What Is Duct Sealing?


Get the scoop on professional duct sealing and find out how it can improve your HVAC energy efficiency.

What is duct sealing? No, we aren’t talking about the type of duct sealing that involves duct tape! Professional duct sealing involves using professional grade materials—typically a special adhesive called mastic—to create a seal that lasts long-term. Sealing the holes and tiny cracks in your ductwork will ensure you aren’t paying hard-earned money to send your cooled air into the great outdoors this spring and summer.

When you choose to get professional duct sealing, you can be sure your ductwork will be tight and secure, so all the cool air goes into your home where you need it most.

What to Expect from Traditional Duct Sealing

Whether duct sealing takes place during a routine preventative maintenance visit or you call for this specific service, the process typically goes something like this:

  • A trained technician assesses your ductwork for cracks and holes and identifies the areas that need sealing.
  • The tech brushes on the mastic where necessary and places a fiberglass tape or special foil to provide reinforcement for the seal.
  • Once dry, the holes and cracks will have a secure seal to keep cooled air in and debris out of your ductwork.

Libby and I just want to express our satisfaction in the heating and A/C products recommended by Jimmy Wilson, as well as his staff, for our home. The Bryant SEER Evolution system heat pump for the house and in particular the Daikin mini-split heat pump used in our sunroom and office are a great addition to our home. ... Since installation of the new unit, our electrical power bills have gone down significantly. The house is approximately 2,500 sq ft and looking back on the utility bills for the last 4 years since the installation we have saved over $1,750 a year compared to the old unit... The staff of this company are always very courteous and prompt in meeting all needs we have had over the years of their existence in the business.
