Duct Sealing 101

Ducts
In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.

How Insulation Works

Ducts
Insulation in your home provides resistance to heat flow.
The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs. Properly insulating your home not only reduces heating and cooling costs, but also improves comfort — take it from your local Denver, CO, AC repair experts here at Blue Sky!
To understand how insulation works it helps to understand heat flow, which involves three basic mechanisms -- conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the way heat moves through materials, such as when a spoon placed in a hot cup of coffee conducts heat through its handle to your hand. Convection is the way heat circulates through liquids and gases, and is why lighter, warmer air rises, and cooler, denser air sinks in your home. Radiant heat travels in a straight line and heats anything solid in its path that absorbs its energy.

Duct Insulation

Ducts
Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or insulated they are likely contributing to higher energy bills. Learn more about ducts below, courtesy of Denver's favorite heating repair company, Blue Sky!
Your home's duct system is a branching network of tubes in the walls, floors, and ceilings; it carries the air from your home's furnace and central air conditioner to each room. Ducts are made of sheet metal, fiberglass, or other materials.
Ducts that leak heated air into unheated spaces can add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually very cost-effective. If you are installing a new duct system, make sure it comes with insulation.

Hear What Our Customers Say
Bill C. came to our house to service the furnace and fix a spigot. He was very professional and courteous. I got a call when he was on the way, he was on time and he wore shoe covers. He explained everything he was doing and told me how much it would cost before he started. He was very knowledgeable and efficient. I highly recommend Blue Sky Plumbing & Heating!
