How to Tell if Your Ducts Have Been Sealed Right

Examining each section of the duct and the connection is the best way to determine if your ducts have been properly sealed. Look for any visible gaps, disconnections, and tears, as well as areas of the ducts that have adhesive tape attached. This is a sign that duct leaks have likely been fixed before. You may also need to have some aluminum heating, ventilation and air conditioning tape or putty sealant (specific for ducts) on hand in case you need to repair a leak.

Aeroseal is the most expensive duct sealing method, but it has an expected lifespan of 40 years, making it a worthwhile investment. Sealing the ducts every ten years is a good way to make sure that the air conditioning system is running as efficiently as possible. This will also help reduce dust and allergens in your home, lower energy consumption, and extend the life of your HVAC system. A correctly sealed duct system will stop extra dust and dirt from circulating throughout the house, resulting in cleaner air.

Ducts that are not properly sealed can cause air leaks, so cold and warm air will not be distributed evenly throughout the house. Aeroseal is an aerosol sealant that is pumped into the duct system from the inside and seals leaks as they move along the ducts.
