Duct Testing & Sealing
Testing and Sealing
Take a peek at what our service entails
Testing Pre Sealing and Post Sealing Leakage
We use an energy conservatory "duct Blaster & Monometer." The duct Blaster blows air into the ducts and Monometer reads how much air flow is being lost due to duct leakage.
Sealing of the Boot at Register
Sealing the gap from floor/sheet rock to the boot and all seams/connections with in the duct accessible by hand will be sealed. This makes for a more durable system and reduces waste of air. The science behind sealing your duct system is air pressure flows to the points of least resistance. Air will flow to a hole or gap before entering into your home even though the register is a half inch away because the pressure in the attic or crawl space is less than the pressure in your home.
Seal the Supply Plenum
The supply Plenum has the greatest air pressure in your entire System. A pin size hole within 5 ft of the plenum is like have a quarter size hole further away in your duct system. It is very important to make sure the connections at the plenum are sealed. the ducts may not be disconnected but if they are not sealed they will be streaming air out before it even gets into your duct system.
Sealing of the Return
During your service we will seal all returns. Returns bring your conditioned air into your air handler to be cooled or heated. If there are leaks in this area your return could be pulling insulation, allergens, and unconditioned air into your system causing it to work harder. Sealing this will allow your system to work more efficiently to cool or heat the air it is delivering to the duct system.

What is Duct Sealing?
Duct Sealing is the sealing of air leakage. All accessible seams, connections, and accessible high pressure areas with a duct mastic.
How long does this service take ?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.
what material do we use to seal the ducts ?
We use a duct mastic called DP 1030. This material is a UL listed water based synthetic latex, NO CHEMICALS, NO ODOR, hardens within 24-72 hours, crack and peel resistant, and mold and mildew resistant.
What Method do we use to seal the ducts ?
We use what is called the Hand Sealing method. This method allows us to make sure all flex ducts are fastened and sealed correctly at connection points. Also, it ensures all boots and other metal ducts are sealed at the seams. Furthermore, because we have our hands on all accessible points of the system we find all flaws within the system and correct them which is often not the case with chemical systems blown in the ducts.
