Duct Sealing

By | HVAC, Indoor Air Quality | No Comments

Does your home have hot or cold spots?

Excessive dust?

High utility bills?

Does your building fail specifications for duct tightness?


These are signs of an air leak in your HVAC duct work. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) says that 75% of all ducts in commercial buildings leak 10-25%. That’s 200-700% higher than ASHRAE’s recommended standard of 3%. Leaks in the return duct spread contaminants throughout the rest of your home or your facility. Leaks in a facility’s ventilation shaft reduces the efficiency of exhaust fans.

Duct Sealing improves indoor air quality from the inside out, repairing leaks with a non-toxic sealant.

Benefits:

  1. Saves energy.
  2. Improves comfort and ventilation.
  3. Helps businesses comply with building codes.
