We all appreciate the benefits of heating and air conditioning. It is a simple luxury to be able to control the weather inside no matter the weather outside.
And while you may think of the actual units when talking about an air conditioner or furnace, your heating and cooling system is actually a whole lot more. The ducts in your home are a key part of a well functioning HVAC system. While it may be a tedious chore, it may be time to get your ducts sealed. Here are three good reasons why.

You will be losing heated/cooled air, causing you to waste energy and precious dollars as your unit works harder to perform its job. If this happens, you may need to have your ducts resealed.
