When you hear the term “home energy solutions,” what comes to mind? If you’re like many homeowners, it’s your heating and cooling systems. These do, after all, account for over half of a home’s energy use. So you want them to work as efficiently and effectively as possible, right? But your HVAC systems simply cannot perform well if your ductwork is damaged or torn.
If this is the case, you need duct sealing! You may be wondering, “Why would I need to have this done professionally? Can’t I just seal up ducts myself with duct tape?”
Well, no. Duct sealing is not something you can or should do on your own with a roll of duct tape. The reason for this is mainly because duct tape isn’t appropriately named! It’s not actually the right tool for sealing actual HVAC ducts—for this you need the use of professional-grade mastic and the skills of an experienced HVAC technician.
