DUCT CLEANING AND SEALING INCREASES THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR HOME COMFORT SYSTEMS

 

A heating or air conditioning system runs more efficiently when it is well-maintained with seasonal tune-ups and cleanings. These services will also end up saving you money in the long run. Woodfin offers a full range of equipment maintenance services, including duct cleaning.

Air duct cleaning is essential to maintaining healthy indoor air. It reduces energy usage by up to 21 percent, which saves considerable money on your utility bill and lengthens your equipment’s lifespan.

Our duct-cleaning experts use specialized tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts then removes them with a high-powered vacuum cleaner. When your ducts are clean, your air will be cleaner, and your equipment will be free of accumulations and debris that can hinder performance and efficiency.

Regular air duct inspection is advised in order to prevent possible breakdowns and future replacement costs. A good way to remember is to have your air ducts inspected whenever you have your heating or air conditioning system serviced.

You might also consider duct sealing to eliminate the loss of heated or cooled air and to improve your home's energy efficiency, and an air purifier, which works with your heating and air conditioning units to remove nearly all airborne pollutants.

duct-sealing.jpgDuctwork is susceptible to leaks and disconnections. The government's Energy Star® program estimates that a typical system loses 20% of its conditioned air through holes in the ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

If your system is leaking, your equipment is working too hard and your energy bills are unnecessarily high. If you find that some rooms are receiving inadequate air or you notice your energy use rising, please call Woodfin or contact us online. Our experts will evaluate your ducts and seal them as necessary. Your home will be more comfortable, and you'll save money.

Here are some tips for ensuring the soundness of your duct systems:

  • Consider having a professional inspect your ductwork and repair it as necessary.
  • If you prefer to do it yourself, seal air leaks using mastic sealant or metal tape and insulating all the ducts that you can reach. (Never use duct tape, as it is not long-lasting.)
  • After sealing the ducts, wrap them in insulation to keep them from getting hot in the summer.
  • Make sure that the connections at vents and registers are well-sealed where they meet the floors, walls, and ceiling. These are common locations to find leaks and disconnected ductwork.
