Your air conditioner works hard to cool your home, so you want to make sure that the air is able to be delivered efficiently to every room. Unfortunately, many homes lose up to 20 percent of the air that’s delivered through their ductwork due to loose connections, leaks and holes. By duct sealing your home, you can give your air conditioner a helping hand and ensure that conditioned air gets where it needs to go.
Duct sealing involves finding and fixing any parts of your ductwork that allow air to leak in and out. Although some people choose to take this on as a do-it-yourself project, it’s most effectively done by a professional contractor. After inspecting your duct system, your contractor will fix any loose or disconnected ducts and seal off any holes or leaks.
If you have any questions about duct sealing, or if you’d like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Louis area heating and cooling company.
