What Is Duct Cleaning and Sealing?
Duct cleaning refers to the sanitation of different components of forced air systems. The components include grilles, registers, supply and return air ducts, coils, and fans. Our technicians use negative pressure technology to eliminate foreign objects and contaminants from your unit during duct cleaning.
Duct sealing is when our technicians use a duct sealant to cover gaps on your ducts that result in air leaks. Other materials like duct tapes can also seal the gaps, but sealant is more effective. Duct sealing traps and transfers fresh air into your ducts while keeping poor air outside.
Reasons For Duct Cleaning
All of your home’s air flows through the ducts several times every day, and that’s the air you and your family breathe. As such, you want the air to be the cleanest possible. Duct cleaning removes dirt and contaminants from the registers and diffusers in ducts in each room. There are several/ benefits to regularly cleaning your ductwork, including:
- Removing odors
- Promoting home safety
- Facilitating the discovery of other problems
Food preparation, paint fumes, tobacco, mold, animal droppings, etc., contribute to odors in your duct system. Dust accumulation, too, causes a musty scent in your ducts. So, every time your system runs, the odors flow into the house.
Air duct cleaning removes all particles that trap odor to give you a fresher scent. Besides, rodents and other small animals are less likely to find a hideout in clean ducts. So, you will not have to agonize about or deal with animal dung or fur.
Keeps Your Home Safe
Lint, dirt, and other materials accumulate in your ducts over time. When the elements heat up, they might ignite and cause a fire. Fire outbreaks damage valuable property and put your family’s life at risk. The risk is higher if you use propane for your stove, furnace, or fireplace.
Regular duct cleaning removes the combustible particles and keeps your home safe from fire. The heat generated by the furnace does not heat particles within the ducts. Instead, the heat is transferred into your home’s air without obstructions.
Facilitates Discovery of Other Problems
Professional duct cleaning starts with an inspection to determine the location and severity of the dirt. Then, your technician uses various methods, like video inspection, to check out your ducts. As a result, you do not get a solution to the dirt problem only but other technical issues within your ducts.
A technician discovers other hidden problems that you would have otherwise missed during an inspection. Other duct problems include damaged, disconnected, and non-insulated ducts. So, your technician does all the necessary repairs to leave your ducts in perfect condition. The minor repairs prevent extensive damage and costly repairs or replacements in the future.
Reasons for Duct Sealing
The furnace pushes warm air while the air conditioner pushes cool air through the duct into various rooms. However, if you have punctures or leaks in one of your air ducts, some of your rooms will be cooler or warmer than you intend. Besides, contaminants pollute your indoor air and overwork your unit. The good part is that duct sealing solves the mentioned problems in the ways discussed below.
Duct leaks contribute to 20%-30% of air loss in your home. As a result, your HVAC works harder and expends more energy to replace the lost air. In other words, 20%-30% of your energy bills are thrown away since you do not benefit from the energy consumed.
Duct sealing combats energy loss and improves the efficiency of your duct system. So, your HVAC’s energy cools and heats your home as required. Also, no air is lost through gaps and cracks, so your utility bills reduce.
Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Air ducts run through undesirable areas of your home, such as wall interiors, crawl spaces, and attics. Therefore, air infiltrating through duct leaks into your home carries contaminants from such undesirable areas. Examples of the contaminants are allergens, dirt, and debris, which flow in with the clean air and reduce your IAQ.
Duct sealing keeps allergens and contaminants from your indoor air. So, if you have family members with asthma and allergies, duct sealing reduces allergic reactions and improves health. Duct cleaning also reduces the frequency of cleanups because less dust settles on home surfaces and materials.
Protect and Improve HVAC Efficiency
If your ducts have leaks, your HVAC must run more cycles and operate more frequently. The extra work increases the rate of wear and tear, breakdowns, and repairs. If you continue to use a worn-out or broken unit, you strain other vital components like the compressor and motor. In the worst case, your HVAC will fail, and you will have to replace the whole unit.
Duct seals cut down operation times hence less wear and tear. As a result, you get fewer breakdowns, and your system stays in shape for a long time. You also avoid frequent replacement costs and instead enjoy the services of your system until the end of its life.
