Make Sure Your Ac Or Heating System Is Working Great With A Ductwork Checkup!

Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home. If they’re poorly sealed or insulated, chances are they’re contributing to higher energy bills.

Not to fear. Comfort First (with locations in both Raleigh and Outer Banks, NC) has a solution that’ll make your home and wallet more comfortable, regardless of the season.


Your home’s duct system is made up of a network of tubes found within your walls, floors, and ceilings. This network carries air from your home’s furnace and central air conditioners to each room.

If your duct leaks air along the way, then you could be spending hundreds of dollars a year in heating and cooling costs. Luckily there is an easy to way to stop the leaks: by sealing and insulating your ducts.

Insulating your ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually pretty cost-effective. But before you commit to this kind of project, we strongly recommend you have your ductwork checked first.


Being a relatively complex network of tubes, it can be difficult to determine where, exactly, your leak is. And, truth be told, the cause of your leakage might not be poor insulation or sealing. It could be an uncleaned duct, an improperly installed ductwork system, or even the wrong size for your home’s needs.

Our field technicians have the expertise and tools to determine the exact reason why you’re either overpaying in bills or suffering from an underperforming heating or cooling system. We’ll then provide you with a variety of options to remedy your issue. That way you can determine how best to proceed based on your budget, needs, and expectations.


We all tend to live in an out-of-sight out-of-mind world. That’s why it’s so easy to forget about your ductwork! However, there are a number of reasons why you should keep an eye on, and regularly maintain, your ductwork:

  • Over time your ducts can become filled with debris that can choke airflow
  • Ducts can become damaged as houses settle
  • Ducts can and will wear down with age

That’s why we here at Comfort First urge our neighbors throughout Raleigh and Outer Banks to schedule regular duct cleaning. Preventative maintenance can greatly reduce the chances of a major equipment breakdown and inconvenience.

By scheduling regular maintenance with us, we’ll then be able to monitor your ductwork system, clean it, and keep it in tip-top shape so you never have to worry about poor performance or paying more each month because of nasty leaks.

Contact us today to learn more about scheduling a cleaning, or signing up for our cost-savings annual maintenance program.
