How to know when your air ducts need to be sealed

My brother is an air conditioning technician and is always trying to give us educational webinars to make sure that our HVACs are well maintained.

  • I greatly take the advice because I truly don’t know the first thing about air conditioning, so I trust his advice.

He’s been talking to us about keeping our air ducts maintained lately. My uncle mentioned that he thought his air ducts needed to be sealed, but apparently his heating ducts just had a connection issue. It’s common to mistake needing to seal air ducts when there is something going on with the connection instead. The most typical way to know if your air ducts need to be sealed is if you are experiencing a leak. My brother said we should feel for leaks with the air conditioning running, and then turn it completely off and check again. He put us on a video call so that he could give us a visual demonstration of how to check air ducts for leaks which was super helpful. I told him that he should start doing workshops or even online videos of common air conditioning and heating issues because he is really passionate about it and honestly great at explaining it. I am a true advocate for people pursuing their passions for teaching other people if they are gifted enough to hold that energy. Not everyone is a natural born teacher, so I always admire when it comes naturally to people. I wish I was a natural born teacher, but I honestly hate talking in front of people because I’m so shy.
