The Reasons You Want Leaky Air Ducts Repairs

October 17th, 2022

You spend hard-earned money to heat and cool your home. You want every penny spent on those utility bills to equal comfort for you and your family, which is exactly why you need to know about leaky air ducts. Thankfully, air ducts can be tested and sealed to fix all of the problems we’re about to discuss. 

Consistent Comfort Across Your Whole Home

Do you have one room in your house that just doesn’t cool off, even if the rest do? That’s a telltale sign of a leaky air duct. Cold air is traveling toward that room, but it’s leaking before it ever reaches the vent.

If you put your hand up to your vent and feel cold air, that doesn’t mean there’s no leakage. A good amount of cold air will still reach the vent and fill the room, just not to the same effect that it could be.

Lower Energy Bills to Save Money

Energy bill prices are only going up. When you seal up leaky air ducts, your AC has to run for less time, requiring less energy use. This may seem small at first, but it compounds over time and saves hundreds of dollars per year. You don’t need your ducts sealed every single year, so this investment can save you money for years to come.

Keeping Dust at Bay

Do you have one room in your home that’s just dustier than others? Because there’s less air circulation in a room with poor ventilation, dust settles and doesn’t move around making its way to your air intake to be filtered.

Leaks in air ducts can actually inject more dust into a room. When your AC is off, dust accumulates through crevices and settles in your vent. When the air conditioner kicks on, it pushes that dust into the air of your room.

Less Wear and Tear on Your AC Unit

Air duct leakage can force your AC to run for longer, which puts more wear and tear on every component. If your thermostat is located in an area that isn’t being cooled off properly, the thermostat doesn’t recognize that the rest of the home may be cooled off.

It sends a signal to your AC to stay on until it hits the desired temperature. Sealing air duct leaks can help prolong the life of your AC components and save even more money over time.

Can an Air Purifier Really Make a Difference for My Home?

September 12th, 2022

If you’re worried about the quality of air in your house, you’re not alone. Today’s homeowners have much greater concerns about unhealthy pollutants, microbes, and germs floating around the air they breathe. And many have good reasons to. 

The reason that so many homes today have worse air quality than before is because construction builds houses “tighter” so the buildings are more energy efficient: it’s harder to lose heat in winter or gain it in summer. But this tight seal on the house also traps indoor air and the contaminants inside it—and there are more sources of indoor pollutants in households than ever before. Your home’s air can contain a mixture of chemicals and volatile organic compounds along with ordinary dust, lint, dander, and pollen. 

It’s with these smaller particles that an air purifier can really make a difference for your home!
