Scheduling an air conditioning service every year is a must for homeowners, but keep in mind that in order to keep your air conditioner well maintained you should also invest in duct sealing. In this post, Mechanical Technologies shares three important benefits of having your ducts checked and sealed regularly.
Failure to properly seal your ducts can lead to a number of problems, including duct leaks. When leaks form in your air conditioner, the unit is then forced to double its effort to stabilize the temperature in your home. This often causes air conditioning problems, which will need to be fixed immediately. To prevent such issues from recurring or affecting the entire cooling system, you should keep your ducts properly sealed.
By being diligent when it comes to air duct cleaning and sealing, you can avoid plenty of HVAC issues, particularly leaks. In addition to costing you money, duct leaks can also impact the comfort of your home. Typically, these leaks tend to create hot spots in different areas of your home, making it difficult for cool conditioned air to circulate properly. Thanks to duct sealing, you’re able to maintain a consistent temperature in every area of your home.
According to experts, around 30% of conditioned air can leak out through the ducts if they’re not properly sealed. This leads to a lot of energy waste, as you’re paying for something that you don’t really get to benefit from. If you notice a sudden and unexplained increase in your utility bills, you might want to have your ducts checked to ensure that they’re sealed.
