Sealed Before Heating Season

Get Your Ducts Sealed Before Heating Season Starts

Monday, September 5th, 2016 at 11:00 am

ng maintenance isn't the only way to get your heating system ready for winter, though. Let's take a look at duct sealing, and why it's necessary to help keep your heating system in good condition.

Why Duct Sealing is Necessary

Your ducts may seem sturdy, but they're actually quite fragile in some ways. Ducts of all kinds are incredibly prone to leaks. Whether from mistakes made during installation, or years of normal use, or even animal activity, small leaks can be opened up in the system. These individual leaks may be small, but they add up quite quickly. The US Department of Energy has estimated that the average forced air system loses up to 30% of its total output due to duct leaks. That's nearly a third of your system's total output going to waste, and which you're still paying for. This makes your home less comfortable, and your system less efficient. If you want your heater to be as efficient as possible, it's a good idea to make sure that your ducts are sealed.

Duct Sealing Methods

Duct sealing is conducted a number of different ways. The most common method involves painting mastic into the leaks. Once the mastic dries, it is stiff enough to keep the leak sealed but flexible enough to move with the ducts. Oftentimes, the mastic will be supplemented with metallic regulation duct tape. This helps stabilize the seal.
