If you notice that your Baltimore, Maryland, home’s energy bills are rising or that your heating and cooling system isn’t running as well as it should be, it may be time to have your air ducts cleaned and sealed. If your air ducts aren’t allowing proper airflow throughout the house, or if the air is leaking out, you may be throwing away a lot of money over time. Let’s look at three reasons why having your air ducts sealed can help you save money.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
If your ducts are full of dust, dirt, and outside pollutants, not only is the airflow going to be restricted in your home, but those nasty contaminants will be blown throughout your house. These contaminants can trigger allergies or an asthma attack which may mean a trip to the doctor’s office. Clean, properly sealed ducts can prevent those pollutants from entering your home.
Reduced Repair and Replacement Costs
When your air ducts are not properly sealed, the entire HVAC system has to work very hard trying to push the cooled or heated air through. Over time, the strain on the system will reduce its efficiency, and you will eventually have to have it repaired or replaced. Consider asking your professional HVAC company to apply the new state-of-the-art Aeroseal duct sealing solution to extend the life of your ducting and entire HVAC system.
Reduced Costs for Air Filter Replacements
Air filters are one of the first lines of defense in keeping your home’s air clean. If you have dirty ducts, then the air filters will have to work harder to capture the gunk flowing through the ductwork, increasing your costs as you replace them more frequently. Clean ducting equals cleaner air filters, which saves you money on filter replacements.
