How Duct Leaks Occur
Though duct leaks are often quite small, they can become a rather large issue if ignored. Duct leaks can come from anywhere, too: mistakes made during installation, external damage, and years of expanding and contracting with normal use. Once they’ve formed, they contribute to a massive amount of energy loss. In fact, it has been estimated that the average forced-air system loses about 30% of its total output to duct leaks.
How Duct Sealing Works
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.
Once your ducts are properly sealed—we use CCWI-181 sealant for lasting results—your air conditioning and heating system will work much more efficiently and effectively, saving you hundreds of dollars on annual energy costs. But be warned, new duct leaks can form over time, so it is important that you have your ducts inspected at least once every year.
