Aside from regular cleanings, duct sealing is also an effective way to protect your home’s HVAC system and save energy.
Leaks in your ductwork can be costly, and often occur due to temperature fluctuations, humidity, pressure imbalance, vibrations, general wear and tear, or pest infestations. Ductwork often leaks at seams, joints or other connecting parts, such as elbows.
Here are some signs that may indicate a duct leak:
- It takes a long time to cool down your house.
- You experience uneven heating and cooling (cold and warm spots) throughout your home.
- The indoor air is dusty.
- You notice unusually high energy bills.
If you have a room that doesn’t seem to heat up or cool down as efficiently as the rest of your house, consider getting your ducts balanced.
In this process, we adjust all the registers (vents) in your home to ensure proper, even airflow. We will measure the airflow around your home and balance the internal mechanisms of your registers accordingly to allow consistent hot or cold air into each room.
Removing attic insulation is an effective way to save energy in your home. If your attic has old or dirty insulation, it may need replacement.
Old attic insulation, for example, is often inefficient and could make your HVAC work twice as hard, leading to unnecessarily high energy bills. On the other hand, dirty attic insulation could result from pests, like rodents and birds, contaminating the material, which can lead to poor air quality in your home.
If you have either of these situations, it may be time to remove your attic insulation to maximize your house’s safety and energy efficiency.
