When to Seal Your Ductwork

Did you know that more than 20 percent of the air that moves through your duct system is lost due to leaks and poor connections? No matter how properly your thermostat is set, poor ductwork will cause you to pay more money out of pocket for your heating and cooling expenses. That’s where duct sealing comes into play.

Sealing your ductwork is beneficial for your wallet as well as the comfort of your home and family. Sometimes our heating and cooling system works properly, but something has gone wrong with our ductwork. The likely culprit? You have a leak in the system, which leads to the loss of comfortable air in your home. And as a result, your energy bills skyrocket.

That being said, here are six signs you need to seal your ductwork:

  1. Your utility bills are through the roof
  2. You have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool efficiently
  3. Rooms in the home feel uncomfortable and stuffy
  4. Your ducts are located in cooler areas, like the attic, garage, or crawlspace
  5. You find tangled flexible ducts in your system
  6. You spy loose duct connections
  7. You’re likely to prevent leaks
