Keeping your ductwork properly sealed is one of the best ways to save money on heating and cooling bills because it improves energy efficiency. It can also make your home more comfortable and safe. Look at all of the benefits:

  • Comfort — Sealing and insulating ducts can help you keep a consistent temperature throughout your home, in any season.
  • Health — Sealing ducts can reduce the circulation of fumes, allergens, and other pollutants drawn from inside and outside your home, minimizing asthma and other respiratory problems.
  • Safety — Your gas appliances (water heaters, clothes dryers, furnaces, etc.) emit carbon monoxide and other gases as they operate. Leaky ductwork can cause “backdrafting,” drawing these dangerous gases back into your living space. Sealing reduces that risk.
  • Savings — Leaky ducts can reduce efficiency – and increase your bills – by as much as 20 percent!
  • Mother Earth — Most of the energy you use to heat and cool your home comes from burning fossil fuels. By sealing your ducts, you reduce the amount of energy needed to heat or cool your home – and the emissions that come from creating that energy.
