You do everything you can to keep your home efficient. When you leave a room, the lights go off. At the end of the night, you unplug your electronics to stave off energy vampires. You keep your windows closed out of fear of letting in some of the hot Spring Hill, Florida, summer air.
With all you’ve done, you’ve probably reduced your energy bills considerably, but if you really want to take efficiency in your home to the next level, you need to remember a part of your home that’s often forgotten: your duct system. Without proper care, your ducts can be a money sapper. Contain your airflow and increase energy efficiency by having your ducts professionally sealed.
What Is Duct Sealing?
Over time, it’s very likely that leaks will form in your duct system. There’s not much you can do to avoid gaps forming in the metal network, but it’s important to be aware of them. When called in to seal your ducts, your professional HVAC technician will assess the extent of the leak and prepare to seal it. Here at Senica Air Conditioning, Inc., we use Aeroseal duct sealing technology, which uses polymer particles that adhere to the edges of the leak. Once the process is complete, your airflow will be as contained as it was the day your HVAC system was installed.
Why Have Your Ducts Sealed?
When leaks spread across your duct network, you lose precious air. As a result, your HVAC system must put in more effort to maintain comfort in your home. This drops efficiency and can reduce the lifespan of your system. Leaks also can allow more dust, dirt, and other hazardous particles into your airflow, reducing your indoor air quality. Sealing your ducts seals in your air and increases overall health in your home.
You’ll want to ensure your home is sealed and efficient before the real brunt of summer heat hits Spring Hills. To have your ducts sealed, call Senica Air Conditioning, Inc. at 866-881-5935.
