If your home in Denver, North Carolina, has a forced-air HVAC system, it’s likely that your ducts are wasting energy. According to the United States Department of Energy, homeowners lose 30 cents out of every dollar they spend on heating and cooling. We can all blame leaks and poorly connected ducts for the loss. Read on to learn how Aeroseal duct sealing helps you minimize the amount of energy and money you waste via your ductwork.
Increase Your Overall Comfort
Without professional duct sealing, you’re vulnerable to walking or resting in hot or cold spots throughout your home. Duct sealing eliminates those uncomfortable spots.
Conserve Energy and Save Money
When you lose warm conditioned air in the winter air via leaks, your heating system has to operate longer to compensate. With duct sealing, you decrease run times and, as a result, reduce the wear and tear on your equipment.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality is one the biggest environmental threats in the United States. And holes in your ductwork create entry points for pollutants. Duct sealing removes these entry points, and it prevents harmful particles from affecting your family’s health.
Enjoy Peace of Mind
Aeroseal duct sealing is made of a water-based solution and a UL-tested sealing material, which aren’t harmful to your health. They both also don’t leave behind a lingering odor. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has no exposure limit for this vinyl acetate polymer.
Don’t wait until the middle of winter to make sure your home’s energy envelope is airtight. Otherwise, you’ll pay more than you have to to heat your home through the holiday.
