You’ve probably scheduled an air conditioning service in preparation for summer. This is great, of course, but keep in mind that preventive home maintenance goes beyond just an annual inspection and tune-up of your AC system. Your ducts need to be checked as well.
In this post, air conditioning contractor Air Pro Inc. discusses the importance of duct sealing when preparing your HVAC system for summer.
Lower Utility Bills
Around 30% of conditioned air can escape through the ducts if they’re not properly sealed. Remember that you’ll be paying for that wasted energy, so if you want to cut back on your energy bills, you might want to invest in duct sealing.
Reduced AC Repairs
Leaky ducts can force your air conditioner to work harder than normal in order for the system to circulate conditioned air throughout your home. Of course, this additional strain on your AC unit can lead to frequent repairs. Scheduling an air conditioning repair service is okay occasionally, but if it can be prevented with a simpler solution like duct sealing, you should consider investing in the latter. Repairs can be costly, and preventive maintenance is often the cheaper option.
Duct leaks can cause hot spots throughout your house, potentially affecting indoor comfort, especially on hot days. With these hot spots inside your home, cool conditioned air won’t be able to circulate efficiently. However, if your ducts are properly sealed, you can be sure that the conditioned air will go where it’s supposed to.
