Air duct sealing and repairs are crucial for maintaining the efficiency and effectiveness of your HVAC system. When air ducts are not properly sealed, air can leak out, causing your system to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. This not only results in higher energy bills, but it can also lead to uneven heating and cooling throughout your home or business.
Furthermore, damaged or leaky air ducts can allow pollutants such as dust, mold, and allergens to circulate throughout your property, potentially causing health problems. By having your air ducts professionally sealed and repaired, you can improve the overall performance of your HVAC system, enhance indoor air quality, and save money on energy costs in the long run.

Lower Energy Bills
You may need air duct sealing if you notice uneven heating or cooling throughout your property, increased energy bills, or if you can feel air coming out of the ducts when they should be off. A professional inspection can determine if sealing is necessary.
Air duct sealing typically involves applying a special sealant material to the ductwork to prevent air leakage. The sealant can be applied from inside the ducts or outside, depending on the specific situation.
The cost of air duct sealing can vary depending on the size of your property, the extent of the damage, and the location of the ducts. On average, the cost can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. However, the savings on energy bills and improved indoor air quality can make it a worthwhile investment in the long run.
The Effects of Air Quality
It is essential to have high quality, clean indoor air that is free of pollutants. This is critical for your household to maintain good health. On average people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors. Breathing fresh air indoors can reduce health issues such as asthma, headache, irritation of the eyes, fatigue, nausea and long term health effects including respiratory disease. Even if no one in your house suffers from specific conditions such as asthma or chronic allergies, you may notice a significant improvement in mild symptoms like sneezing and coughing. Disinfecting the whole system will kill viruses, bacteria, and fungal growths like mold. A healthier indoor environment will benefit your family by helping everyone breathe easier.
