Earlier this month we made our plea to stay ahead of the game and take care of our your routine A/C maintenance early. Today, we’ll focus on another important and often overlooked element of your home cooling system: your ductwork.

Keeping your ductwork properly sealed is one of the best ways to save you money on monthly cooling bills – and to make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safe all year long (if you want more ideas for ways to do those things, we can help there, too).

Proper duct sealing enhances:

  1. Your comfort – Sealing and insulating ducts can help you keep a consistent temperature throughout your home, in any season.
  2. Your 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.
  3. Your 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.
  4. Your wallet – Leaky ducts can reduce efficiency – and increase your bills – by as much as 20 percent!
  5. Your planet – Most of the energy you use to heat and cool your home comes from burning fossil fuels, which contributes to smog and climate change. By sealing your ducts, you reduce the amount of energy needed to heat or cool your home – and the emissions that come from delivering that energy to you.
