Five Benefits of Properly Sealed Ducts

After a few steamy summers and bitterly cold winters, you finally did it: you installed forced heating and cooling in your home. Congratulations! It was a financial and logistical hurdle, but the resulting temperate climate is totally worth it….right? Well, not if you are losing 20-30 percent of your treated air due to poorly sealed ducts. This is a common occurrence in many homes, even those with relatively new systems. While pinhole leaks in the seal of your ducts may seem minuscule, the sum of all these exit points results in high energy bills, limited airflow, and rooms that are difficult to heat or cool.

Air ducts

Ensuring that your treated air doesn’t escape is key to getting the most out of your system. You may think that small leaks don’t have a significant enough effect on your efficiency to warrant a repair, but it can have a critical impact on your system’s performance. To convert the non-believers, we’ve compiled a list of the top five benefits of properly sealed ducts.

  • Improved indoor air quality is another indirect benefit of keeping your ducts properly sealed. Fumes from your garage, debris, and dust can enter through gaps and aggravate asthma or allergy symptoms. Keeping those tiny airways closed can increase your health.
  • Raised comfort levels are the most obvious result of well-sealed air ducts, as they allow your system to do its job effectively, resulting in cooler rooms in hotter temperatures and cozy warmth in the winter months.
  • Increased safety is a benefit that is often overlooked, but can be dramatically impacted by the quality of your duct system. Household gas appliances can sometimes release combustion gases through their ventilation system, such as carbon monoxide, that are toxic when inhaled. With a leaky duct system, these gases get “back drafted” in your home instead of released outdoors, causing major health risks.
  • Minimizing the carbon footprint of your home is a powerful way to protect the environment and live sustainably. Limiting the fossils fuels needed to power your system will conserve natural resources and help to sustain our planet, while still keeping you cool in the heat and warm in the cold.

Great HVAC Repair company! They answered when I called this morning and in the middle of Summer had a repair person out this afternoon. Our repair guy Robert May was incredibly nice, professional, and did a great job of explaining what was wrong as he fixed it. Now our AC is working perfectly!

Very responsive – called to request service on a Monday morning and repairman arrived after lunch the next day. Service was excellent. Technician was professional and knowledgeable. Every step of the repair process was explained. AC unit is now working efficiently. Recommendations were made but did not push us to purchase other services or parts. Would 100% recommend!

Gen

Just Right was able to come within a few hours- helpful when the A/C is broken and its 90 degrees. The team were really nice, courteous guys who explained everything to me and provided an estimate to sign before proceeding with the work. Our A/C was up and running within an hour at a reasonable price. Thank you!
