When it gets hot inside, the first reaction is usually to blame the air conditioner for being broken, old, or weak. Sometimes though, the problem lies within the air ducts, an often overlooked aspect of AC systems. About 20-30 percent of the cool air gets lost due to poorly constructed or worn out ducts. If system happens to be worn out, it can cost you anything from your peace of mind to your money.
How do you know if you have worn-out or bad ductwork? Many people experience humidity, hot and cold spots, poor air quality, sounds coming from the vents, and high electric bills when the ducts are faulty. So it might not be that old AC’s fault entirely, if your home just won’t cool down, there may be another culprit.
The upside is that duct sealing does away with all these annoyances and flaws by patching up any holes or cracks. The technician may also seal together sections of the ductwork to make it as efficient as possible. Once your ducts are properly sealed, you’ll immediately feel the cool breeze of relief!
You can breathe easy knowing that dirt, allergens and dust will be keeping out of your air supply. Those with allergies may feel much better when they wake up in the morning! You won’t have to crank your AC to overdrive either, duct sealing will improve your monthly utility bills, even in the harsh Arizona summer.
Sometimes ducts are in hard to reach places such as crawlspaces, garages, and attics, so DIY is not always the best option when it comes to taking care of your air quality. Call Weather Masters in Mesa with your Duct Repair and Sealing needs! We’re not the biggest, but the best!
