Slide 1: The Very Best Ways to Seal Duct Work in your Greensboro NC Home to Reduce Your Utility Bills Ductwork of a household leak because of the ways that they're built. Because of the short distances of their design, there does exist probability of a lot of leaks in the entire heating and air conditioning system. Air may easily leak both in and out of the system, allowing the HVAC unit to operate much harder than it has to, wasting valuable money each month in electric bills. If one has rooms that happens to be warmer or cooler compared to the rest, it's actually a good sign that one has leaky duct work. New family homes are usually not necessarily clear of the inconveniences of mistakenly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Greensboro NC wishes to deliver these details to its existing customers and to the home owners of Greensboro NC. Commonly, about 30 percent of a house's heated or cooled air leaks out of your duct work. Which means that, accurately sealing these leaks helps save a large amount of money month-to-month. Moreover, with these leaks sufficiently sealed, it will cut down on dust and dirt that enters the air, improving the complete air quality of your home too. It is a straightforward fix for these leaks, but usually requires some time, for the common house has approximately 180 ft of duct work. In the big picture, if everyone in the United States was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in electrical energy costs could well be saved every year. It happens to be an excellent option to reduce the negative effects of burning fossil fuels to create electricity and the adverse reactions on the environment. The majority of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this might be the least beneficial material to use. Mastic tape is actually a more effective alternative to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and cures as a rubbery elastic substance. It can expand and contract while the duct work expands and contracts with temperature changes. It works on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes manufactured in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be used 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 least difficult type is the water based with regards to clean up, while it does comes in ail based forms also. When it comes to putting on 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 securely and that any sections of duct work not connecting together are sealed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Put on the mastic approximately one inch all around the crack in a thick coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If one can find gaps greater than one quarter inch, use a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the space initially. The mastic takes between Two to four hours to dry. Afterwards, wrap the duct work with a good fiberglass insulation. Don't think that the insulation that a person currently has on the duct work will be more than enough 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 take off the insulation and seal the gaps as shown above. Heating and Air Greensboro NC is available to assist with any questions you might have using this strategy. Heating and Air Greensboro NC
