Job completed for Sealing HVAC Component in Versailles, KY

Completion date: November 30, -0001

Location: Versailles, KY

About this project:

The before photo shows what we typically see in existing homes...an unsealed HVAC component (indicated by the yellow arrows). This problem this situation creates is conditioned air (heated or cooled air) is allowed to escape into the attic. This is fine if you want to heat and cool your attic during cold or hot months, but who wants to do that? This situation also creates a need for your HVAC system to run more frequently than it should in order to keep our home at your desired temperature.

Since conditioned air should be kept in your living space, the second photo shows how we solved the problem of air leakage into an unconditioned space. We sealed around the HVAC component effectively blocking the pathway air was using to escape into the attic (indicated by the green arrows). Doing this allows the conditioned air to reach its destination which could be a children's bedroom, a home office or even a family room keeping that location at the desired temperature.
