Insulating ductwork is something every homeowner should do. The most significant benefit is reducing energy consumption and prolonging the life of the system. It will also significantly increase the comfort of the home. Insulated ducts will allow the HVAC system to heat or cool rooms more quickly and reduce noise.
Duct sealing and duct insulation go together
Duct Sealing and Insulation – What We Do
- Removing any old insulation and tape that may be on the ducts
- Securing ducts with screws and sealing all joints with mastic. Mastic is a flexible sealant that contracts and expands with your ducts and will never come off, unlike tape
- Replacing any duct lines or joints that are too damaged to be sealed with mastic or other traditional methods
- Finally, Installers will spiral wrap the ducts, to building code, with R-11 insulation. They will then spiral nylon string/fiber tape around the insulation to permanently hold it in place
