How Your Ductwork Can Become Leaky

Monday, February 13th, 2023

You would never set sail on the ocean, or even a small river or lake, with a leaky boat. But plenty of homeowners are content to run their heating and cooling systems with leaky ducts. They often don’t realize that they have ducts with leaks, but even if they do know, they may shrug it off as not that big a deal.

Although leaky ducts won’t put your life at risk the way a leaky boat would, it’s still not a good situation. When ducts develop air leaks, they cause several problems for a home:

  • A rise in heating and cooling costs because of all the air that’s getting away
  • Poor comfort, with hot and cold spots appearing around the house and poor airflow from the vents

The best way to counteract this problem is to arrange for professional duct sealing in Riverdale, GA with our team. We’ll use our training and the best tools available to make your ducts airtight once again.

How Your Ductwork Could Be Costing You Money

Monday, October 25th, 2021

What is the condition of your home’s ductwork? You probably don’t have an answer to this question because you can’t see most of the ducts in the house. They’re hidden in walls, ceilings, and the attic. That makes it easy to not think about the ducts much at all, as if they won’t change over the years.

But ducts can suffer damage, sag with age, and have troubles due to poor installation. This can lead to the ducts having air leaks. These air leaks are how your ducts could become costly for you—seemingly small problems that turn into energy thieves. This isn’t a rare occurrence, either.
