When your air ducts are leaky, they are going to fail to distribute heated and cooled air throughout your home in an even and effective manner. This will likely result in uneven temperatures throughout your home, which means that you’ll be less comfortable in certain rooms than others. If you hope to live in the comfort that you deserve throughout your entire home, then it is advisable that you have your air ducts professionally sealed by a qualified party.
You won’t likely suffer a 100% loss of energy when your ducts leak, as that conditioned air will probably wind up somewhere in the house. However, your system will still have to work overtime in order to balance temperatures throughout your home, and that can decimate the efficiency with which your system operates. Keep your energy costs in check by having your ductwork sealed.
How’s the indoor air quality in your home? If it seems to be in decline, that could very well be due to the fact that your system is taking pollutants into the ductwork, and that those air ducts are then spreading those pollutants throughout the house. You can breathe air of a higher quality by having your air ducts sealed.
