What Is Duct Sealing?
Duct sealing is the process of finding and closing any leaks that may be present in the ducts. The ducts are typically tested first, by sealing them off and pressurizing them. Once the duct testing reveals leaks in the ductwork, they are sealed with a substance called "mastic." Mastic is a viscous substance that is painted into the leaks and, once dry, completely seals them. Though the mastic is stiff enough to seal the leak, it is flexible enough to move with the ducts. This makes it ideal for duct sealing.
Why You Need Duct Sealing
Though duct leaks are often quite small, they are numerous and form very easily. Duct leaks can come from anywhere: mistakes made during installation, external damage, or even years of expanding and contracting with normal use. Once they form, they contribute to a massive amount of energy loss. The US Department of Energy estimates that the average forced air system loses about 30% of its total output to duct leaks. That is nearly a third of your total system output, which you are still paying for, going to waste. Duct leaks, though they are small and often go unnoticed, end up costing you hundreds of dollars a year.
By sealing your ducts, you are restoring them to the efficiency level that they were always meant to have. Properly sealed ducts will make your air conditioning and heating systems much more efficient, saving you money and making your home more comfortable. New duct leaks can form over time, however. So, it is important to have your ducts checked and sealed at least once every year.
