CAN I SEAL MY OWN DUCTWORK?
To answer the question posed in the title of this post right off the bat: no way. If you have any reason to suspect that your ductwork is leaking — and we’ll give you a few warning signs to look out for below — you need to skip the toolbox and go right to the phone. Professional duct sealing in Houston, TX is the only way to get your air ducts back in prime working condition.
Why Not Just Do It Myself?
There are a few reasons as to why you really must hire a professional to seal your ductwork. First and foremost is the fact that this is the only way in which you can know for certain that the source of the leak is pinpointed accurately. If you require duct sealing, there is a good chance that you’ll need the service in a few different spots. We’ll make sure that every leak is dealt with effectively.
Secondly, there is the fact that you cannot really access your air ducts on your own. It can be tricky to do so without damaging your property or the ductwork itself, even if you do somehow figure out where the portion requiring sealing is. We’ll get the job done without compromising your home in the process.
Finally, you cannot fix the problem with duct tape! We know how useful this tape can be, but it actually breaks down rather quickly and should never, ever, be applied to the ductwork in your home. We use mastic sealant that will harden up once applied in order to keep your ducts sealed in the long run.
If you notice spikes in your energy costs, if your home has hot or cold spots throughout, or if your indoor air quality is plummeting, give us a call right away. All of these symptoms could be the result of leaky ductwork.
