Slide 1: The Very Best Approaches to Seal Duct Work in your Greensboro NC Home to Reduce Your Utility Bills Air ducts of any house leak mainly because of the ways in which they're manufactured. Because of the short distances of their design, there's definitely potential for a good number of leaks in the over-all cooling and heating system. Air may leak both in and out of the system, causing the HVAC unit to operate much harder than it has to, squandering hard-earned money every month in electric bills. If a person has rooms that are warmer or cooler compared to the rest, it's a good hint that a person has leaky duct work. New houses aren't necessarily lacking in the inconveniences of wrongly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Greensboro NC desires to offer this post to its existing customers and to the citizens of Greensboro NC. Most frequently, about Thirty percent of a home's heated or cooled air leaks out of your duct work. Consequently, correctly sealing these leaks will save a great deal of money month-to-month. In addition, with these leaks successfully sealed, this will cut down on dust and debris that is put in the air, raising the entire air quality of the house too. It is a simple fix for these leaks, but usually requires a little time, for the traditional house has as much as 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 electrical energy costs would definitely be saved yearly. It is undoubtedly an excellent method to reduce the results of burning fossil fuels to generate electricity and the unwanted effects on the environment. A large amount of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this might be the least beneficial material to employ. Mastic tape is definitely a a lot better option to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and dries as a rubbery elastic material. It can expand and contract while the duct work expands and contracts with temperature shifts. It can be used on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes packaged in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be put on 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 variety is the water based in terms of clean up, while it does comes in ail based forms as well. When it comes to putting on mastic, ensure 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 sections of duct work not fixed together are closed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Apply the mastic at the minimum one inch across the crack in a heavy coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If there are gaps larger than one quarter inch, utilize a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the space first. The mastic takes between Two to four hours to dry. Next, wrap the duct work with a good fiberglass insulation. Don't think that the insulation that an individual currently has on the duct work will be enough to seal the air loss. If there is 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 shown above. Heating and Air Greensboro NC is available in order to aid with any questions you may have using this process. Heating and Air Greensboro NC
