Duct Sealing Services in Orem
There are a thousand ways households can leak energy, which forces your HVAC system to work harder and takes money out of your pocket. Chief among these is a breach in your ducts, which are responsible for allowing warm air from your heater and cool air from your air conditioner to reach the various areas of your home. Duct breaches can go undetected for a long time, since the ducts themselves are hidden from sight in your attics and crawlspaces. There are ways to detect them, however, and once you do, you need to call on a professional service to perform a proper duct sealing.
Skylake Heating & Air offers duct sealing services throughout the Orem, UT, area. We conduct them with pride and with the absolute dedication to correcting the issue the first time every time. We’ll walk you through the process, and then perform the operation the same way we would if we were doing it in one of our own homes. Give us a call today to get the process started!

Why Is It Important?
When ducts spring a leak, it impacts your entire system. Conditioned air from your heater or air conditioner will get pulled out of the ducts or unconditioned air will get pulled it. Either way, it undoes the hard work of your system and forces it to work even harder to get the temperature where you need it to be. That translates to higher monthly energy bills — especially with our winters — and the increased strain will shorten the life of your system as well as leading to an increased risk of repairs. The worst part is that breaches can go on for months or even years before you notice them, pulling energy out of your system and forcing you to pay more for household comfort than you should.
Spotting Signs of a Duct Breach
As we’ve said, a duct breach can be hard to spot, but homeowners have a few tricks they can use to do so. The first is to watch your monthly energy bill carefully and look for any unusual spikes, especially if you haven’t used your system any more often than normal. You might also listen for unusual sounds — whistles, hums or the like — coming from the spot of the breach. The air flow in one or more vents might be lower than expected because of the breach, and in some cases, you may even be able to spot warm or cold spots in the wall next to the breach’s location.
