Duct SealingAccording to the EPA, the typical home loses about 20 percent of the conditioned air that moves through its ducts because of leaks, holes and disconnections in the ductwork. This can lead to some major comfort and efficiency problems in your home. So what’s the best thing a St. Louis Metro East area homeowner can do to prevent these ductwork problems? Have duct sealing performed by Tiger Services!

What is duct sealing?

Duct sealing is a service offered by Tiger during which we inspect your home’s ducts and seal off any openings or disconnections that we find. Our customers experience a number of different benefits from duct sealing, a few of which we listed below.

What are the benefits of duct sealing?

  • Lower energy bills. Any time that you’re losing conditioned air from your ducts, you’re also wasting energy. That’s because your air conditioner has to work extra hard to make up for that lost air. Sealing your ducts will ease the load on your air conditioner and can significantly lower your energy bills.
  • Better system airflow. In order to keep your air conditioner running smoothly, it must have the right amount of airflow. Openings in your ductwork allow air to leak out, which makes your air handler and other system components work extra hard to meet your home’s airflow demands. By sealing your ducts, you can prevent system breakdowns that stem from airflow problems and extend the life of your cooling system.
  • Improved home comfort. When air is lost through duct leaks, it makes it hard for your cooling system to deliver conditioned air where it’s supposed to go. As a result, your home can experience hot and cold spots as well as rooms that you just can’t seem to keep cool. Duct sealing will allow for a much more comfortable home with more consistent temperature levels.
  • Better air quality. Openings in your ducts don’t just allow air out; they also let outside air in. That means that dust and unfiltered air can get into your ductwork and circulate throughout your home, often while bypassing your air filter. Sealing your ducts will ensure that unfiltered air doesn’t infiltrate your ducts and that all of the air that’s delivered to your home has been sent through your air filtration system.

If you have any questions about duct sealing, or if you’d like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Tiger, your St. Louis Metro East plumbing, heating and air conditioning company.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
