How to Fix Leaky Ductwork
If your ductwork isn’t properly sealed, it can greatly reduce your energy efficiency and possibly your indoor air quality! That’s because poorly sealed ducts allow air to escape or enter your ductwork—meaning you lose the conditioned air you’re paying for. So how do you go about fixing leaky ductwork? Depending on the cause of your leaky ducts, there are a couple things you can do.

Fixing Your Leaky Ductwork
If your heating or cooling systems don’t seem to be running as efficiently as they should be or if there’s a lack of airflow in your home, it may be time to have an expert inspect your ductwork. They will be able to see if changes or additions should be made to improve the performance of your home duct system. There are two main reasons why leaky ductwork is a serious problem:
Energy efficiency – when your ducts are leaking conditioned air, they’re basically leaking out dollar bills. You’re paying for the energy that’s used to heat or cool the air in your home, and when that air escapes out of leaky ductwork, it never reaches your home to cool or heat the indoor spaces. That also means that it will take longer to cool or heat your home—costing you even more!
Indoor air quality – if there are gaps or holes in your ductwork allowing air to escape, that means there are probably places where air can enter your ducts as well! That can be potentially harmful to you and your family because that means allergens, dirt, mold, or other pollutants could get into your air supply through your ductwork and be distributed throughout your home.
At Arctic Air Conditioning, we can fix your leaky ductwork by designing custom ductwork additions for your home to increase the efficiency of your HVAC systems or altering portions of your existing ductwork that need to be repaired or replaced.
