Air Conditioning Comfort for Life

United for your comfort since 1987

Do you want an energy efficient home?

Have you sealed your air ducts to lower your utility costs?

Did you use duct tape to seal them?

Duct Tape Myth #2 – Sealing Air Ducts With Duct Tape is an Effective Fix!
Second installment from Nine Air Conditioning Myths Dismissed.

Finding leaks in your ductwork can be frustrating. We all know that airtight ductwork is crucial to maintaining low utility costs.

Often, people think that using duct tape to seal leaks is an effective fix.

While in the short term this may appear like a quick and easy solution, it is not an appropriate fix for the long term.

Time finally takes it toll!

Over time, duct tape dries out and cracks, and leaks reappear. This reduces energy efficiency and ultimately increases energy costs.

Also, there is a potential for toxic fumes to be drawn into the duct system when the seal is not done properly.

Have an HVAC contractor check your ducts.

Make sure they are correctly sealed, and the contractor uses the right mastic and mesh tape for the repair. Also, have any loose joints leaks in your system fixed.
