Independent studies show more than 90% of existing buildings in North America have leaky air ducts. In the United States, it is estimated that three out of every four homeowners lose between 20 and 40 % of the conditioned air in their duct systems through undetected leaks.
That means the chances are good that you could use some duct-sealing services from Pass One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to make your home more energy-efficient. For the past four decades, our company has provided superior HVAC services for customers Carbondale, Marion, Mt. Vernon, Herrin, Carterville, Sesser, Benton, West Frankfort and other communities throughout Southern Illinois.
Our certified technicians will seal your leaky ducts with Aeroseal®, a technological breakthrough product with a 10-year warranty and a life expectancy of 40 to 45 years.
What is Aeroseal® & How Does it Work?
Aeroseal® is a patented duct-sealing technology that takes care of your leaky ducts from the inside out. It uses polymer particles to seal the leaks from within by allowing the particles to stick to the edges of the leak and eventually cover and close the leak. This is done with the following 6-step process:
- Cover wall grilles and registers to ensure that air can escape only through leaks in your ducts.
- Spray sealant into the ducts to locate and seal the leaks.
- Keep the aerosol particles of the sealant moving and suspended in the airflow with constant air movement.
- When air pumped into the ducts exits through a leak, the suspended sealant sticks to the edges of the leak and slowly builds up.
- Leaks are sealed with very little sealant remaining in the ducts.
- The ducts are checked with a computer-generated analysis to verify the success of the procedure.
The Importance of Duct Sealing
Sealing leaks in your air ducts is important because ignoring them will result in:
- Higher energy consumption and higher energy bills
- Uneven spots for cooling and heating
- Poor air quality
- Diminished property value
- Increased chance for respiratory illness due to contaminants in leaky ducts
Ignoring the proper maintenance of your air ducts can lead to problems for your home and your family. Dirty air ducts will carry dust, debris, allergens and other harmful irritants to every corner of your house, lowering your indoor air quality.
To ensure that your HVAC circulates fresh, pure air that will not make your family members sick from airborne contaminants, it is essential to have your air ducts checked and cleaned periodically. Pass One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning provides superior duct-cleaning services for customers in Carbondale, Marion, Mt. Vernon, Herrin, Benton, West Frankfort, Carterville, Sesser and other communities throughout Southern Illinois.
Because we charge by the job, you never pay for slow technicians. Our NATE-certified crews will quote an up-front price before they start working and that is all you pay. That means no hourly rate and no surprises for you on the final bill.
When to Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned
For most homes, a duct cleaning every two years as part of a routine maintenance schedule is considered adequate. But some situations occur that should trigger an immediate duct cleaning to keep your home in mint condition. Those instances include:
- Moving into a new home
- After home renovations
- When your notice odors coming from your vents
- After installing a new HVAC system
- When family members show symptoms of a respiratory illness
Proper installation of ductwork is essential for efficient heating and cooling in your home. Poorly installed ducts will cause heating and cooling loss through air leaks that could cost you hundreds of dollars each year in wasted energy costs.
Leaky air ducts also will lower the indoor air quality of your home. They can introduce dust, debris, allergens, and contaminants into the air that you breathe.
