Of all the air that circulates in an average home, 25 percent of it passes into the attic through supply duct leakage. This escaped air has already been filtered and treated by your heating or cooling system and you have already been charged for the energy used to do this. So, in effect, 25 percent of your heating or cooling costs are literally money out the window! But that’s just the beginning and it’s a great reason why you should call a professional Coachella Valley HVAC contractor like First Choice A/C & Heating Inc. to help reduce your energy costs.

Air Duct Sealing
In houses with forced-air heating and air conditioning systems, throughout the house. In almost every home in California, around 30% of the air that moves through the air duct systems lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected and insulated air ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping a home or commercial office building comfortable, no matter how good of an air conditioning and heating system it has.
Signs of Poor Air Duct Sealing:
- High summer and winter utility bills;
- Rooms and offices that are difficult to heat and cool;
- Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable;
- Abnormal amounts of dust in your home or office;
- Air conditioning vents are dirty;

Air duct sealing and insulating air conditioning ducts can help with common comfort problems, such as rooms that are too hot in summer time and too cold in the winter time.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Fumes from household and garden chemicals, attic insulation particles, and dust can enter your heating and air conditioning system, aggravating asthma and allergy problems. Sealing air conditioning and heating air ducts can help improve air quality by reducing the risk of pollutants entering the ductwork and circulating through your home or commercial property.
Promote safety during normal operation, gas appliances such as water heaters, clothes dryers, and heating furnaces release gases (like carbon monoxide) through their venting systems. Leaky ductwork in your heating and cooling system may cause “back-drafting,” where these gases are drawn back into the living space, rather than expelled to the outdoors. Sealing duct leaks can reduce the risk.
Leaky air conditioning and heating ducts can reduce heating and cooling system efficiency by as much as 25 percent. Properly sealing and insulating HVAC ducts increase the overall efficiency, lowers your electric bills, and most of the time can pay for itself in energy savings in a short time. Plus, if you’re planning to install new heating and cooling equipment, a well-designed and sealed ductwork system may allow you to downsize to a smaller, less costly heating and air conditioning system that will provide more comfort.
