Seal Your Ducts, And Plug The Drain On Your Pocketbook - Glasco Heating & Air Conditioning skip to Main Content

Have your energy costs been on the rise? Have you ever stopped to think that your ductwork could be to blame? If your ducts are leaking, you’re not getting the full benefit of the conditioned air for which you’ve paid. What’s more, your family isn’t experiencing the comfort and air quality that they deserve. To improve household comfort and put a plug in the drain on your pocketbook, you may want to consider having your ductwork properly sealed.

Often, leaky ducts can be sealed by the homeowner using duct mastic tape or a similar product. Of course, this is usually only true when duct leaks are fully accessible. If your leakage problems are hidden within walls or between floors, you’re going to need the assistance of a professional.

What does professional duct sealing have to offer Connecticut homeowners?

  • A thorough evaluation of duct configuration and sizing
  • Circulation and pressure testing
  • The repair of disconnected ductwork
  • The proper sealing of leaky ductwork using aerosol-based sealants and mastic tape
  • Insulation of ducts in unconditioned areas such as the basement or attic
  • Carbon monoxide testing
  • A change of air filters

In addition to rising energy costs, leaky ducts will often lead to inconsistent system performance. For example:

  • You may find it hard to maintain consistent temperatures.
  • Humidity may rise, causing moisture problems within the home.
  • You may notice foul odors coming from your heating and cooling system.
  • Dust accumulation may increase.

If you’re currently experiencing any of these issues in your household, it may be time to consider a professional consultation. Whether or not your ductwork is to blame, our trained technicians can help you find the source of the problem and the most appropriate way to correct it.
