House dust can make us feel miserable, causing everything from sneezing to itchy skin and watery eyes. How can tiny specks of dust exert so much power over us? Consider this:
In most cases, this problem—as well the presence of airborne allergens, viruses/bacteria and mold/mildew –can be traced to leaky ductwork. If you have a leak, your return ductwork (which takes the air inside your home back to your heating or cooling system) will draw air from places like garages, attics and crawl spaces.

One symptom of leaking ducts is a whistling noise because the airflow is not balanced.
We can do a thorough inspection of your duct system to identify problem areas. We can then seal any leaks we find with Aeroseal, a proven method to stop ducts from leaking and ensure a healthier environment for your home. Read more.
Sealing your duct work can also save you up to 30% on your energy bills. Besides gaining significant energy savings, a well-sealed duct system will result in a more comfortable home. Well-sealed ductwork reduces allergens by ensuring that all conditioned air passes through filters. Sealed ducts also improve air circulation so temperatures are more even. Uneven temperatures are another common complaint in homes where there are significant duct leaks.
