How Long Does Air Duct Sealant Last? - An Expert's Perspective

When it comes to duct sealing, duct putty is widely regarded as the best solution. This sticky material does not harden, is non-toxic and flame resistant. It can be applied with a caulking gun or spatula and can last up to 20 years. Aeroseal, on the other hand, is designed and proven to last up to 40 years with virtually no bug reports in that period of time.

Plus, it comes with a 10-year warranty for seals that are installed following their patented procedures. In general, air duct seals are designed to last 15 to 30 years. However, many don't end up lasting that long due to lack of preventive maintenance every year. Professional air duct maintenance by Triple Service Inc. can help ensure that your sealant lasts as long as it should.

Sealing ducts with Aeroseal technology can also help you save energy. Aeroseal is composed of polymers, long molecules that bind together and seal leaks, holes or misalignments in the ducts. It works by injecting an aerosol sealant into ducts to detect air leaks and block them. This process involves applying specialized metallic putty or tape to all joints and connections of an air duct system. The sealing particles go to the leak points (joints, joints, gaps) of the duct network and adhere to the edge of the opening and begin to form a seal. Sealing air ducts is important for several reasons.

It helps prevent air from reaching places it's not supposed to, like your basement, attic or mezzanine. It also helps prevent mold from forming due to moisture coming out of the air ducts. If you see an increase in your energy bills without an increase in consumption, this could be a sign that there is a leak in the air ducts and may need to be sealed. Fortunately, Triple Service Inc has the knowledge, skills and resources to seal your air ducts properly and optimize efficiency. However, this isn't a project you should try perform on your own.
