Ah, leaky ducts. One of the worst things that can happen to your brand-new air conditioner, aside from it breaking down completely. It can feel almost self-defeating to have a new air conditioning unit installed, only for all of that cool, conditioned air to leak into areas of your home where you can’t feel it. Air ducts are designed to transport the conditioned air through your home and into specific rooms, not have it leak all over the place and cause your energy bill to skyrocket.
Luckily, you don’t have to deal with this problem! We’re not talking about work that’s extensive as air duct replacement. In fact, we’re just talking about air duct sealing in Sanford, FL, a service that’s affordable, fast, and sometimes can be the answer you’re looking for.
Let’s talk about why you might want to get your air ducts sealed today!
Air Ducts Can Bend and Break Over Time
Air ducts go through a lot over time. We recommend investing in air duct sealing services, even if you think your air ducts look like they’re in good shape. The truth is that your ducts could have holes or gaps that need to be sealed, but your air conditioner is actually working overtime to keep your home comfortable, while the air secretly leaks through areas it shouldn’t.
One of the main reasons why your air ducts can run into problems over time is because of expansion and contraction.
Expansion and Contraction
When things heat up and cool down abruptly, materials can expand and contract. Metals, like the sheet metal that makes up your air ducts, expand when heated up (like when your air conditioner is turned off) and then contract when cooled down. This can cause a large amount of friction and can open up gaps or holes in areas of your ducts where there weren’t any before.
Leaky Ducts Can Cause an Influx of Contaminants
Once your air ducts start leaking, things can get worse. For instance, your home’s air could see an influx of contaminants within it because they’re flowing into the air ducts through a leak or a hole. This is a problem that can ruin the indoor air quality of your home, but can be alleviated with simple air duct sealing services!
Those contaminants that enter your air ducts will also gunk up the system and cause inefficiencies to develop within your HVAC machinery. We urge homeowners to not only replace the air filter but to have their ducts sealed to ensure no contaminants enter the system.
Duct Sealing Is Effective and Affordable
Duct repairs are a different question, but duct sealing is one of the easiest and most affordable services you can get for your air ducts.
