How to Maximize Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency

Air duct sealing

Posted: June 15, 2018

Keeping your ductwork properly sealed is a great way to save money on your cooling expenses—and to make your home more comfortable, energy efficient and safe all year long.

Proper duct sealing helps:

  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.) can emit carbon monoxide and other gases as they operate. Leaky ductwork can cause backdrafting—drawing toxic gases back into your living space. Sealing reduces that risk.
  4. Your wallet. Leaky ducts can reduce efficiency—and increase your energy expenses—by as much as 20 percent.
  5. Your planet. 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.
