Duct Sealing - Heat Relief Heating & Cooling Skip to content

Duct Sealing

Duct SealingIn houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. According to Energy Star, in a typical house about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping your home comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

Properly sealing and insulating air ducts located in unconditioned spaces such as attics, crawl spaces, garages or unfinished basements can improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your utility bills.

How we can help you:

  • We’ll inspect your whole duct system, including the attic, crawlspace, garage and basement, as needed.
  • Evaluate your system’s supply and return air balance. Often systems have air return ducts that are too small.
  • Repair damaged and disconnected ducts and straighten out flexible ducts that are tangled or crushed.
  • Seal all leaks and connections with mastic paste and metal tape.
  • Seal all registers and grills tightly to the ducts.
  • Insulate ducts in unconditioned areas with duct insulation that carries an R-value of 8 or higher.
  • Include a new filter as part of any duct system improvement.
  • Evaluate air flow after repairs are completed.
  • Ensure there is no backdrafting or gas or oil-burning appliances, and conduct a combustion safety test after ducts are sealed.

Properly sealed and insulated ducts make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer.
