If you dissect your energy bill, you will realize a major chunk of the bill comprises of heating and cooling your home. Hence, if your home is riddled with leaking ducts, you can be certain your pocket will continue taking a huge hit, so will your ability to stay comfortable indoors. So, what is the solution for leaky air ducts? It actually is simple – professional duct sealing.

Does Your Home Have Leaky Ducts?

Before you decide you want the air ducts in your home professionally sealed, it is best to first figure out whether you have leaky air ducts.

Your HVAC system cannot function without air ducts. These ducts transport heated and cooled air to the different parts of your home. But if these ducts are not insulated or spring a leak, the interiors of your home will either be hot (in summer) or cold (in winter). The U.S. Department of Energy states leaky ducts can result in 30 percent loss of energy from an average home. That is a huge loss; and most people don’t even realize they are losing so much energy and money as air ducts are installed out of sight.

Some of the signs your home is suffering from leaky ducts are as follows:

  • Hot and cold spots in your home

  • Rattling sounds emanating from around the house

  • Low air pressure from the air supply outlets

If you notice any of these, you definitely require professional duct sealing and you shouldn’t waste a single moment calling in a reliable and trustworthy professional.

Advantages of Having Ducts Sealed Professionally

Getting the air ducts sealed professionally is not just about saving money and making your home more energy efficient; it also is a way of performing preventive maintenance to ensure major problems do not occur later on.

When you opt for professional duct sealing, the technician will initially inspect the ducts thoroughly to ascertain the areas of leak. During this assessment, damaged ducts and tangled ducts are fixed before they are sealed to minimize energy loss. Some of the benefits you will enjoy are as follows:

A More Efficient HVAC System: If the ducts are leaking out heated or cooled air, your HVAC system will not perform optimally or efficiently. This is true even if you spend money to purchase the most efficient system in the market. Once the ducts are sealed properly, you will notice a significant change in the comfort level of your home. Your HVAC system will not have to work hard to heat or cool your living spaces.

Improved Indoor Air Quality: Leaking ducts can have an adverse effect on the indoor air quality, as the ducts become a source of pollutants and allergens. Once the ducts are sealed, indoor air quality improves noticeably and you also will find your allergies reducing.

Saving Money: With professional duct sealing, the HVAC system becomes more efficient and this, in turn, reduces energy losses and prevents heated or cooled air from escaping via the leaks. Hence, you will save money on heating and cooling your home. Contact Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning today to have your ducts sealed the right way.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation.
