Slide 1: The Top Methods to Seal Duct Work in your Fayetteville NC Home to Reduce Your Household Utility Bills Air ducts of any household leak because of the ways that they're fabricated. Because of the short sizes of their fabrication, there is likelihood of a lot of leaks through the whole heating and air conditioning system. Air could certainly leak both in and out of the system, causing the HVAC unit to operate harder than it simply needs to, throwing away hard-earned money month after month in power bills. If one has rooms that happens to be warmer or cooler as opposed to the rest, it can be a good hint that one has leaky duct work. New homes typically are not necessarily clear of the troubles of mistakenly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Fayetteville NC would like to provide this post to its existing customers and to the home owners of Fayetteville NC. Typically, about 30 % of a property's heated or cooled air leaks out of your duct work. Which means that, effectively sealing these leaks can save substantial money month-to-month. Plus, with such leaks effectively closed, it will cut down on dust and debris that goes into the air, boosting the general air quality of the home too. It is a simple solution for these leaks, but usually requires some time, for the usual property has as much as 180 ft of duct work. In the big picture, if everybody in the U . S . was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in energy costs will likely be saved every year. It happens to be an excellent option to boost the negative effects of burning fossil fuels to produce electric power and the adverse effects on the environment. Most duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this might be the least efficient material to employ. Mastic tape is actually a more desirable approach to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and cures as a rubbery elastic material. It can expand and contract just as the duct work expands and contracts with environment changes. It is appropriate on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes packaged in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be applied with a brush, caulking gun, trowel and even by hand (though one will want to wear a glove). One gallon can seal about 20 to 40 joints. The ideal type is the water based when it comes to clean up, while it does comes in ail based forms also. In terms of applying mastic, be sure that 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 properly and that any parts of duct work not attached together are sealed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Apply the mastic not less than one inch around the crack in a thick coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If there exists gaps larger than one quarter inch, make use of a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the space first. The mastic takes between Two to four hours to dry. Afterward, wrap the duct work with a effective fiberglass insulation. Don't assume that the insulation that a person presently has on the duct work will be good enough to seal the air loss. If there's dirt streaks on the surface of the duct work, you will discover a duct leak present. Simply remove the insulation and seal the gaps as described above. Heating and Air Fayetteville NC is available to support with inquiries you may have using this procedure. Air Conditioning Fayetteville NC
