Seal Your Ducts for Improved Home Energy-Efficiency

The U.S. Department of Energy reports that at least 75 percent of American homes have leaky ductwork. Imagine the implication of this in terms of energy loss. Make sure that your air cooling and heating system is operating efficiently. Contact FOR Energy for your duct sealing needs now.

The Importance of Sealing Your Ducts

Ducts refer to the air passages in your home for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). A system of ducts is called ductwork. When there is a leak or other problems in your ductwork, energy loss can be as much as 20 to 40 percent, leading to high electricity bills. In order to address this, it is important to seal your ducts. When you undergo this process of duct sealing, you can improve the energy efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system. Just contact us at

There are various benefits to duct sealing, aside from lower electricity bills. These include the following:
Clean air

When you undergo duct sealing, you can improve the air quality inside your home. This is because leaky ducts can carry pollutants from outside such as vehicle and industrial fumes, including pathogens and allergens that can put your family’s health at risk. Leaky ducts can also bring in combustion gases which are flammable and may also put you at risk. By sealing your ducts, you can minimize threats to your health and safety and enable you to enjoy clean air.

A More Comfortable Home

With duct sealing, you get to enjoy maximum comfort in your home. This is because the temperature remains constant, eliminating the possibility of hot or cold areas in your home. When you have a more comfortable home, you can devote more time for the family and enjoy more bonding moments.

Contribute to a Cleaner Environment

If your home is duct sealed, your energy consumption lowers. This means that you also contribute to not putting too much stress on the environment and to energy sources, hence less pollution and less emission of greenhouse gases. Imagine if duct sealing is implemented by all American households, this would have positive impacts on the environment.

So when do you determine if you need to seal your ducts? It is important that during home construction, or installation of your HVAC system, duct sealing should already be an essential part of the plan. If you have an old home, you should look out for warning signs to alert you on duct sealing issues. These warning signs include hot and uncomfortable rooms, fluctuating room temperature, increased energy costs during the winter and summer and tangled ductwork.

When in doubt, always remember that you should trust a professional. For this, contact only FOR Energy.

Why Should You Have Your Air Ducts Inspected?

Tips in Repairing Your Duct Sealing

If you would like to tinker with your duct sealing, or for minor issues, we have some tips for you. This is because we want to make sure that if you are a homeowner with a strict budget, you are able to fix some common problems with your ductwork yourself.

At the outset, understand that your ductwork likely follows a design that is similar to a tree system. This means that you have main duct lines, duct branches and connectors. Below are our tips for those who want to do DIY repairs:

1. How to repair the main duct lines
The main duct lines in your ductwork is most likely made of metal or fibreglass. This means that is most likely not flexible. As such, if there are issues with the main lines, you might have to employ cutting up a patch of material that is similar to the one that is being repaired. Then, you must stick or fasten it over the breach. Afterwards, you will need to apply caulk and/or tape as a final seal. For smaller parts of the main duct lines, the caulk or tape may be enough.
2. How to repair the duct branch lines
The duct branch lines are usually small and flexible. As such, it is easier to repair these parts. You may only apply duct tape to seal the breach. Otherwise, you may need to cut up a similar material to the one being repaired and attach it by using screws or a caulk. You may also want to just replace the duct altogether.
3. How to repair boots, registers and line attachments.
Now these parts may be a little more complicated. The boot technically refers to a metal hardware that is attached to the vent on one side and to the duct line on the other side. When this particular part is damaged, you can try caulks, patches or epoxies. If the duct line attached to the boot is the one damaged, you will need to remove and reattach the connection. Again, you will need to use caulk or duct tape in order to repair it.
