Slide 1: The Most Suitable Techniques to Seal Duct Work in your Greensboro NC Home to Save on Your Utility Bills Ductwork of a household leak because of the methods they are engineered. Because of the short sizes of their assembly, there does exist possibility of numerous leaks with the overall heating and cooling system. Air can leak both in and out of the system, causing the HVAC unit to work harder than it would need to, throwing away crucial money every month in electric bills. If an individual has rooms which have been warmer or cooler compared to the rest, this is usually a good signal that one has leaky duct work. New homes are definitely not necessarily free from the problems of incorrectly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Greensboro NC desires to provide these details to its current customers and to the individuals of Greensboro NC. Generally speaking, about 30 % of a property's heated or cooled air leaks out of your duct work. This means that, effectively sealing these leaks conserves quite a bit of money month-to-month. Furthermore, with these leaks adequately sealed, its going to reduce dust and dirt that is put in the air, raising the complete air quality of the property too. It is a simple solution for these leaks, but usually requires a little time, for the ordinary house has approximately 180 feet of duct work. In the big picture, if everyone in the U . S . was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in electricity costs would be retained per year. It is really an excellent solution to reduce the effects of burning fossil fuels to generate electric energy and the unwanted side effects on our environment. A lot of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this might be the least successful material to utilise. Mastic tape is definitely a superior alternative option to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and cures as a rubbery stretchy substance. It can expand and contract as the duct work expands and contracts with temperature range changes. It can be used on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes prepared in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be used with a brush, caulking gun, trowel or perhaps by hand (though one will want to wear a glove). One gallon can seal about 20 to 40 joints. The least difficult type is the water based when it comes to clean up, while it does also comes in ail based forms also. In regards 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 securely and that any parts of duct work not fitted together are sealed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Apply the mastic not less than one inch around the break in a heavy 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 initially. The mastic takes between 2 to 4 hours to dry. Afterward, wrap the duct work with a effective fiberglass insulation. Don't assume that the insulation that an individual presently has on the duct work will be the right amount to seal the air loss. If there's soil streaks on the surface of the duct work, you will discover a duct leak present. Simply remove the insulation and seal the gaps as detailed above. Heating and Air Greensboro NC is available to support with inquiries you might have with this procedure. Heating and Air Greensboro NC
