Through advanced duct sealing, holes are effectively sealed throughout ducts and vents from within the ducts. A water-based glue formula is sprayed throughout the duct system, filling in any small holes or cracks that cannot be reached or addressed with traditional, manual duct sealing. Manual duct sealing seals large, easily accessible holes on the outside of the ductwork using mastic tape or by tightening connections.
Duct sealing keeps the warmed or cooled air created by your heating or cooling system within the ducts, allowing for more of that air to be delivered throughout your home. Your system will work less and you will be more comfortable as a result of the evenly distributed air.
With advanced duct sealing, you may see up to 90 percent lower duct leakage and reduce your energy consumption by up to 30 percent.
