Duct Sealing


duct sealing5Do you have rooms that just don't seem to get warm enough in the winter or cool enough in the summer? It could be from a lack of insulation, or maybe your heating or cooling system just isn't strong enough. But the answer could be as simple as leaky ductwork! More than 20% of American homes have leaky or detached ducts.

Here's how it works... Your heating and cooling systems create hot and cold air and push that air through ducts to all the rooms of your home. Through shoddy workmanship by the builder, settling of the house in the ground, or passage of time that degrades adhesive materials, some segments of ductwork become detached from other segments. As a result, some of the conditioned air doesn't make it to the rooms of your home. You have comfort issues. And you're paying to heat (or cool) your attic, crawl space and wall cavities.

In addition to comfort issues and wasted energy, leaky ducts are a leading cause of poor indoor air quality, as pollutants are drawn into the system, re-circulated and distributed throughout the house through the heating and cooling systems.

We use Duct Blaster® equipment to pinpoint leakages in the HVAC ductwork, and to measure success once the duct sealing is complete. You will be provided with before and after leakage measurements to guarantee success.

Typical duct renovation also includes straightening or replacing ducts, sealing air handlers with proper materials, hanging ducts where necessary, replacing registers to improve proper air throw and installing basic fresh air systems.


Duct Sealing can help increase your comfort, save energy, and improve your home's safety, durability and air quality. But the first step is to schedule an energy assessment to find out exactly what home improvement work is recommended for your home.

We were unaware of what was involved in an energy audit and your audior took the time to explain everything. We were impressed with the report which told us the areas in which we need to take action on. He never pressured us to use any particular contractors, he just suggested that we go to the HomeEnergyTeam web site to select contractors of our own choice. He did an excellent job and we HIGHLY recommend the Home Energy Team. We already have recommended them to several of our neighbors. Again, EXCELLENT JOB!

Your home energy audit proved to be very informative and helpful. I was not aware of the updraft created inside our walls because of the balloon framing construction. You said that that can cause heat to be pulled out of the house with the draft going up inside the walls and should be re-mediated. You also said that the attic insulation was insufficient and that fiberglass batts can leave spaces for around the edges causing heat loss and that it should have blown in insulation on top of what was there to seal the whole attic and increase the r factor. After going over your findings and telling me how you would fix the problems you told me how I could do it myself with stuff from the Home Center and for a quarter of the cost. Well, I did. I went into the basement and filled the bottom of the wall joist with unfaced insulation where they set on the sill plate. I then cut one inch foam board the size for each space and set it in and the sealed the edges of that with expanding foam as well as the sill plate to the foundation. I also sealed the sill plate to the foundation where the joist ran along it, as well as the top of those joist where it made contact with the subflooring. Next I went to the home center and rented their blown insulation machine and got ten bales of the insulation. I filled the attic on top of the batt insulation with about six inches giving another r-19 factor on top of the r-19 that was there. You said that the blown in would also help seal the heat loss around the edges of the batt. The work in the basement cost $144.00 and the work in the attic cost $328.00. After the 30% federal energy tax credit it will end up costing me about $330.00, which you said I should recover in savings in the first year. Thank You for all your advice and expertise. You made me aware of things I should consider and did.
