At Aeroseal, we specialize in sealing ducts from the inside out. This efficient, fast, and non-toxic process can help reduce energy bills and improve air quality. On average, we recommend cleaning a general duct system every three to five years. However, with a properly sealed system, it can last several years longer, as dirt and debris cannot adhere to or take root on the surface of the sealant.
If you live in an old house, your ducts may not be sufficient for modern high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment. Ducts and their related components, joints and joists, begin to fail around age 15 and reach their maximum usability around 20 to 25 years. Ductwork also expands and contracts throughout the year. These changes over the years can cause you to separate and lose air. Leaks can increase your utility bills and contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Cracked ducts can suck up and disperse pollen, dust, and other impurities. Ducts in your home move large volumes of air whenever your HVAC system is turned on. This means that they must be tightly sealed to prevent air loss. Even well-sealed ducts lose more than 30% of the energy contained in hot or cold air, so you can imagine the impact of a small leak in those same ducts. First, sealing keeps the ducts clean, meaning there's less dirt in the air conditioning system, preventing the heat transfer needed to maintain comfort. In addition, some companies use duct sealants to finish the cleaning process, arguing that they reinforce the ducts.
Duct sealing is a process that involves coating the inside of air ducts with a specialized substance designed to prevent the formation of mold and mildew, prevent the spread of bacteria and even eliminate air leaks through small cracks and voids in the duct network. If you're looking for a reliable company to seal your pipelines in Palm Beach County, Florida, Aeroseal is what you're looking for. We offer comprehensive duct sealing services that allow you to identify the exact locations in your duct network where an air leak occurs and then quickly repair them. So how often should you seal your ductwork in Palm Beach County? The answer depends on several factors such as the age of your home, how often you use the HVAC system, and how well your ductwork is maintained. However, in a typical home about 20 percent of the air that passes through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.
