At Advanced Home Comfort, we see your home as a complete, holistic system. We understand that the channels your air moves through are just as critical as the furnace or air conditioner that’s blowing air out to begin with. Our ductwork services cover all aspects of duct care and repair.
Are your ducts ideally placed for energy efficiency and comfort? Whether you need to update the placement of existing ducts, or you’re adding completely new ductwork to a historic home, our comfort specialists can help you identify the best approach and get new ducts installed quickly.
Your ductwork comprises a complex web of insulated tubes that turn and bend throughout the home. Over time, points with the weakest structural integrity will inevitably develop leaks, holes, and tears. Energy Star estimates that 20 to 30 percent of the average home’s air is lost through these openings. Our efficient duct sealing services can help you reclaim this lost air.
Aeroseal Duct Sealing
The Aeroseal duct sealing process uses a patented technology that puts escaped air under a lot of pressure while a special sealant is introduced. The additional pressure causes the polymer particles in the sealant to stick to the edges of the leak. The particles continue to stick to each other until the leaks are completely sealed. With sealed ductwork, your heating and cooling system will be under less strain, plus pollutants are no longer able to enter the stream of air in your ductwork.
Dirt and debris build up in your ducts over time. Bacteria, mold, fungi, and other hazards can lurk here unseen. The average home can collect up to 40 pounds of dirt, dust, and allergens in the ducts each year. The dirtier your ducts, the lower your indoor air quality. This is particularly hazardous if you have asthma and allergy sufferers, children, or elderly family members in your home.
You should schedule a duct cleaning about once every seven years. This will improve your indoor air quality and help open up the ducts so air can move more freely, delivering better efficiency and more even home comfort.
