Air Duct Sealing Service

An air duct leak creates an extremely vulnerable spot in your home or commercial HVAC system. It can make your space extremely uncomfortable and your AC may not run efficiently. Improperly sealed air ducts can also strain your air conditioning system and accelerate wear and tear, leading to costly repairs and replacements.


Signs That You Require Duct Sealing

In the vast majority of homes, ductwork is installed behind walls, in the ceiling, and under the floor. But there are a few signs of leaks in your duct system, such as:

Decreased Heating or Cooling Performance: If one room or area isn’t getting enough hot or cold air, the ductwork serving that location may have a large hole or leak, or it may have collapsed.

Higher Utility Bills: An increase in home energy usage and a higher monthly utility bill can mean your heating and cooling system is working harder to compensate for a significant loss of air.

Loud Noise: Leaky ducts tend to make noise such as whistling, flapping, rattling, hissing, and rumbling. If you hear any of these sounds, contact NexGen for a ductwork inspection.

Benefits Of Duct Sealing

Duct sealing can have numerous benefits. Once your ductwork is properly sealed, there should be an immediate decrease in energy usage as more of the heated or cooled air produced by your HVAC will reach every room. Repairing holes and leaks prevents contaminants from entering ductwork and polluting your indoor air. This includes dust, pollen, mold, rodents, and insects. A damaged duct, depending on its location, can cause garbage odors; duct sealing can stop this from happening. Your home will also be more comfortable as cooled or heated air will be more evenly distributed.
