Interior of an air duct.
Ducts are one of those things that are both very important, and consistently ignored by most people. A lot of attention is paid to maintaining air conditioning and heating systems, which is good, but not at the expense of the health of your ductwork. The ducts are like the lungs of your climate control systems. If they’re in really poor condition, it’s going to hurt your climate control far more than you may realize. Fortunately, there’s a fairly simple way to keep your ducts operating at peak efficiency.
Duct sealing is a common process used to patch small-to-moderate leaks in the ductwork. Duct leaks are responsible for massive output losses in the average home, up to 30% in some cases. Many homeowners don’t realize what a massive impact leaky ducts can have on the efficiency of their systems. With duct sealing, though, that lost output can be returned to the system.
