Unfortunately, up to 30 percent of your hot and cold air escapes through cracks in your ductwork. To prevent this from happening, it is possible to take advantage of aeroseal duct sealing. This procedure brings several benefits to your home.
When there are leaks in your duct system, air seeps into your attic and crawlspace. These areas are empty, which wastes your money on utility costs. When your ducts are sealed, your heating and cooling system becomes more efficient and only heats and cools where it should.
Heightened Air Quality
When you are in your home, you are breathing everything floating around, including dust, dander, pollen, and other pollutants. When these items enter your ductwork, the problem becomes worse. Aeroseal duct sealing keeps these things from getting inside your system. Therefore, pollutants are not circulating your space. Although this may not stop all of your air quality issues, it may have a positive effect.
Heightened Home Comfort
During a hot day in South Carolina, you want to make sure that your home keeps you cool. The same goes for cool days when you want a warm house. No matter the temperature outside, you want to remain comfortable inside. When you have leaks in your ducts, your cooled or heated air may not be distributed the way it should. However, aeroseal duct sealing stops the problem by keeping air from escaping. Therefore, hot or cold air will be delivered to the rooms that need it.
Heightened Home Safety
Poor inside air quality puts you and your family at risk. If you or your loved ones have allergies or asthma, dust and dander can aggravate the problems. If your home has mold, spores may spread and cause extreme damage. When ducts are correctly sealed, the safety of your home improves.
When there are small holes or gaps inside of your ducts, rattling or whistling sounds may occur. This isn’t very pleasant. As the cracks are filled, your system will work without these disturbing noises. You will sleep better and have a quieter house during the day.
