Having faulty ductwork in your building can result in several significant problems for home and business owners here in Chester, Colonial Heights, Glen Allen, Henrico, Mechanicsville, Midlothian, Moseley, Richmond, VA, and surrounding areas. Fortunately, Foster Plumbing & Heating offers Aeroseal® duct seal products and services to help lower your utility bills, increase your indoor comfort level, bolster HVAC system efficiency, and improve your indoor air quality.
Boost Energy-Efficiency and Control Utility Costs
Home and business owners who invest in sealing their ductwork can expect increased system efficiency and lower energy bills. In fact, Aeroseal® duct sealing can often pay for itself in energy savings. That’s because duct systems typically lose around 30 percent of the heating and cooling energy used to condition the air inside the average building. Making improvements to your ductwork can often be the most important energy improvement measure you can take.
Optimize System Performance and Increase Your Comfort
In addition to costing you more money on utilities, leaky ductwork can negatively impact the performance of your HVAC equipment and cause a noticeable drop in the comfort level of your building. Having a professional seal your ducts can help eliminate hot and cold spots in addition to balancing airflow and humidity. Comfort issues aside, problems with your ducts can force your heating and cooling systems to work harder in an attempt to reach the set temperature. This additional strain can contribute to the need for more frequent and more costly repairs, and it can ultimately shorten the lifespan of your equipment.
Keep Unwanted Contaminants Out of Your Ducts
While Aeroseal® duct seal products may not take an active role in improving indoor air quality, they do prevent dust, allergens, and other pollutants from being sucked into your ductwork. Homes and other buildings with leaky ductwork can experience a variety of IAQ issues.
- Excessive dust and more frequent filter changes
- Higher levels of airborne contaminants
- Problems controlling the humidity in your home
- Greater potential for organic growth inside your ducts
