Can Duct Sealing Improve Indoor Air Quality?

family-footer

As a Balch Springs, Texas, homeowner, you want to keep your home’s air free from dust, pet dander, and other contaminants year round. Changing your HVAC filter frequently and sticking to a regular cleaning schedule can help keep indoor air quality high. But, did you know that leaky ducts could be compromising your home’s air supply? Find out how duct sealing can improve indoor air quality.

Reduce Airborne Contaminants

Over time, most ductwork systems develop leaks, cracks, and other forms of wear and tear. These cracks may be small, but leaky ducts can lead to big problems. Airborne contaminants like dust, pollen, pet dander, and even volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can pass through these cracks and then circulate through your home via the ductwork system. At Willard Cooling, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical, we often recommend duct sealing as a straightforward way to address leaky ducts and reduce the indoor pollution levels in your home.

Alleviate Allergy and Asthma Issues

If you or your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, you’ll be relieved to know that duct sealing can help alleviate symptoms. Naturally, limiting the amount of dust, pet dander, and pollen in your home’s ductwork can reduce the number of sneeze-inducing particles in the air, helping you to breathe much more easily. For even more allergy and asthma relief, be sure to replace your HVAC system’s filter every 30 days or talk with our team about a whole-home air filter.

Limit Backdrafting

Many common gas-powered home appliances, including dryers and water heaters, produce carbon monoxide during combustion. When operating normally, their ventilation systems are designed to move this dangerous gas out of your home and away from your family. However, leaky ducts can capture and reintroduce this harmful substance back into your home, a situation known as backdrafting. Duct sealing can mitigate backdrafting, improving your home’s air quality and keeping your family safe and healthy.
