Repairing your air is the most cost effective and important repair you can make to your home. At Air McCall, we understand that indoor air quality is a growing concern. Most people simply don’t realize how hazardous indoor air can be to their health if the duct system is leaking. We provide air duct repair services in Jacksonville and surrounding areas, helping homeowners take control of their indoor air quality issues.
A study by the U.S. Department of Energy shows that 95% of homes in the U.S. have leaks in the duct system. Approximately 25 – 40% of conditioned air, whether hot or cold, leaks out of the ductwork. The EPA lists indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental risks to public health, causing roughly 8.5 million deaths per year. This is a serious problem, and many people have no idea this problem exists.
Leaky ducts recycle allergins and create humidity issues, which lead to mold problems. The leaks can also cause HVAC system malfunctions and poor performance, which increase energy usage, in turn creating higher energy bills.
Having your HVAC ductwork tested and properly sealed is one of the home improvements with the highest payback ratio. The payback referred to here is financial, but the health benefits are important, as well.
How do you know if your ducts are leaking? Here are a few ways to tell:
- Higher energy bills that can’t be explained to do extra usage
- Uneven cooling or heating
- Inadequate system performance
- Excessive dust indoors
- Visual inspection showing damage or old tape falling off
- Respiratory issues that don’t go away
