Duct Sealing

Duct Sealing in Mesa, AZ

Heating and cooling one's home with a forced air distribution based system can be a very effective and reliable way of doing so. It can also be hugely problematic, though, if the air ducts in that system are not in the best working condition possible. In order to guarantee that you are able to both heat and cool your home with the outstanding results that you expect—and that we believe you deserve—your ductwork must operate flawlessly. 

It is for precisely this reason that we offer professional duct sealing services in Mesa, AZ. Sealing ductwork is not a job for the DIY enthusiast. Your ductwork is not readily accessible, for the most part, and you cannot simply slap some duct tape onto tears and holes in the system in order to resolve your issues. If you want to get the most from your air ducts, schedule your air duct sealing services with the professional technicians on the North Wind Mechanical team.

When Is Duct Sealing Necessary?

The problem that most homeowners have when it comes to issues with their ductwork is that they are simply not sure when there is a problem to begin with. If your air conditioner breaks down entirely, or you smell burning when running your furnace, or even if you see a lot of rust on your water heater, it’s pretty obvious that there is a problem. Your ductwork, though, is largely hidden from view. You cannot simply inspect it.

What you can do, though, is learn the warning signs that duct sealing is necessary. Reduced indoor air quality, a hissing or whistling sound coming from your ductwork, and increased energy costs, along with uneven heating and cooling, are all signs that your ductwork is compromised. If you have such issues in your home, duct sealing may benefit you greatly.

What Does Sealing Ductwork Entail?

We mentioned above that you cannot simply "seal" holes and tears in your air ducts by applying duct tape to them. Duct tape does not last very long before breaking down, and is really not very appropriately named. When you schedule professional duct sealing services, our technicians will test your ductwork, if necessary, in order to ascertain where the problem is.

We will use a mastic sealant in order to guarantee not only that those weak spots are effectively sealed, but that they will stay that way in the long run. This mastic hardens as it dries, and creates a very strong seal on the damaged ductwork.

Benefits of Professional Duct Sealing

The benefits of professional duct sealing in Mesa, AZ are many. You will be able to enjoy not only a more effective performance from your HVAC system, as it is able to more reliably distribute heated and cooled air throughout your home, but also greater energy efficiency. This means that you may actually wind up spending less money for a better heating and cooling experience. Pollutants also won’t be able to easily infiltrate your ductwork and be distributed throughout your home, so you can enjoy improved indoor air quality, as well. Additionally, properly sealed ductwork means less strain on your HVAC system, and reduced risk of repair needs and operational problems.
