Even Applies Inside Ductwork!
Open Return Cavities
Duct-EZ® outperforms similar duct sealing systems because it ensures building code compliance, meets all Energy Star® standards, and performs at extreme temperatures. The Duct-EZ® system uses a proprietary, water-based, zero-VOC mastic ready for spray or air-gasket application. Once properly applied, Duct-EZ® creates a flexible, air-tight seal. Duct-EZ® cold temperature performance is unlike any other! Duct-EZ® spray product can be applied at temperatures as low as 15ºF, and Duct-EZ® air gasket can be used at temperatures as low as –35ºF!
Duct-EZ® is a best-in-class product delivering:
Cost within your budget
Duct leakage of 4% or less
Reduce Pollutants & Allergens
A well-sealed system will not only help maximize the performance of the HVAC system, but it will also reduce the amount of pollutants, allergens, and dust circulating within the home.
Why Seal The Ductwork?
Homes that have forced air heating and cooling systems have ductwork to distribute the air throughout the home. The HVAC system works just like the human body’s respiratory system. When the system is running it is pushing air out to heat or cool the home; and it is pulling air in so that it can push the air out again. It functions just like “breathing”. But why is the home so dusty? Why are the utility bills so high? The answer is duct leakage. Sealing the ductwork properly will help reduce utility costs, polluted air, and it allows the air to flow to each designated areas. And if the ductwork has significant duct leakage it causes the system to perform below its optimal efficiency and shortens the life of the equipment.
Supply Side Leaks
When the supply side of the system leaks it is pushing the heated or cooled air to other parts of the home and to the outside through the leaks in the home. This is what we call HEAT BLEED. In this situation you are paying to heat or cool the air to be released outside which causes your utility bills to rise.
Return Side Leaks
Return side leaks are much worse. When the return side leaks it is pulling outdoor air into your home. This effect can cause the furnace or air conditioner to run constantly in order to keep the temperature in the home at the setting you want. This can also be the reason why a home has higher humidity levels. The biggest risk with return side leaks is that allergens, pollutants, dust, carbon monoxide, and even insulation can be pulled into the HVAC system and distributed throughout the home for you to breathe in. These may be the contributing factors as to why health issue such as asthma, cancer and allergies have been on the rise.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to improving a home to make it more energy efficient, save on utility costs and to make it a healthier home, duct sealing should be one of the first things to consider. The sealing of the ductwork may also lengthen the life of the equipment, make the home more comfortable and help to clean the air you are breathing.
