The ducts in your home are responsible for maintaining comfortable temperatures year-round. These ducts can get damaged over time, causing them to work less efficiently. Leaks, holes or poorly connected ducts can account for an average air loss of 20 to 30 percent. This air loss will account for higher utility bills since the home’s HVAC unit may be working harder to pump more air through the ducts. Not only will this result in higher utility bills, it will also make it more difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature within the home, regardless of the season. Mechanical Technologies offers duct sealing services that will allow HVAC systems to work as efficiently as possible.
When you are experiencing problems with your temperature control system, your duct system likely has more than one leak. As a result, your system becomes less efficient over time. This means you will need to run it more often, causing your utility bills to skyrocket. Leaks throughout your duct system will also increase dust and allergens spreading throughout your home. Additionally, air leaks can cause mold and water damage inside your walls. If you begin to notice a definite change in temperature from room to room, you might have significant air leaks.
In order to properly deal with duct leaks, homeowners should work with a professional contractor. Since air ducts tend to run within the walls of homes, getting to them can be difficult. A professional contractor can tend to the the leaks with efficient and proper sealing services. Once the leaks are dealt with, your home will become more comfortable. Since you’ll be able to use your HVAC system more effectively, your utility bill will decrease. You will save money while doing your part in protecting the environment.
