Air Duct Sealing Service: A Comprehensive Guide

Air duct sealing is a process that helps to ensure that your home is as comfortable and efficient as possible. DUCTZ trained professionals can provide you with air duct sealing services, using the patented Aeroseal technology. This method is an effective, affordable, and viable way to seal leaks in commercial building ducts. The system will be pressurized to detect any leaks before the sealant is released.

Aeroseal has a patented process for sealing ducts from the inside by injecting aerosol sealant particles into a pressurized duct system. Thanks to Aeroseal software, technicians can accurately measure leaks in the ducts of commercial buildings and 26% of residential homes. Government studies have found that in many homes, up to 20% of their air conditioning is lost due to gaps in the joints of the ducts and in the air controller. The preliminary air duct diagnostic test will detect the exact amount of leaks in the ducts of the duct system; the typical leak detected in a home ranges from 30 to 40%. In homes with forced air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute air conditioning throughout the house.

As air tries to escape through leaks, particles adhere to the edges of the leak, sealing the duct. To begin with, you should seal any air leaks with putty or metal tape and insulate any accessible ducts (such as those in attics, tight spaces, unfinished basements, and garages). However, in a typical home, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that passes through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. Leaks in poorly sealed air ducts cause the system to work harder, resulting in shorter equipment life and higher energy bills.
