Posted on January 17, 2022 by Jim Neely

In case you've got a heating or cooling systems that uses air ducts, you could have a problem.

There are many duct systems that are poorly designed and installed that have the ability to bring pollutants into your residence.

Some are ducts are located in wet or damp crawl spaces and basements.

Having ducts that aren't properly sealed or insulated in these locations can draw moisture, mold, bacteria and even carbon monoxide into the building.

Unsealed ducts have the same effect as opening a hatch to these ares, the only distinction is that you don't see it and the fan from the heating or cooling appliance will induce more of the pollutants to the living room at a much greater rate.

Ducts located in attics can bring in cold dry air in winter, and warm, humid air in summer, dust, dirt and fibers in the fiberglass insulation that's there to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

It does not have to be this way.

Hiring the ideal professional who utilizes duct diagnostic tools and great industry practices will set you on the path to good indoor air quality and a more comfortable atmosphere.
