Are your air ducts giving you a hard time because they need to be sealed, but you just don’t know how to do that? Don’t worry! Indoor Comfort Solutions is here for your rescue. We deal in everything from installing, repairing, and maintaining your HVAC system. For the air ducts to work efficiently, they need to be sealed properly. That includes all the corners, bends, curves, and ductwork connections. We usually eliminate all the sealants using tapes, an aerosol, or a sealant. We have years of experience in this field, so you can easily rely on us for getting the job done for you.
Though, before jumping directly into the sealing process, we will double-check the leakage of your air duct by following these simple steps.
Visibly inspecting all the ductwork: For this, you would have to climb up the attic or go down the basement and have a look at all the visible ducts. We usually look at each section for any visible gaps, disconnections, or tears of any sort. Also, we look for areas that might have duct tape affixed to them because this is a clear sign that the ducts might have been repaired before.
Inspect the HVAC system by turning it on. Another method that we use for checking the leakage is by turning on the HVAC system. Then we return to the areas where the ductwork is accessible and see if we can feel the air against our hands. If we do, then that is a clear sign of air leakage!
Testing the HVAC air duct sealing is crucial for finding any possible leaks that will help us return to the problem areas and eliminate the leak.
The connection between duct leaks and energy loss
Timely checking air ducts is necessary because a leaking duct can cause energy loss. Any loose connections, gaps, damaged duct sections, discontinued duct runs will allow the air conditioners air to exit the duct system before they even reach the living room. That usually wastes a lot of energy, resulting in high utility bills. About 25% of the air is lost in most houses through these leaks. Sometimes people make the mistake of not getting the air ducts frequently checked because they think it is just a waste of money, but it is the other way around. Though ignoring spending money on the leakage will save you money for quite some time, it will not be good for your utility bills in the long run.
Hence, we suggest that you frequently hire HVAC air duct sealing companies. Also, our air duct cleaning service is just a call away if you are having difficulty finding the leakage yourself.
