Slide 1: The Optimum Ways to Seal Duct Work in your Greensboro NC Home to Save money on Your Electric Bills Ductwork in a house leak on account of the methods they are built. Because of the short lengths of their construction, there certainly is potential for a good number of leaks with the whole cooling and heating system. Air can leak both in and out of the system, allowing the HVAC unit to work harder than it would need to, wasting hard-earned money monthly in power bills. If a person has rooms that happen to be warmer or cooler than the rest, it's a good signal that one has leaky duct work. New houses are definitely not necessarily free from the problems of wrongly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Greensboro NC wants to offer you this post to its present customers and to the home owners of Greensboro NC. Much of the time, about 30 % of a home's heated or cooled air leaks away from the duct work. Consequently, effectively sealing these leaks can save a great deal of money month-to-month. Also, with such leaks efficiently closed, this will reduce dust and dirt that enters the air, enhancing the general air quality of the house too. It is an easy fix for these leaks, but may take some time, for the typical household has close to 180 ft of duct work. In the big picture, if everyone in the America was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in electric costs will probably be saved a year. It is unquestionably an excellent solution to increase the results of burning fossil fuels to generate electric energy and the side effects on the environment. The majority of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this is probably the least beneficial material to work with. Mastic tape is actually a much better alternative option to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and dries as a rubbery elastic substance. It can expand and contract when the duct work expands and contracts with temperature variations. It works on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes prepared in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be put on with a brush, caulking gun, trowel or even by hand (though one will want to wear a glove). One gallon can seal about 20 to 40 joints. The least complicated type is the water based with regards to clean up, though it does comes in ail based forms also. When it comes to putting on mastic, ensure the location is clean of any dust and dirt. One can use a dry rag to dust it off. Make sure there aren't any missing screws and the present ones are screwed in snugly and that any parts of duct work not connecting together are closed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Apply the mastic at the very least one inch across the region in a thick coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If there're gaps larger than one quarter inch, use a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the gap to start with. The mastic takes between 2 to 4 hours to dry. After doing that, wrap the duct work with a good fiberglass insulation. Don't assume that the insulation that one presently has on the duct work will be the right amount to seal the air loss. If there exists dirt streaks on the surface of the duct work, you will discover a duct leak present. Simply take off the insulation and seal the gaps as described above. Heating and Air Greensboro NC is available in order to aid with any queries you might have utilizing this process. Heating and Air Greensboro NC
