How Do I Know If I Need Duct Sealing?

It can be tricky at first to recognize the need for professional air duct sealing services. After all, so much of your ductwork is hidden from view, it’s not as though you can simply give your system a thorough visual inspection. There are plenty of warning signs to look out for though, as you’ll see below.

  • Whistling/Hissing: If your air ducts are whistling or hissing as they distribute conditioned air throughout your home, you likely need to have them sealed. This could be the sound of air escaping from your air ducts. This can lead to serious air loss problems.
  • Reduced Indoor Air Quality: A drop in indoor air quality is also a likely indicator that you need professional air duct sealing. You don’t just have to worry about air leaking out of your air ducts, after all. You also need to worry about pollutants making their way in, and then traveling throughout your entire home.
  • Increased Energy Costs: Does it seem as though you are paying more than ever in order to heat and cool your home? It could be due to leaky ductwork. As conditioned air escapes your ducts, your HVAC systems will have to work harder in order to evenly and successfully heat and cool your home.
