Photos of Poorly Sealed Ducts: Air leaking from ducts reduces heating and cooling efficiency by up to 20 percent. Leaky ducts also let dust, moisture, pollen, pests, and noise into your home.

Tightly-sealed and well-insulated ducts keep you more comfortable and increase the energy efficiency of your home. Sealing also helps improve indoor air quality by reducing the risk of dust, moisture, pollen, pests, and noise from entering the ducts and circulating throughout your home.

Below are seven photos and two illustrations of tightly sealed ducts.
