To get the most out of your heating and cooling system, you need to ensure you have reliable ductwork to transport your air effectively and efficiently. As you get ready to transition from using your furnace to using your air conditioning system, now is the perfect time to schedule ductwork services in Orlando, FL
In addition to installing well-designed ductwork from the beginning, cleaning and sealing your ducts can prevent issues with your heating and cooling system by improving its performance and by helping to boost energy efficiency.
Why Should I Get My Ducts Cleaned?
Airborne particles have the ability to pass through your ductwork when you turn your forced-air distribution system on. These particles include dust, pet dander, tree pollen, and other various allergens. Not only is this inconvenient, if you suffer from allergies this becomes very uncomfortable.
Airborne particles aren’t the only thing to worry about. Ducts may experience mold growth if there is too much moisture, could become infested with insects or rodents, or could become clogged with excessive amounts of debris.
What about Duct Sealing?
Over time, your ductwork endures wear and tear just like any other appliance in your home. Various things can affect the condition of your ducts. This includes temperature as well as pressure fluctuations. In addition to accumulating debris, your ducts may develop tears, loose connections, and small holes that could lead to poor performance.
If your ducts are damaged, then your system is not heating or cooling at peak efficiency, which wastes energy and money. Also, before you attempt to seal your ducts yourself, you should know that the product everyone now knows as “duct tape” is not actually designed for sealing heating and ventilation ducts. Professional mastic sealing is the best way to ensure your ducts are sealed properly.
