We use our air conditioners a lot more than we do our heating systems in this part of the country. If you use a forced heating system along with a central air conditioner, though, there is some equipment that is in play all year long. This is your ductwork.
Your ductwork is responsible for distributing heated and cooled air throughout your entire home so that you can live comfortably all year long. That is easier said than done if your ductwork is leaking, though. Consider these 3 benefits of scheduling professional duct sealing in Tucson, AZ.
Efficiency, Comfort, and Air Quality
These are some of the things at stake if you try to heat and cool your home with an HVAC system using leaky ductwork. Efficiency may be the first one to go. When your ductwork is leaking, it is unlikely that the conditioned air will find its way to the intended destination. Sure, it will wind up somewhere in your house, but not necessarily where it is needed. That can cause your HVAC system to work overtime in an effort to balance temperatures throughout the house.
This brings us to our next point, which is your comfort. Is your air ducts are leaking, then you are probably not going to be able to heat and cool your home evenly. You can run your system and waste money in trying to achieve comfort in every area of the house, but you are probably going to wind up paying more for what amounts to less comfort. We believe that you deserve better than that.
Then, there is your indoor air quality to consider. If your ducts are leaking, you will rightfully worry about air leaking out of them. However, you must also consider what may be getting into them. When there are holes in the ducts, pollutants can enter them and then be distributed throughout your living space. This can be a serious problem for residents with allergies or asthma.
