Duct Sealing Service in Fresno, CA by Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning
If you cool and heat your home using ductwork, you know how much homeowners typically think about their ducts: not a lot. There are a few reasons for this, including the fact that most ductwork is hidden behind walls, making them fairly easy to forget about. However, your ductwork is a very important part of your HVAC system, and if the ductwork is faulty in any way, you and your HVAC will feel it in a number of ways. However, there is a great solution for your faulty ductwork: professional duct sealing services from Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning.

How Is Duct Sealing Different from Duct Repair or Replacement?
Duct sealing is not the same as duct repair or replacement because the process involves sealing your ducts, not repairing or replacing them. This means that while your ductwork may be faulty, it hasn’t been so damaged that full repair or replacement is needed.
The process is pretty straightforward: your Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning technician will thoroughly inspect your ductwork system and assess all areas that need to be sealed. To seal the faulty areas, i.e., areas that have holes, cracks or broken seals, your technician will use a fibrous adhesive called mastic. He/she will brush the mastic onto the area and let it dry; once the mastic dries, it becomes a hard, yet flexible, seal over the area for the long–term.
What Are the Benefits of Duct Sealing?
Faulty ductwork can equal up to 30% of your home’s total air loss. This is a tremendous amount of air to lose, and will impact your home in the following ways:
- Decreased energy efficiency – your HVAC system will work to compensate for the loss of air due to your faulty ductwork; as it does so, it uses more energy, reducing your system’s overall energy efficiency.
- Increased stress on your system – your system has to work harder to achieve the set temperature in your home when your property has faulty ductwork; this can result in excessive wear and tear to your system.
- Decreased comfort – faulty ductwork means that all the air generated by your HVAC system for your home’s living spaces isn’t all arriving as it should; this will decrease your comfort year–round.
- Decreased indoor air quality – not only will you see a lower volume of air coming into your home with faulty ductwork, you’ll also see the quality of that air diminish significantly. This is because contaminants, pollutants, odors and other undesirable material can easily enter your home through faulty ducts.
