Are You Losing Money Through Your Air Ducts?

There are a lot of good reasons to get your air ducts cleaned. Clean air ducts help your Portland, Beaverton or Vancouver area home to stay free of dust and mold. And that can help you fight off allergy symptoms.

Having clean air ducts can also help your HVAC system run more efficiently. And that helps you save money in heating and energy costs. Who doesn’t like to save money?

But there is another important part to maintaining your air ducts. And it’s just as important as cleaning them. If your air ducts aren’t properly sealed you could be losing a lot of extra cash.

When your ducts have holes, a lot of air leaks out, which means it takes more air to cool or warm your home.

But why would you holes in your air ducts? Sometimes builders accidently puncture your ducts during installation. Other times, plumbers, electricians or other contractors can damage your air ducts while working on your home.

In any case, it doesn’t really matter how the damage got there, you still need to fix it. 

You can fix leaky ducts in several ways, including spray foam and caulking, which is fire resistant. You could also try to locate and patch these leaks yourself. But calling an experienced professional air duct cleaning company is an even better idea. That way, you’ll get the job done right.
