Duct Cleaning vs. Duct Sealing: A Quick Guide

CES Duct Cleaning

Summer is in full swing here in the Foothills. For many, this means taking the time to ensure that their home is well-equipped to deal with the heat of the summer. Have you considered taking a closer look at your home’s ductwork? There’s a lot of talk about the importance of duct cleaning or duct sealing, but which one is right for your home? What is ductwork, anyway?

The Role of Ductwork

In considering the ductwork in your home, think about the lungs of your own body. They’re what carry air in and out, allowing you to breathe easily as you go about your day. Your ductwork can basically be viewed as the home’s respiratory system, delivering and removing conditioned and unconditioned air to and from the home. When things are working properly, you and your family can expect to be comfortable. Dirty ducts, on the other hand, can carry contaminants like mold and allergens into your home, creating an uncomfortable (and even unsafe) living space.

Getting Your Ducts Cleaned This Summer

The benefits of getting your ducts cleaned are undeniable. Here are just a few reasons to call CES today:

Improved Home Performance

Your home is a system with many interrelated parts, and if one aspect doesn’t function properly, everything else is affected. Improving home performance and home efficiency may not be the easiest task in the world, but getting your ducts cleaned can make a world of difference.

Increased Home Comfort

Our team is dedicated to creating a comfortable home environment for you and your family. Increase home comfort is to be expected whenever your ducts are cleaned, as clean air is allowed to flow freely, without any contamination or obstacles blocking its path.

Better Indoor Air Quality

The quality of the air you breathe is nothing to mess around with. Sadly, many people live in homes where indoor air quality (IAQ) is less than ideal. Since dust, dirt, and mold can build up in your ductwork, having your ducts cleaned is one of the best ways to improve IAQ in your home.

What About Duct Sealing?

While duct cleaning can certainly help to alleviate issues that are associated with dirty ductwork, it doesn’t solve the root cause of the problem. For this, duct sealing is the best route to take. Sealing your ducts takes care of any cracks and gaps in your ductwork that let in contaminants in the first place, meaning the issues won’t build up as frequently.
