Each day we strive to create healthy, happy lives for our family. But did you know that your home can directly impact the health of your loved ones? Your HVAC system pumps air throughout each room every day of the year. However, if the ducts in your HVAC system aren’t properly sealed, they don’t work as efficiently as possible and can create health problems instead of eliminating them.
What is Duct Sealing?
According to Energy Star, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. In addition, these holes and poor connections allow dirt, dust, and debris to get into your duct system. Duct sealing is when a sealant is used to close leaks and holes as well as make sure connected ducts are well connected.
How Can Duct Sealing Help?
Sealing the duct system in your home can help keep the air in and keep pollutants out. Duct sealing companies can inspect your duct system to find leaks, holes, and poor connections. They can then eliminate these imperfections, helping you create a healthier home.
Even Temperatures in Each Room
After a duct system is sealed, the HVAC system can provide even temperatures in each room. Consistent temperatures in any given room can help residents feel and breathe better. A bedroom that isn’t too warm or too cold, but is just right all the time, can help your loved one sleep better. Better sleep can result in more energy and a stronger immune system.
Less Dust in the Home
When dust can’t get into the duct system, it can’t be distributed throughout the home. Sealed ductwork means less dust throughout the home to gather on shelves and baseboards. While a little dust here and there may not seem like a problem, it can build up over time. A buildup of dirt and debris can cause illness in humans and pets. A duct sealing contractor can make sure to seal up ducts, so less dust is moved around the home.
Fewer Allergens and Pollutants
In addition to dust, allergens and pollutants can spread throughout a home if there are holes in the duct system. This can lead to occupants of the home suffering from:
- Stuffy nose
- Itchy eyes
- Trouble breathing
