If your home is heated and cooled with a forced air system, your ductwork is a critical element in your family’s comfort and health. Leaky ductwork doesn’t deliver the warm and cool air where it’s supposed to go, and can leak and cause numerous issues. Triple H Contracting can determine where you ducts are leaking with a no-cost energy audit that will also check the safety of your home’s systems.
What’s the Big Deal About Ducts?
Your home’s ductwork system provides insulated heat and cool air delivery throughout your Suffolk or Nassau county home. If it’s leaking, two things can happen:
- Your expensive heated or cooled air escapes before it reaches its destination, which creates an uncomfortable home environment.
- Contaminants and indoor air pollution can be sucked in and circulated throughout your home. These harmful allergens, dust, gases and particles can make family members sick.
Locating & Sealing Ducts Delivers Comfort Results
After our visual inspection of your ductwork, one of the tools we use in our no-cost energy audit is a duct blaster. The duct blaster uses a powerful fan to blow air and sometimes a little bit of test smoke through your system. This special, harmless vapor will seep out where leaks occur at connections, junctions or attachments to the air handler, furnace or AC unit.
Duct Sealing Improves Home Energy Efficiency
Duct sealing savings start immediately, which is why we believe in this simple fix for great results. In case you’re wondering, we don’t actually use duct tape—this is one repair it’s not qualified for! Our duct sealing equipment is a combination of tools including mastic glue to seal gaps and ductwork insulation to keep the energy from leaking out in unheated areas like attics, basements and crawlspaces. As a trained duct sealing contractor, we usually can spot and seal trouble spots quickly!
Ductwork Needs Good Connections
While we’re inspecting the duct seals, we’ll also take a look to ensure that your system is connected properly with cold air returns and delivery ducts routed the proper way. A poorly connected return air duct could be costing you energy dollars and overworking your furnace and central air conditioning.
Duct Sealing Provides Instant Benefits
Duct sealing is a very affordable home energy improvement that not only benefits your monthly budget, but also keeps your family breathing easy. And with affordable financing and incentives available through local and state sources, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to have this work completed.
