How Duct Sealing Helps Reduce Your Utility Bills

You can achieve big savings on utility bills by taking simple measures to maximize energy efficiency. Sealing ducts properly is a fairly simple task, yet it can make a big impact on your energy bills.

The process can also make your home more comfortable as sealing ducts properly eliminates air leaks and draft. If you’re wondering whether sealing your ductwork will make a difference in your home comfort or utility bills, consider the following questions:

  • Are some rooms in your home too hot or too cold?
  • Are there irregular temperatures between rooms?
  • Are your heating and cooling bills higher than you think they should be?
  • Do you have spider webs or dirty carpet corners?

If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, there is a very good chance that sealing your HVAC ductwork can make a difference. Nearly 20% of the air you pay to heat and cool can be lost due to air leaks through faulty or improperly sealed ductwork.

The simple solution is sealing your ductwork, which is the highway that carries your heated and cooled air throughout your residence. The main ducts we recommend getting sealed are those going through your attic, crawl space, garage, and basement. Wrapping them in insulation is another way to maximize energy efficiency.

Many homeowners aren’t sure how to seal ductwork or properly wrap and attach the insulation.
