Do Your Air Ducts Need Sealing?

Has your air conditioning system been performing well this summer? Hopefully the answer to that is yes, as we are at the tail end of summer. Scheduling preventive maintenance is one of the most important steps you can take toward ensuring that your cooling system does in fact function as it should.

Maintenance is not the only factor that affects your AC system, however. To make sure that your air conditioner is up to the job you give to it each summer, duct sealing services are something to invest in. Keep reading to learn more about duct sealing and what the benefits are.

Duct Sealing Services

Duct sealing is when our technicians apply professional-grade mastic tape onto the breaches and cracks in your ductwork. This mastic is comprised of an epoxy used to seal leaks once dry. It’s pliable enough to deal with temperature fluctuations without cracking, yet strong enough to effectively do its job.

One of the most common misconceptions homeowners have about store-bought duct tape is that it is efficient enough to seal HVAC air ducts. This is unfortunately not the case, and this type of duct tape should never be used for a job of this caliber. Regulation duct tape is something that our professionals have access to, however this type of tape has a layer of metallic material that’s used to help seal leaks more effectively.

Do I Need This Service?

Many homeowners don’t realize just how susceptible their air ducts are to leaks. Whether they were installed incorrectly to begin with, or sustained damage due to faulty repairs, there are a number of reasons for breaches. Individual ductwork leaks are typically small, but that adds up and can make a small problem much worse.
