Summers in Vilonia, AR, definitely get hot, but sealing your ductwork can certainly help your AC keep you cool. In addition to preventing uncomfortable and uneven cooling issues, a well-sealed ductwork system can lower your utility costs and even help get you more mileage out of your HVAC unit.
Decreased Energy Bills With Sealed Ductwork
A properly functioning air duct systsem makes your HVAC system much more efficient, and this increased efficiency results in less energy being wasted. Most HVAC systems can leak up to 20 percent of the cool air they generate unless the ductwork is properly sealed, so taking care of your air duct system can certainly be a worthwhile investment. Many of our customers find that they are actually in the black on their sealing investment once they factor in their electricity savings.
More Mileage Out of Your HVAC System
HVAC systems with a leaky air duct system will have to work much harder to maintain a given temperature, and all of this work can add up to unnecessary wear and tear. In addition to the immediate savings that you’ll see on your energy, you can also expect to save on future repairs for your system’s other parts and perhaps early replacement.
Safer Home Environment With Sealed Ductwork
If you’re currently using a furnace that runs on gas, then sealing the duct system in your home results in a safe escape route for the combustion compounds that the furnace produces. A duct system with leaks, on the other hand, can result in dangerous carbon monoxide spreading into your home. Duct sealing can help to prevent this spread.
