Duct sealing can keep you safe and comfortable!
Sealing ducts against leaks is even more important if the ducts are located in unconditioned basements, attics, or vented crawl spaces. Heated or cooled air can be forced out of poorly sealed joints and lost. Dirty, unconditioned air can be drawn into return ducts, and introduced into the home. This not only causes heating and cooling equipment to perform well below peak efficiency, but also presents health concerns. Ducts may harbor contaminants such as mold, mildew, pet dander, dust, insects, webs, vermin, and feces. Degraded indoor air quality has been directly linked to respiratory problems and allergies.
According to research performed by the US Department of Energy, somewhere between a quarter to half of the energy used for heating and cooling a home is wasted. About 20% to 30% of the air that flows through the average duct system is lost to holes and poor connections. The result is higher utility bills and an uncomfortable home. Dirt and debris in the HVAC system force it to work harder and shortens the life of equipment. When a system is clean, it can more easily maintain ideal temperatures. As a result, less energy is used, resulting in superior cost effectiveness and greater temperature control.
Head's HVAC strives to protect our valued residential and commercial customers from energy losses, insufficient comfort, and degraded air quality. One of the most cost-effective measures to ensure your home enjoyment is duct sealing and cleaning. Consider that the air you breathe circulates through a branching network of ducts many times throughout the day. This air should be kept clean and free of contaminants. Heated and cooled air must be prevented from escaping. Untreated air must be prevented from entering.
