Work with a Professional Duct
Most homeowners choose to work with a professional contractor for duct improvement projects. Some heating and cooling contractors do not repair ductwork; BUT WE DO! Look for a contractor that will:
Whole duct system inspection including crawlspace and attic.
Many units have air return ducts that are too small so we evaluate the units supply and return air balance.
Repair ducts that may be damaged or disconnected and straighten flexible ducts that are scrunched or tangled.
If any leaks are identified they are sealed with metal tape, mastic or a sealant.
Ensure all grills and registers are sealed tightly to the ducts.
Check ducts in unconditioned areas and insulate any that are not currently insulated with insulation that has an R-value of 6 or more. (attics, garages, crawlspaces, etc)
New air filter and air flow evaluation after repairs are finished.
Check to see if there is drafting from appliances that are gas or oil-burning and then perform a combustion safety examination after ducts have been properly sealed.

Common Duct Sealing Questions from Homeowners Like You!
What type of savings will I see with duct sealing?
Government studies have shown that proper air duct sealing can lead to a $850 energy savings per year. Some homeowners have even seen an up to 40% savings on their energy bill. Exact savings are dependent upon many variables like weather, house design and condition, HVAC system, and system usage are just a few.
Volt Doctors Heating and Air is qualified to run a program made by the EPA called “Duct Investor”. Duct Investor compiles a comprehensive list of variables and gives a homeowner a best available estimate of what they should see in cost savings.
Does the material used in the duct sealing process last?
We use the highest quality sealing material on the market that has been rigorously tested to last over 10 years without fail.
Should I get my air ducts cleaned before having them sealed?
Any holes or cracks in the ductwork has allowed dust and other particles to enter your unit. If you have noticed more household dust, this could be the reason. Duct cleaning is not required prior to sealing but in some instances could be advised. Speak to one of our experts to see whether or not duct cleaning may be advised prior to your duct sealing service.
Is the material used to seal my duct system safe?
Our team only uses the best materials on the market for our services. Our sealant material consists of a 65% water based solution prior to being applied. Once the sealant dries, the material consists of two chemicals, vinyl acetate polymer and 2-ethyl-1-hexanol or 2E1H. 2E1H is a very common industrial solvent and is considered non-toxic by OSHA.
Is the sealing service guaranteed? What if I noticed problems after?
We are so confident in the quality of work that we do that we will guarantee our repairs. Our duct sealing products also include a 10-year warranty that has ever rarely been used. If your experience is anything less than perfect, let us make it right!
