Air & Duct Sealing

Rochester's reliable duct sealing Service

Did you know that air escaping through unseen cracks and gaps in your home accounts for as much as 25% of your heating and cooling bill? Taylor Heating Inc will scour your home for inefficiencies in order to alleviate this waste. Your attic, basement, duct system, floor moldings, doors, windows, plumbing chases, recessed lighting and electric outlets are all likely culprits for this loss of air. Because of the vast variety of possible problem spots, it's important to call an experienced professional to make a thorough assessment of your situation so that you can take the proper steps to fix the problem.

Expert diagnosis and immediate benefits

Improving home performance with ENERGY STAR helps eliminate inefficiencies in your air duct system, and Taylor Heating Inc will help you get it done! Our Taylor Home Energy division is accredited by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and will test your home using the latest computerized diagnostic equipment. We will perform a “blower door” test to accurately measure and detect air loss in your home.

Once we detect air leaks, we can use materials such as sealant foams, rigid baffles, caulking, weather stripping, and rigid insulation to eliminate air passages in attics, basements, and living areas.

Benefits of home air sealing
  • Improved comfort, especially during hot or cold weather
  • Reduced energy loss and lower utility bills
  • Reduced risk of ice dams, mold, mildew, and structural damage caused by excess moisture
  • Reduced drafts for a more comfortable home, from room to room and season to season
  • Reduced pollen, dust, pollution, or insects in your home

Protect your home with professional duct sealing

In homes with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts distribute conditioned air throughout the house. A typical house loses about 20% of the air that moves through the duct system due to leaks, holes, and poorly-connected ducts. This results in higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

How do you know that your home has poorly-performing ducts?
  • High summer and winter utility bills
  • Rooms that are difficult to heat or cool
  • Stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
  • Ducts in an attic, crawlspace or the garage
  • Tangled or kinked flexible ducts
  • A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy-efficient and safe.

The Taylor Heating Inc duct sealing process

When you have a Taylor technician look over your home’s duct systems to identify leaks and other concerns, here’s what we do:
  • Inspect the whole duct system, including the attic, crawlspace, garage and basement.
  • Evaluate the system’s supply and return air balance – many systems have return ducts that are too small.
  • Repair damaged and disconnected ducts and straighten out flexible ducts that are tangled or crushed.
  • Seal all leaks and connections with mastic, metal tape or an aerosol-based sealant.
  • Seal all registers and grilles tightly to the ducts.
  • Insulate ducts in unconditioned areas with duct insulation that carries an R-value of 6 or higher.
  • Include a new filter.
  • Evaluate air flow after repairs are completed.
  • Ensure there is no backdrafting of gas or oil-burning appliances, and conduct a combustion safety test after ducts are sealed.
