Duct sealing service is provided by HVAC technicians to handle breaches in your duct work. Breaches can arise from a number of conditions, including age, corrosion and external damage. Duct sealing uses mastic, metallic tape and sometimes fitted parts to repair the breach. Here in Milford, duct sealing can be performed quickly and efficiently in many cases, but that doesn’t explain why you’d need the service in the first place. What’s so damaging about duct breaches that they need to be sealed? Here are 3 problems solved by duct sealing.
- Reduced heating and cooling efficiency
Duct breaches tend to either pull outside air into your HVAC system or pull conditioned air out of it. Either way, the result is the same: the air isn’t as cool (or as warm) as you need it to be and your HVAC system must work harder to do its job. Your monthly bills will go up as a result.
- Reduced air flow
A breach can often slow the flow of conditioned air from your HVAC system to the rest of your home. The effect of this is the same as the loss of conditioned air: your house won’t cool down (or heat up) as quickly as you need it to, forcing the system to take longer to do its job and increasing the monthly cost of running it. In addition, the added strain will likely increase the chances of a breakdown taking place in your HVAC system.
- Increased amounts of dust
Dust can get pulled in through a breach very easily, especially if the breach occurs in places like your crawlspace that don’t get dusts. Once dust gets into your ducts I can spread throughout your household, lowering the quality of air and increasing irritation in the nose and throat.
