Slide 1: The Perfect Methods to Seal Duct Work in your Fayetteville NC Home to Save money on Your Household Utility Bills Ductwork in a house leak due to ways in which they're manufactured. Because of the short sizes of their assembly, there is risk of a wide range of leaks in the entire 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, squandering valuable money each month in energy bills. If an individual has rooms which happen to be warmer or cooler than the rest, it's a good indication that one has leaky duct work. New properties aren't going to be necessarily totally free from the issues of wrongly sealed duct work. Heating and Air Fayetteville NC wants to give these details to its existing customers and to the residents of Fayetteville NC. In most cases, about 30 percent of a home's heated or cooled air leaks away from the duct work. Consequently, properly sealing these leaks can save a substantial amount of money month-to-month. In addition, with these leaks sufficiently sealed, it will reduce dust and debris that enters the air, raising the overall air quality of the house too. It is an easy solution for these leaks, but usually requires a little time, for the normal household has roughly 180 ft of duct work. In the big picture, if everybody in the America was to seal their leaking duct work, more than $5 billion in electric costs will likely be retained each year. It is definitely an excellent option to increase the effects of burning fossil fuels to create electric energy and the problematic side effects on our environment. A great deal of duct work is sealed with duct tape, but this might be the least impressive material to implement. Mastic tape is usually a measurably better alternative to use to seal cracks and leaks. Mastic tape is waterproof, flexible and dries as a rubbery stretchy material. It can expand and contract when the duct work expands and contracts with temperature shifts. It is fine on metal, fiberglass and flexible duct work. It comes distributed in caulking tubes, tubs and large buckets. It can be put on with a brush, caulking gun, trowel or alternatively by hand (though one will want to wear a glove). One gallon can seal about 20 to 40 joints. The simplest variety is the water based in terms of clean up, while it does also comes in ail based forms as well. In regards to applying mastic, be sure that 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 fixed together are closed. Gaps of up to a quarter inch can be sealed well. Put on the mastic at least one inch around the crack in a heavy coat, around 1/16 of an inch thick. If there exists gaps larger than one quarter inch, utilize a fiberglass mesh tape to cover the space first. The mastic takes between 2 to 4 hours to dry. Afterwards, wrap the duct work with a good fiberglass insulation. Don't assume that the insulation that a person presently has on the duct work will be enough 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. Heating and Air Fayetteville NC is available to help with any queries you have with this process. Air Conditioning Fayetteville NC
