According to the experts at ENERGY STAR, sealing your ductwork can have a number of positive effects on indoor air quality and overall enjoyment of your Texas home. Making a relatively small investment in sealing your ducts can also pay off in lower utility bills and improved comfort during every season of the year. Here are five of the most important benefits of duct sealing for your home and your family.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Sealing your ductwork can reduce the workload of your HVAC system by reducing the loss of conditioned air through cracks and gaps. This can lower your heating and cooling bills to provide you with added financial resources to spend on life's little luxuries or other monthly expenses.
Reduced Dust and Particulates
Particulates and pollutants in your ductwork can have a serious effect on the health of your family, especially for those with respiratory ailments like asthma or emphysema. By sealing your ducts, you can significantly improve the indoor air quality of your home and can reduce the impact of dust and other allergens on sensitive members of your family.
Added Comfort for Your Family
Fewer cracks and leaks in your ductwork can prevent drafts from reducing your indoor comfort during the winter and can stop cold air from escaping your home during the hot summer months in Beaumont.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends duct sealing as part of an integrated approach to green building and green-friendly living. According to EPA figures, roughly 20 percent of the air circulated by the HVAC system in an average home slips through the cracks in the ductwork. Duct sealing services can increase the energy efficiency and green-friendly credentials of your Texas home.
Improved Safety for Your HVAC System
In some case, cracks and leaks can allow dangerous gases and fumes to enter your ducts and circulate inside your home to cause potentially serious health problems for you and your family. By sealing these cracks, you can reduce the risks of hazardous gases and pollutants in your living areas.
