Putting Duct Sealing to Work for You

How Our Duct Sealing Can Improve Your HVAC Efficiency

Anyone involved with the heating and air conditioning industry will tell you that leaking ducts can have an enormous impact on the operation of your home comfort system. The unit has to work much harder to accomplish the same goal, resulting in greater wear and tear on your system. When you are looking for a way to be rid of this problem, the duct sealing services we use offer a remarkable solution. This fast and effective product can quickly improve the efficiency of your system – and therefore increase its lifespan and reduce your monthly operating costs.

What Is Duct Sealing?

The sealing product we use is an atomized polymer that is blown through the ductwork of your property. It was specifically designed to have the polymers easily bind together at misalignments, holes, and leaks to provide an airtight seal. It is important to note that this product does not coat the entirety of the ductwork – it only seals where it is needed.

Why Do I Need to Seal My Ducts?

Energy waste and wear on the system is reason enough, but there are several other problems that could crop up if poorly sealed ductwork goes unchecked. The leaks could cause an imbalance in the design of your system, resulting in inconsistent temperatures throughout the home. The accumulation of dust, excessive humidity, and musty, unpleasant smells are all possibilities as well.

Rather than putting up with all that, you could get your ducts sealed and enjoy numerous benefits, such as:

  • Improved HVAC system performance
  • Improved airflow
  • Cleaner, fresher air
  • Increased comfort
  • Reduced energy consumption

Getting Duct Sealing Services in Your Home or Business

This sealant is just about as safe as they come. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certified it as nontoxic, and it has even been used in medical facilities such as the Mayo Clinic. During the application process, you may notice a mild odor, often described as being similar to Elmer’s glue. If anyone in the home is particularly sensitive to smell, the odor will be gone entirely in a few hours – enough time to run a few errands or catch dinner and a movie.

Our services boast a 10-year warranty, but the sealant has been durability-tested for over 40 years. If you are interested in finding out if this product may be right for you, call Pyramid Heating & Cooling at (503) 783-8488 today!
