Dealing with Hot & Cold Rooms? Duct Sealing Could Be Your Fix


Dealing with hot and cold rooms? Energy services can advise if duct sealing might be the right fix.

Could you use energy services for heating and cooling in your home? Dealing with hot and cold rooms in your home is not only annoying – it is a sure sign that something is not right with your HVAC system. A full inspection could determine if perhaps duct sealing might be the answer.

Temperature Imbalances

The official name for hot and cold spots is temperature imbalances. Sometimes, the homeowner can easily remedy these issues by moving a rug or curtain away or opening a closed air register. More often, solving these problems requires an energy services technician.

Balanced Air Flow is Key

Your HVAC system works to provide balanced airflow throughout the living spaces. Hot or cold spots means that there is an imbalance in that airflow. If the reason for the imbalance is not readily visible, it could require a professional inspection.

Leaky Ducts

According to the EPA, you can lose 20%-30% of conditioned air (both hot and cold) due to leaky ductwork. That is a lot of money wasted. But you cannot fix this with duct tape!

An HVAC technician can inspect your ductwork, identify potential problems, and recommend repairs. Many issues can cause leaks. These potential issues can include ill-fitting joints, disconnected pieces, and damaged or blocked ducts.

Professional Duct Sealing

Professional duct sealing products work from the inside to seal all the leaks and crevices in your home’s ducting system. It is cost-efficient and extremely effective. The results include lower energy bills and more consistent temperatures throughout the house. Additionally, when the HVAC system is functioning the way it should, it doesn’t have to work as hard, which may add years to its life.
