reasons to seal ducts

Aeroseal duct sealing is a must-have HVAC service that allows Sweeny, Texas, homeowners to save money on their utility bills. Whether you’ve noticed hot spots in your home or you’ve had to dust more frequently, Aeroseal duct sealing can help.

What is Aeroseal Duct Sealing?

Aeroseal technology makes residential duct sealing easier and more effective than ever. This patented, scientifically proven method allows us to quickly seal your home’s ductwork from the inside, filling both small and large holes. This helps reduce the amount of airflow that may be lost in unoccupied areas of the home, such as the attic, basement, or crawl space. It even improves the airflow in the second story of your home, which is generally more difficult to heat in the winter and cool in the summer.

The process starts with a system inspection, which is conducted by one of our certified technicians. This allows us to determine the amount of leakage present in your ductwork. We’re able to locate any cracks and openings using an Aeroseal blower system. The process involves sealing off all registers and vents and forcing air through any leaks in the ductwork. Once this is done and leaks are identified, we then close any leaks or gaps with a special sealant, keeping the remainder of the air duct free from the sealant coating.

After sealing any leaks, our technicians then perform a second system inspection with computer software to ensure every gap and leak has been identified and sealed. The entire process takes anywhere from four to six hours to complete.

What are the Benefits of Duct Sealing?

Duct sealing comes with numerous benefits. Mainly, most homeowners are concerned with indoor comfort levels, and any leaks in the ductwork can result in drafts or hot spots. Properly sealing the ducts using the Aeroseal method boosts your home’s comfort almost immediately. You’ll experience a noticeable improvement in your HVAC system’s temperature regulation.

Another advantage of duct sealing is that it improves your home’s indoor air quality. Leaks in the ductwork can allow dust, insulation particles, household chemicals, and outdoor pollution to enter the home, aggravating allergy and asthma symptoms. If you or a loved one suffers from chronic sinus issues, coughing, sneezing, or other allergic reactions, scheduling a duct sealing may help alleviate these symptoms.

Duct sealing can also improve your home’s safety. Appliances that run on combustion gases, such as your clothes dryer, water heater, or furnace, release their gases through the ventilation systems. When you have leaky ductwork, those toxic fumes can backdraft into your living space instead of going outside, which increases your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Having your ductwork sealed eliminates this risk.

Finally, duct sealing helps protect the environment. Most of the energy used in our homes is produced from burning fossil fuels, which has been shown to contribute to climate change, acid rain, and smog. By using less energy in your home every day, you’ll be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint and limit the amount of air pollution generated and released into the atmosphere.

How Does Duct Sealing Save Money?

Investing in Aeroseal duct sealing translates to energy savings, making the cost of the service well worth it. In fact, sealing leaky ductwork can boost your heating and cooling energy efficiency by such a noticeable amount that you’ll probably start to see savings as early as your next utility bill.

What’s more, if you’re planning to have a new, more efficient heating and cooling system installed in the near future, having your existing ductwork sealed may allow you to purchase a smaller, more affordable system. It can even boost your home’s resale value.

With so many benefits that Aeroseal duct sealing provides, why wouldn’t you want to invest in this innovative service?
