Duct sealing in the home

Summer will be here in no time and we will all be talking about how hot it is outside.

But for now, keeping warm is the main focus as we are in the middle of a very cold winter.

Many people live without heat in their homes and it is not a fun thing to do, especially when the temps dip below freezing like we are having right now. Power rates have gone up a lot so having an efficient unit is key to saving money. Today we will talk about ducts and the process of getting them installed. Ductwork installation is an important aspect of a home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. It involves installing a network of ducts to distribute conditioned air throughout the home. Proper ductwork installation is crucial to ensure efficient and effective heating and cooling. To begin the installation process, the HVAC contractor will measure the size of the space and determine the necessary ductwork size. They will also choose the appropriate materials, such as sheet metal or flexible ducts, based on the specific needs of the home. Next, the contractor will install the main duct that runs between the furnace and the air distribution system. This main duct is connected to smaller branch ducts that run to each room in the home. The branch ducts are then connected to vents or registers in each room to distribute the conditioned air. Proper sealing and insulation of the ductwork is also essential to prevent air leaks and improve energy efficiency. The contractor will use mastic sealant and insulation wrap to ensure proper sealing and insulation of the ducts. Finally, the contractor will test the ductwork system to ensure it is functioning properly and providing the desired level of heating and cooling.
