If you’re worried about hot or cold air escaping from your ducts and not heating or cooling your home effectively, you’re not alone. Duct sealing is a popular way to save money on heating and cooling costs and stay more comfortable at home.
This tape simply goes over the places in your ducts where the air is leaking out. There are several different kinds of tape; we recommend any type of tape marked with the UL symbol, including butyl tape and foil tape.
If your ducts get oily or dirty, then duct sealing tape may not be a long-term solution. In fact, it is usually considered a temporary measure. If you want to use it long-term, you may need to plan on replacing it several times a year.
This is a gooey substance that can be applied to the joints and holes in your ducts. When it dries, it covers the spaces where air can usually escape. You can apply the mastic duct sealing substance with a regular paintbrush, making sure that it covers all of the area where the air is escaping your ducts.
You can cover large holes with mastic duct sealing, but you’ll need to use it on top of mesh to make sure that it covers the entire hole. Mastic duct sealing works well and can last for a long time, but you have to be sure you can find and access all of the places where the air is escaping.
Aeroseal duct sealing is a newer answer to the problem of how to seal leaky ducts. If you choose this method, professionals will pressurize your system, identify every hole in your ducts, and seal them all at once.
Aeroseal duct sealing uses a patented polymer that seals with the edges of the holes in your ducts, then seals with itself. It provides a lasting and complete seal. Aeroseal treatment can lower your energy costs significantly and keep them down for many years.

Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.
We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
