Michael Bonsby HVAC & Plumbing Duct Sealing in Maryland & DC
Heating and air conditioning systems use air ducts to transfer the heated or cool air throughout the home. However, after years of wear and tear, you could have ducts that are leaking or cracked. When this happens, air can escape—which causes your HVAC system to work harder than it should, as well as many other dangers.
If your ducts are drafty and need to be sealed, contact the HVAC experts at Michael Bonsby HVAC & Plumbing. Give us a call at 301-990-7970 or schedule service online!
Signs of Leaking Air Ducts
Because ducts run through basements, floors, and walls, it can be difficult to know when your air ducts are leaking. However, there are several signs to look for if you believe you need duct sealing. If you notice any of the following signs, call an expert for duct sealing.
- Poor comfort – If you notice the air in your home is more stuffy than normal, certain rooms are a different temperature, or your home is simply not reaching a desired temperature, the comforting air from your HVAC unit could be leaking through your ducts.
- Strange smells – If you notice strange smells coming from your air vents, it could be because harmful chemicals are leaking in your air ducts.
- Higher energy bills – Do you feel like your utility bill is going up, but you haven’t changed the thermostat and the weather hasn’t been significantly different? It could be because the air from your heating and cooling unit is escaping through your air vents, which causes your heating and cooling unit to work harder.
- Hear or feel air in the basement – The largest section of air ducts are usually stored in the basement. If you feel or hear air escaping through your ducts, it could be time to call a professional for duct sealing.
Dangers of Leaking Air Ducts
If your air ducts are leaky and you are trying to avoid scheduling a repair, you could be causing more harm than good. When ducts have exposure to the outside air, mold, mildew, bugs, and rodents have access to get inside your ducts. When this happens and your HVAC unit turns on, you are spreading these particles throughout your home—which results in lower air quality and is harmful to you and anyone who breathes it in.
Don’t let you or your family breathe in harmful particles. Schedule duct sealing today!
