Slide 1: The Finest Techniques to Seal Duct Work in your Greensboro NC Home to Save money on Your Electric Power Bills Air ducts of a house leak due to the ways in which they are engineered. Because of the short lengths of their design, there does exist potential for a large number of leaks through the whole heating and cooling system. Air could very well leak both in and out of the system, allowing the HVAC unit to work much harder than it simply needs to, losing hard-earned money every month in electric bills. If an individual has rooms which are warmer or cooler compared to the rest, it is a good signal that a person has leaky duct work. New residences are certainly not necessarily clear of the problems of wrongly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Greensboro NC would like to supply this article to its present customers and to the consumers of Greensboro NC. Generally speaking, about 30 % of a home's heated or cooled air leaks out from the duct work. Due to this fact, adequately sealing these leaks helps save a substantial amount of money month-to-month. Moreover, with such leaks accurately sealed, it's going to cut down on dust and debris that goes into the air, raising the entire air quality of the house too. It is a straightforward solution for these leaks, but normally requires some time, for the traditional residence has in the region of 180 feet of duct work. In the big picture, if everybody in the The United States was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in electric costs will probably be retained every year. It is unquestionably an excellent method to improve the effects of burning fossil fuels to create electric energy and the side effects on our environment. The majority of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this is probably the least productive material to work with. Mastic tape is usually a much better alternative to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and dries as a rubbery flexible substance. It can expand and contract when the duct work expands and contracts with environment shifts. 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 simplest type is the water based when it comes to clean up, though it does comes in ail based forms as well. With regards to applying mastic, be sure the area is clean of any dust and dirt. One can use a dry rag to dust it off. Make sure there are not any missing screws and the present ones are screwed in snugly and that any sections of duct work not fixed together are sealed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Apply the mastic a minimum of one inch around the break in a thick coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If there exist gaps greater than one quarter inch, utilize a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the gap initially. The mastic takes between 2 to 4 hours to dry. After, wrap the duct work with a effective fiberglass insulation. Don't believe that the insulation that an individual currently has on the duct work will be sufficient to seal the air loss. If there's soil streaks on the surface of the duct work, there's a duct leak present. Simply take off the insulation and seal the gaps as described above.
