Duct Sealing in Durham & Chapel Hill, NC

Chances are that you have not had an opportunity to really look inside of your ducts. While you can possibly see a bit of your ducts where the vents lead out to your home, this is only a tiny portion of the ductwork that extends through your attic or crawlspace. Over time, this extensive duct system is bound to run into some sort of trouble. Commonly, ductwork develops holes and cracks that can escalate into a significant loss of the air.

In fact, most homes have some level of duct leakage that could benefit from professional duct sealing. It is always a good idea to have a professional technician inspect your air conditioning and heating ducts today to discover whether or not you could benefit from duct sealing.

Sealing your ducts can reduce your monthly bills, improve your comfort, and reduce strain on your air conditioning system and heater to extend the lifespan of the system.


Leaky air ducts are not exactly easy to spot since they are hidden from view of your home. Although you may not be able to see leaks, you might feel them. Some rooms of your home may cool down or heat up quickly, while others take a very long time to get to a comfortable temperature. You may notice that your AC and heating system has to run for a long time with each cycle and that your energy bills reflect this. It’s a good idea to have a technician take a look in your ducts if you notice these types of issues to find out whether you could benefit from duct sealing.


When your ducts need sealing, you can’t let just anyone complete the work. Several things could go wrong if you allow someone without any experience to complete the job. For one thing, it could be unsafe, and you may risk a fire hazard if you use the wrong sealant. In fact, duct tape is inappropriate for most duct sealing jobs. Professionals have the proper tools to seal ducts tightly and prevent any further damage from occurring. Additionally, improper sealing can lead to further damage, and it can force dust and debris to come loose in the ducts and blow into your home.


If you need professional duct sealing service, we are the company to keep in mind. We can inspect your HVAC system to determine why your AC and heating equipment is so inefficient. If it turns out to be a problem with the air ducts, our air duct sealing service is the solution.
