Air Duct Sealing
In Central Illinois homes with forced-air heating and cooling, a significant amount of energy escapes through the duct system—up to 30 percent. Nearly a third of what you pay to heat and cool your home could disappear through leaky ducts, and roughly 30 percent of the comfort you pay for never makes its way into your living areas for you to enjoy.
At MB Heating and Cooling, we provide every customer the following benefits and more:
- Low financing terms
- Deep discounts through our service agreements
- 100 percent guarantee on our work
Why wait to see if you have leaky ductwork? Give MB Heating and Cooling a call today or schedule an appointment online for a free consultation. Our NATE-certified specialists can take an accurate pressurized reading of your air ducts to determine if there is excessive air loss and recommend whether you need a replacement.
Air Duct Sealing in Taylorville
Air duct sealing eliminates those gaps, loose connections, and fallen sections that allow your heated and cooled air to escape. Your living areas maintain their comfort with sealed ducts. Leaky ducts also force your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to work overtime to make up for the loss, consuming energy and costing you money.
Leaky ducts can negatively impact indoor air quality, as airborne pollutants and unpleasant odors can infiltrate your ductwork and mix with your indoor air supply. Air duct sealing closes these points of entry to protect your indoor air supply from contamination.
How Do You Tell If Your Ducts Are Leaking?
Duct leaks are sometimes hard to detect—they hide behind walls, ceilings, and floors, making it difficult to do a visual inspection. Here are some symptoms produced by duct leaks, so you know when you need to address this issue:
- Higher energy bills
- More dust and dirt inside your home
- Heating and cooling are uneven throughout the home
- Hard to keep certain indoor areas at comfortable temperatures
Do you notice any of these signs? If so, book an appointment today to have one of our professionals take a look. We will never recommend changes to your HVAC system unless we are confident it will benefit you and your loved ones.
Why Professional Duct Sealing Works Best
There are products easily obtainable at your local hardware store for do-it-yourself (DIY) duct sealing. The problem with this is most homeowners don’t know which to use (hint: duct tape isn’t what you need)!
In addition to materials issues, duct leaks are often located in hard-to-access areas, which puts this project out of the realm of DIY possibility for most homeowners.
Don’t risk compromising your ductwork and creating more problems. Your air ducts are the lungs of your home—give them a little TLC and leave air duct sealing to the pros.
MB Heating & Cooling has the right materials to create lasting seals. Our licensed experts know precisely when and where they should be used. Plus, we are able to use diagnostic measures to seek out and treat duct leaks that otherwise go unnoticed.
Air Duct Cleaning in Illinois
Over time, dust and debris start to collect in your ductwork. Neglected air ducts also tend to harbor mold, mildew—even vermin.
We recommend scheduling an annual inspection of your ductwork to safeguard against these issues. However, don’t wait to have your ducts cleaned if you:
- Notice an unexplained uptick in your utility bills
- Had recent home construction that may have caused dust to gather in your air vents
- Have reason to believe rodents or insects may be nesting in your ducts
- Notice mold or mildew around registers or grilles
