Traditional Air Duct Sealing
Why should you consider sealing your duct-work? According to Energy Star, the average home, loses 20-30% of conditioned air due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected duct-work. This means higher energy bills and hot or cold spots throughout the house. Leaky ducts can also contribute to more dust circulating through your home, especially if your duct-work runs through your crawl space, basement, garage or attic.
Even if your ducts are insulated, that does not mean they are sealed. A telling sign of air loss is when you see your duct insulation fill with air every time your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system turns on. The duct sealing process involves going beneath the insulation and finding all joints in the duct-work to seal them and prevent air loss then properly re-insulating them.
Air duct sealing is a great way to help improve the air quality and comfort of your home and improve the efficiency of your heating and air system. Here at Crawl Space Ninja, we offer traditional duct sealing services where we manually seal all the joints accessible on your duct-work system.
At select locations, we also offer Aeroseal Duct Sealing, a new patented process which seals the ducts from the inside, meaning it is much more effective at reducing air loss than traditional duct sealing practices.
If you're considering getting your ducts sealed, it's also important to consider getting them cleaned before starting the process. This will ensure any dust or debris trapped in your ducts are removed and further improve the efficiency of your heating and air system.
