Air Duct Sealing

What do leaky ducts have to do with my indoor air quality?

Your indoor air quality is affected by many factors, including the condition of your ductwork. But what about humidity? Understanding how these 3 factors come into play, and how air duct sealing can help eliminate some of the issues associated with humidity, can help make your air conditioner more efficient at the same time you improve your air quality.

Humidity and Pollutants

The number one concern with excessive humidity in your home is mold. The higher the level of moisture in the air the more likely mold is to grow. When you have mold in your home you’re severely compromising your air quality.

Mold can be toxic and can cause severe health risks, especially if there is prolonged exposure. Reducing humidity levels can reduce your risk of mold as well as reduce the presence of other forms of bacteria and air pollutants that thrive in warm, humid environments.

Humidity and Your Air Ducts

Leaky ducts in your HVAC system can pose many problems. You’ll have a loss of cool air making your air conditioner work harder to try to keep your house at the desired temperature. You’ll also find that when there are leaks in your ductwork it can cause excessive humidity, which can lead to water damage in areas of your home. Sealing your air ducts can help eliminate the issue of moisture damage and lack of humidity control in your house.

Reducing humidity levels is just one of the benefits of proper air duct sealing. For more information on how to reducing humidity and improving your indoor air quality, contact the team at All City Heat and Air by calling 704-545-2000 or by clicking here.
