Duct sealing is an important part of routine maintenance on your home’s HVAC system. Over time, ductwork will naturally experience a certain degree of degradation as joints come loose from constant air flow and in some cases, leaks open up in the ductwork. When this happens, you need a Nashville, TN professional like Mid–State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing to handle your duct sealing needs.
Duct sealing is important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that a leak will reduce the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. When your ductwork leaks even a small amount your HVAC system is forced to work much harder to produce enough air to keep your home the same temperature. So, while you may not notice a drop in cooling or heating at first, you will notice a drop in efficiency as your bills increase dramatically.
This alone is bad enough, but then you must consider the cost of your system running that much harder to produce enough heating and cooling. The extra wear and tear this puts on an HVAC system can result in additional repairs and even early replacement of the system if not dealt with quickly. For all of these reasons, it is important that you have a professional inspect any suspected duct leaks immediately.
Another benefit of duct sealing is air quality. When your ductwork leaks, air can enter your ventilation system as well, often in the form of exhaust, outdoor pollution or allergens from outside. These things will bypass the filtration system in your home and worsen air quality if the leak is not sealed.
We will also check for potential future leaks and perform sealing on these before they have a chance to develop into full blown leaks that would require an additional visit. This is an important preventive step in the maintenance of your ductwork and one we highly recommend.
