Have a Pro Make Sure Your Ducts are Sealed Properly

September 22, 2015 | Blog

Done correctly, duct sealing is one of the most affordable ways to lower the cost of staying comfortable in the Coastal Bend’s hot summers. Because the optimal sealing method for each system depends on several factors, sealing duct leaks is a job best left to a pro.

Tight Ducts Mean Greater Comfort

Insufficiently sealed duct joints leak air into your attic. That means less of the air your system provides reaches your living spaces, making it harder to keep your home a comfortable temperature. Severe leakage can leave entire rooms too hot or cold. Adjust your thermostat to compensate and you’ll end up wasting more energy.

Sealing your ducts minimizes air loss so most of the air from your system reaches you. You’ll need less air conditioning or heating to stay comfortable, meaning you’ll use less energy and see lower bills.

Duct leaks pull in air contaminants, such as dust, mold spores and insulation fibers, from spaces they pass through. This can cause odors and threaten your health. Sealing the leaks stops the contamination so you can enjoy better air quality.

A Pro Can Maximize Your Ductwork Efficiency

In the average home, the ducts leak up to 30 percent of their air. A professional duct sealing job can reduce the leakage down to 5 percent. Achieving such a low leakage rate requires properly connecting the duct joints, choosing the right sealing method for each type of duct, and applying sealing products correctly.

Any errors mean your ducts won’t reach optimal efficiency, despite the time and money you spent sealing them. Technicians know how to choose and properly apply the ideal sealing products to sheet metal, fiberglass, and flexduct. Technicians also know when repair or replacement is the best option for dealing with any damaged ducts. As a result, you’ll get the greatest improvement for your investment.
