Air ducts are more likely to leak than you would think. Most people are unaware that almost 99% of the air ducts in homes have up to 44% of leakage. According to the Department of Energy, there is enough air leakage in the average home to leaving a medium-sized window wide open. Luckily, this doesn’t have to be the case for you.

Sealing air ducts will prevent leakage leading to a cut in the amount of energy your home uses. When you cut the amount of energy your home uses, you are cutting down the amount of energy that the source (likely a power plant) uses. Ultimately, you are contributing to the decrease of pollution due to less energy being produced.
Are there rooms that are too hot in the summer, but too cold in the winter but the rest of your home is evenly controlled throughout? When you seal your air ducts, you can distribute the air more efficiently, and then every room will maintain a consistent temperature.
Leaking air ducts can raise utility bills. If your systems are working inefficiently, your utility bills can go down up to 20%! Getting an air duct specialist to fix your systems, will pay itself off in no time with the money you will be saving monthly.
Unfortunately, fumes from chemicals and insulation are likely to end up in your air ducts. When your air ducts are leaking, these fumes can end up being distributed throughout your home, instead of filtered out if there were no leaks. These fumes can lead to more aggressive allergies and increase the risk of asthma. Seal your air ducts and improve the quality of your air.
If your home uses gas appliances, like furnaces or water heaters, these appliances can release combustion gases. If your air duct is leaking, these gases can be blown throughout your home through “back drafting.” Keep the fumes from getting into your home by calling an air duct specialist today to make sure your air ducts are working properly.
