If you haven’t had your ductwork inspected, now is the time – it may be torn, disconnected or poorly sealed, causing leaks, higher utility bills and uncomfortable temperatures in your home.
Here are the top three reasons you should have your ductwork looked at:
- Indoor air quality – Mold, dust, allergens and other particles may enter a duct system that is poorly sealed, aggravating allergy problems. Ensuring ducts are properly sealed will minimize the amount of particles that enter the system, improving indoor air quality and literally helping you breathe easier.
- Comfort – Ducts distribute air or heat equally throughout your home, keeping you comfortable no matter what room you are in. According to the EPA, approximately 20% of the air moving through the average home’s duct system is lost due to leaks, holes and poorly connected ducts.
- Efficiency – When ducts are not sealed or maintained correctly, air escapes, making your system work much harder than necessary. Not only is this hard on the system, it ends up costing you more money in energy bills each month. It is a relatively easy issue to fix, and will save you money down the line!
