3 Signs That it is Time to Seal Your Air Ducts

The majority of homeowners using whole-house heating and/or cooling systems depend upon air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout their homes. The problem with this is that many homeowners are simply unaware of the fact that their ductwork itself may be leading to a number of different problems throughout the home. Damaged or improperly sealed air ducts can have a very negative impact on your ability to maintain comfortable temperatures throughout your living space. The good news is that our staff is never more than a phone call away, and we offer the professional duct sealing services that you may need to get your system back up and running at peak performance levels. If you suspect the need for duct sealing in your Raleigh, NC home, then Ideal Services Heating & Cooling is the company to call. 

  1. Increased Heating and Cooling Costs: If you have been in your home for any amount of time, then you likely have a general idea of just how much it costs to heat and cool your home. It may not be an exact figure each month, but you will probably still notice if your heating and cooling costs get out of hand. When they do, it is possibly due to air leaks in your ductwork. When air escapes your ductwork via poor seals or tears, your system is going to have to work harder than it should have to in order to heat and cool your home effectively and evenly. Sealing your ductwork in such cases is a great way in which to restore your system to great efficiency levels.
  2. Uneven Temperatures Throughout the Home: Unless you use a zone control system in order to maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home, your heating and cooling system should keep temperatures pretty constant throughout the house. Should hot or cold spots pop up in different areas of your home, it may mean that the ductwork servicing those areas is compromised. Having your air ducts professionally sealed can help you to heat and cool your home more evenly once more.
  3. Decreased Indoor Air Quality: Damaged seals or leaks in your ductwork can allow pollutants to make their way into your system. The air ducts can then easily distribute those pollutants throughout your home. This can drag down your indoor air quality considerably, leaving you to suffer aggravated allergy or asthma symptoms in the process. Breathe air of a higher quality by ensuring that your air ducts are sealed properly.
