full range of benefits that it can bring to leaky duct work systems. Duct sealing is the solution that Four Seasons has to offer, and the benefits will have you wishing you called sooner to address this problem in your home.
4 Reasons to Have Four Seasons Seal Your Ducts
- Better Air Quality: Leaky ducts pull air into the returns from the unconditioned rooms in the home like the attic or crawl space and this air is filthy. This air mixes with the air you breathe every day, and could seriously irritate allergies and respiratory conditions. Sealing the leaks in these ducts will vastly improve your indoor air quality.
- Maximized Comfort: Hot and cold rooms in your home may be caused by leaky ducts. Leaks on the supply side prevent heated and cooled air from reaching their target destinations, and leaks on the return side pull in extra cold or extra hot air from the unconditioned areas in the home. All of this extra hot and cold air must then be compensated for by the furnace and air conditioner causing a delay in achieving home comfort.
- Improved Efficiency: Sealing leaks will lead to improved energy efficiency because the furnace and air conditioner will not have to work as hard to provide comfort in the home. You won’t waste money heating and cooling unconditioned areas from leaks in the supply ducts, and the return ducts won’t pull in unconditioned air adding to the HVAC system’s load.
- Longer Lifespan: Sealing the ducts eliminates unnecessary cycling of the furnace and air conditioner. By reducing the workload of the heating and cooling systems you decrease the wear and tear they experience over the years therefore leading to a longer lifespan!
