Can Duct Sealing Reduce the Amount of Dust in My Home?
Monday, March 09, 2015
Cut back on dust indoors with duct sealing

Duct leaks undoubtedly contribute to the dust levels in your home, but they also negatively impact energy efficiency.

Does a clean house go hand-in-hand with energy efficiency? It just might. There are many things that will affect the amount of dust that travels into and around your home, and one of those things is your ductwork. Your ducts can also affect your energy efficiency. Wondering how it is all related? Here's a breakdown:

Duct Sealing and Dust

If you have any kind of leaks in your air ducts, those leaks can allow dust to travel back through your HVAC system and into your house. This is especially true if the leaks are near the air return vents. If you think you're sick of dusting normally, try it with leaky ducts! It's nearly impossible.

Sealing those holes will help prevent the dust from circulating throughout your house. It can also reduce the chances of mold moving through the ducts and getting into your air.

Duct Sealing and Energy Efficiency

When ducts leak it can decrease energy efficiency by as much as 20%. Instead of the air being circulated through your home to achieve your desired temperature, some of it is getting routed through those holes and leaks, which makes it harder for your heating and cooling system to do its job. Sealing the leaks will not only reduce the dust in your home but will increase the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling system and, best of all, could lower your utility bills.

The most effective way to cut down on dust and increase your HVAC system energy efficiency is to hire a licensed HVAC contractor to inspect and seal your ducts.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
