What is Duct Sealing?
Duct sealing is the process of making your existing duct work air tight without having to replace it. Duct Sealing is a budget-friendly way to improve the efficiency of your AC unit and lower your energy bills. By sealing any damage, wear and tear, or holes in the system your existing AC unit will be maximized. In conjunction with a brand new unit, your home will be cooler and more comfortable than ever before. With your duct work sealed, cool air will no longer escape into your walls, attic or crawl space ensuring the living area in your home is cooler.
Duct sealing is a great option for home owners who have duct work that is between 5-8 years old or that is damaged. In certain cases, duct work will need to be replaced rather than sealed. If you have questions regarding the state of your duct work and what the best option is for you, feel free to contact All Year Cooling and request your free ventilation system evaluation.
Duct Sealing vs. Duct Restoration
Wondering what the difference is between duct sealing and duct restoration? The process of Duct Sealing happens on the outside of the duct work, whereas Duct Restoration happens inside the duct work. The goal of sealing your duct work is to make your system more energy efficient without having to install new duct work. Duct restoration is beneficial in helping to remove mold and bacteria.
Duct Sealing is right for you if:
- Your energy bills seem too high
- Some of the vents in your home have less airflow than others
- You have previously dealt with pest issues in your home
- You duct work hasn’t been evaluated or addressed in 5 or more years
