How Duct Sealing Helps You and Your HVAC System

When a lot of homeowners hear about “duct sealing service,” they may think of a roll of duct tape. While we would never disparage the wide uses of duct tape, we can tell you without hesitation that duct tape is not the material used in professional duct sealing, nor is it effective for duct sealing. Professional duct sealing involves a process and materials that create a long-term, durable seal that provides real benefits for you and your home.

What Duct Sealing Service Entails

When you call Certified Air Systems, Inc. for duct sealing services, your professional will do the following:

  • Inspect your ductwork system for problems – the technician conducts a thorough inspection of your system so that he/she can take an accounting of all the faulty areas.
  • Applies mastic – mastic is a fibrous, paste-like substance that, when hardened, turns into a durable, flexible seal. Your technician will apply mastic to all the faulty parts, including holes, cracks and broken seals, then reinforce those parts with either foil tape or sheet metal nails.
  • Final review – once all the faulty areas have been attended to, your technician will double-check your ductwork to make sure all areas that need sealing have been addressed.

How Does Duct Sealing Help?

When you have faulty ductwork, a few problems develop. First, your home won’t get the volume of air it needs to be comfortable. Your home may also suffer from poor indoor air quality. But it is your HVAC system that has to compensate for this air loss by working harder to achieve the set temperature on your thermostat. If your HVAC system works in a stressed state over a long period of time, excessive wear and tear will set in, making your system more vulnerable to malfunction and breakdown. It may also prematurely age your system.
