Why Duct Sealing is a Vital Part of an Efficient Home
Posted on:Thursday, March 6, 2014 On the coldest of cold nights like the current ones as of late here in Dallas and Plano or the warmest ones on the way as the seasons change, improper duct sealing can be a major cause of discomfort inside our homes and our pocket books.

Homeowners all across North Texas and the Country for that matter are always looking for the most energy efficient and cost-effective ways to keep their homes nice and comfortable in the harshest seasons, often overlooking the importance of proper ductwork maintenance and sealing.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, leaky ductwork can account for 10-30% of total heating and cooling costs. That’s a sizable chunk of your hard earned dollars that could be spent elsewhere.

In the frigid winter and blazing hot summer here in Dallas and Plano, duct leakage lowers your system’s heating and cooling capacity, increases energy consumption, decreases indoor air quality and reduces your equipment’s reliability and life expectancy.

As heat and energy escapes through the ducts, some rooms become colder and less comfortable than others. Additionally, as the outside air sneaks in through the leaks, the air inside your home can dry out and become polluted with attic dust, allergens and/or chemicals.

In the colder winter months, like those we have seen this year here in Dallas and North Texas, the warm air from your furnace we pay good money to have pumped into our home to keep warm can also get forced out into the attic through the cracks and openings in your ducts. When this warmer air hits your cold roof, it can condense and in some instances even cause mold and mildew build up in your attic.

This mold and mildew can even affect and contaminate the same air that’s being pumped back into your home through leaks in the ducts on the return air side of the system.
