Air ducts take the temperature-controlled air your HVAC creates and pushes it into your home. They are also very important to the effectiveness and efficiency of your entire HVAC system in Surf City, North Carolina, home. If the ducts aren’t properly sealed, the whole system can act inefficiently. Here are just a few reasons to get your ducts sealed:
Amp Up Energy Efficiency
If you don’t have ducts with proper sealing, you could be losing up to 30 percent of your conditioned air to crawl spaces, attics or other areas that don’t need temperature control. That adds up to hundreds of dollars a year in energy that you don’t even get to use. When you seal the ductwork, the air efficiently flows where you will actually use it and doesn’t waste itself. As a result, you keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
Even Out Temperatures
If some of the rooms in your house feel cold all of the time while others are often stuffy, it could be because the air ducts aren’t operating as they should. Air could be leaking out before it hits certain rooms, which is why they remain at different temperatures. Sealing the ductwork will place the air evenly in every space within the home.
Give the HVAC System a Break
Your HVAC system works hard to pump air into your home. But the more air that it has to push through the ducts, the harder it works. If air is escaping through the ducts, the HVAC system has to constantly create and push more air into the home compensate for the waste. When you have your ducts sealed, the HVAC system doesn’t have to work nearly as hard. As a result, you prevent straining the system and breakdowns.
