Benefits of Properly Sealed Ducts – Lower Bills, Improved Comfort and Safety

  • Energy Efficiency – Leaky ducts can reduce the efficiency of the HVAC system by as much as 20%, costing your customer extra money in energy costs every time they cool or heat their home. Did you know that most homeowners will pay for the cost of the sealing very quickly with the energy savings they get from having this service performed.
  • Comfort – Sealing leaks in the ductwork can help, or even eliminate some common comfort problems, such as rooms that are too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality – Leaky ducts can draw unfiltered, dirty air into the system from attics, crawlspaces and basements, aggravating allergies, asthma and other respirator problems.
  • Safety – In some cases, leaky ductwork can cause gas appliances in the home to “backdraft,” which occurs when harmful combustion gasses, like carbon monoxide, are drawn into the home rather than being properly expelled outdoors through the flue vents.
