If you’re dealing with leaky air ducts, Comfort All-Stars offers professional duct sealing in Oldsmar, FL. The ductwork in most homes isn’t fully airtight, which can create many issues for the cooling and heating systems. This is why most experts recommend having air duct sealing performed every few years or any time your ducts show signs of damage or leaks.

It’s always best to have your ductwork system checked for leaks every year at the same time as you have your annual HVAC maintenance performed. When inspecting a duct system, the technician will check for any holes or signs of damage. They’ll also check the condition of the metal foil tape or mastic used to seal where each section of ductwork meets.
Foil tape can theoretically last for around a decade, but it does degrade over time and can start to lose its adhesiveness. When this happens, some pieces of the tape may fall off and lead to large gaps where lots of air can leak out. Mastic will usually last for the life of the ductwork, but it isn’t always that effective for sealing crevices and tight areas. If the ducts move even slightly, mastic can also crack and allow air to leak out.
Leaky air ducts are a major problem as they can lead to your HVAC system wasting lots of energy. In fact, the EPA estimates that air leaks can decrease the energy efficiency of an HVAC system by up to 20%. This shows why having your ductwork inspected is so important since even small leaks could greatly increase your cooling and heating costs.
Another issue is that gaps can also allow lots of dust and allergens to get inside the ducts. This can lead to the air quality in your home worsening since your HVAC system will then circulate the allergens throughout the house.
These are just some of the benefits you’ll get by having professional duct sealing performed.
Improved energy efficiency
More effective heating and cooling
Increased home comfort
Better indoor air quality
Decreased wear and tear on your HVAC system
The Aeroseal procedure is by far the most effective option for duct sealing. It can seal inaccessible ducts hidden behind walls and inside ceilings. The process works by injecting a special aerosol sealant into the ducts. The air flowing through the ducts carries the sealant particles. When the air leaks out through a gap or crack, the sealant particles will adhere to the edges of the gap and fully seal the hole.
