One of the most important parts of a forced-air heating and cooling system is the ductwork, but it is also one of the most neglected areas of the system. It may surprise you to find out that there is a big chance your air ducts have cracks and holes throughout them that may make it more difficult for your heater and air conditioner to operate. Poorly sealed ducts cause a lot of problems for the heating and air conditioning systems in your home, as well as for your monthly bills.

The majority of homes have some level of leakage in their ductwork. When air leaks out of the ducts, it cannot make it to the rooms of your home as easily. This means that your home takes a lot longer to cool off or heat up. There may be hot spots around the home, or drafty rooms that never seem to heat up quickly enough. Additionally, a breach in the ductwork may allow contaminants to infiltrate the HVAC system. Fiberglass from the insulation in your attic, for example, may get sucked into the ductwork and travel out to the rooms of you home.
Too much duct leakage can also cost you. When air leaks out to the attic or crawlspace in your home, you essentially pay to cool or heat an unoccupied space. Additionally, your air conditioner and heater have to run for longer than an average cycle. This runs up your bills and makes it difficult for the system to function properly. Your air conditioner and heater are sized precisely for the space in your home, and any changes can result in wear and tear on your system. While duct sealing comes at a cost, the long-term benefits for your comfort and for your HVAC system are usually worth it.
