Are Your Air Ducts Costing You Money?

Your air ducts shouldn’t cost you money, but they do!

Consider these findings from studies by the Department of Energy:

  • On average, 30 cents of every $1 spent on heating and cooling a home disappears into thin air due to leaky ducts.
  • 25% to 60% of heated and cooled air doesn’t make it to its intended room.
  • Duct leakage in homes costs homeowners $25 billion a year in utility costs.
  • About 50% of the average home’s utility bill is spent on heating and air conditioning.

Many homeowners don’t ever think about leaky air ducts, but the fact is they may be drastically reducing your home comfort and increasing your energy bills. Whether a home is old or new, leaky ducts cost homeowners money while putting undue stress on heating and air conditioning systems by forcing them to work harder than they need to. This can lead to shortened equipment lifespan, more frequent repairs, and sudden failure on the hottest or coldest days … which is when you need them the most.

Rooms in home with leaky ducts means some rooms are too hot while others are too cold

Comfort is More Than a Number on a Thermostat

Does your home have some rooms that are too hot, or others that are too cold?

Leaky ducts significantly contribute to the warmth and cooling of a home. Even the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems cannot control the amount of comfort you experience in your living spaces if there are leaking ducts. The loss of cool and warm air to the wrong places inside, outside or in the unconditioned spaces of a home is virtually eliminated with Aeroseal duct sealing because our patented sealing technology seals the ducts airtight. With Aeroseal, hard to heat or cool rooms will have even temperatures and will be more comfortable. Humidity levels are also easier to control after an Aeroseal.

Consider these results from recent Aeroseal duct sealing jobs we’ve completed:

Create a Safer, Healthier Home

In addition to higher comfort levels and lower energy bills, Aeroseal duct sealing also results in a safer, healthier home. Why? Because heating and air conditioning systems often pull air from the dirtiest parts of your home, such as walls, attics and basements.

As a result, most household dust contains dust mites, mold, mildew, pollen, animal dander and rodent urine and feces. Many of these contaminants are recirculated through the air systems in your home, aggravating respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies, and spreading bacteria and viruses such as Strep Throat and the common cold.

In fact, poor indoor air quality has become one of the Top 5 Environmental Risks to Public Health, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

  • Leaks pull mold, dust and other pollutants into your home causing indoor air quality issues and have potential to create harmful allergy problems.
  • Leaks contribute to safety issues related to backdraft of appliance fumes, auto exhaust and radon gases being released into your home.

How does Aeroseal work?

With air ducts often tucked into ceilings, walls, attics and basements, your heating and air conditioning system can be difficult to access. Locating and addressing leaks one by one is time-consuming, inefficient and ineffective. Without the proper training and tools, ductwork can easily be damaged.

Instead of relying on imperfect and outdated methods, Sanford Temperature Control offers our customers cutting-edge technology. With Aeroseal Duct Sealing, we cut down on time and expenses, avoid mess, and successfully eliminate up to 90% of air leakage … or more.

Using a computer-guided procedure, airborne adhesive particles are blown into ductwork, sealing cracks, holes and imperfections that allow air to escape, while filling openings up to one inch in diameter.

If you’d like to enjoy any of the following, then Aeroseal might be the solution for you.

  • Lower your energy bills
  • Prevent fumes and odors
  • Create healthier indoor air
  • Enhance comfort by maximizing airflow
  • Reduce the stress and workload on your HVAC system
  • Extend the lifespan of your equipment
