Our technicians often work on air ducts that are not properly sealed. The main issues that cause leaking are:
Ductwork that is separated at the joints
The main artery from the furnace with broken or rusted‐out seams
Improperly sealed access openings
There are three main methods used to seal the leaks in the air ducts:
Fastener – Typically, the technician will use screws, clamps, locks or straps to mechanically connect two objects together. For example, we will close up our service opening by fastening a cover to your existing duct work.
Coating – A service treatment designed to repair surface defect or modify the surface characteristics. For example, if the inside of your duct has been damaged we may repair using a coating.
Filler – Typically, the technician will use a glue-based substance sealing the duct from the inside.
If your ducts are not sealed properly, air will leak out causing higher energy bills and a decrease in air flow. Please call us to schedule your air duct sealing project today!
