Duct Sealing Service in Raleigh & Durham, NC
Do you have leaky air ducts? If so, you could be throwing money away! When your ducts develop holes and tears, heated or chilled air from your HVAC unit escapes—meaning your HVAC unit has to work twice as hard to provide you with the optimal temperature. This can hurt both your wallet and your heating and cooling unit by overworking it to keep your home comfortable.
Along with your electrical and plumbing services, your duct network operates behind the scenes, acting as the circulatory system for your HVAC system. Supply and return vents deliver and then return conditioned air continuously throughout each room in your home—but the quality and quantity of air you receive can easily become compromised due to leaky ductwork.

The Consequences of Leaky Ductwork
In a typical home, between 20 and 30 percent of conditioned air is lost to holes, cracks, or areas of disconnect in the ducting network. The solution? Professional duct sealing services, which can help you avoid the following:
- Decreased efficiency. Under optimal conditions, your HVAC system will operate at peak performance. However, when conditioned or heated air escapes, the system must work even harder to reach the desired temperature in your home, decreasing the overall efficiency.
- Compromised air quality. Contaminated air from unconditioned spaces, such as your crawlspace or attic, may be drawn in to your duct system through areas of leakage, introducing particulates such as mold spores, dust, insulation particles, and more.
- Uneven heating. Are some rooms in your home warmer or colder than others? Leaky ductwork may be to blame, as conditioned air escapes before reaching its final destination.
- Increased energy costs. As your HVAC system is forced to work harder to replace air lost through leaky ducts, the amount of money it costs to heat or cool your home will rise.
- Shortened lifespan of equipment. System components may become dirty or prematurely worn due to overuse in an attempt to reach the desired setting on the thermostat.
Detecting & Repairing Air Leaks
If you are unsure if your ducts are leaking, you are not alone. Many air duct holes are small and not visible—meaning your ducts could be leaking without you even knowing! At Air Experts, we have the tools and equipment to know for sure if your air ducts are leaking.
We start by analyzing your ductwork throughout your home. This check involves specialized equipment that allows us to see the amount of air being leaked out of your ducts. Then, we find the cracks and holes using a blower test. This test forces air into or out of the home and through the ductwork which reveals leaks and leakage rates from room to room. Next, we visually inspect where the holes are located and decide if it is more efficient to seal the crack or replace the ductwork. Then, after we repair the ducts, we will analyze the results to ensure your ducts are no longer leaking.
Benefits of Professional Duct Sealing
Increased energy bills, lack of comfort, reduced airflow, and worsened allergy or asthma symptoms are all indicative of leaky ductwork and should be investigated by a trained technician. The benefits of professional duct sealing are immediate and long lasting, and include the following:
- Decreased energy bills
- Improved comfort
- Enhanced efficiency
- Cleaner indoor air
