If you find that the HVAC system in your Winnetka, Illinois, home isn’t performing as well as it used to and your home seems to be accumulating dust faster than normal, consider having your ductwork Aerosealed. Let’s take a look at signs that let you know it’s time to have your ductwork sealed, as well as some of the benefits you will receive from an Aeroseal duct sealing.
HVAC System Efficiency is Dropping
If you notice that your HVAC system is not heating or cooling your house sufficiently and is struggling to push the air into your house, the ductwork may be coated with dirt and dust, plus there could be separations or leaks. Dirt and dust can infiltrate the ducting through small leaks and cracks that then accumulates inside the ductwork. This restricts airflow through the network. If there are leaks, conditioned air could be leaking into your attic, and the HVAC system then has to work harder and harder to reach the desired temperature in your home. Clean and sealed ducts will help keep your HVAC system at peak performance.
Energy and Repair Bills Are Rising
When your HVAC system is working hard, it places stress on it and can result in costly repairs or premature failure of the entire system. When the system is working hard, it uses more energy, and you will see a rise in your energy bills. Having clean and Aerosealed ductwork will help you save money.
Your Family Has More Respiratory Issues
If your ductwork has cracks or leaks, harmful pathogens such as dust mites and pollutants can enter your home and trigger allergy problems and asthma attacks. If you find that members of your family are experiencing unusual respiratory problems, have your ductwork cleaned and then Aerosealed to prevent further containments from being blown into your home.
Your Home Is Dustier Than Normal
When your furniture, bedding, and even your kid’s toys are getting dustier and dustier, that’s a sign that the accumulated dirt and dust from your leaky ductwork is getting blown inside. Cleaning and Aerosealing your ductwork will result in a cleaner and healthier house.
If you notice any of these issues, it’s a good idea to have your ducts cleaned. Give our experts at Ireland Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 847-388-0108 today to schedule your Aeroseal duct sealing service.
