In the past, energy efficiency wasn’t the priority that it is today. Many homes today still contain above-ground ducts that aren’t as energy efficient as their modern counterparts. Over time, seals in joints in above ground metal ductwork become loose and cause leaks that lead to energy loss, increased energy bills and contamination of indoor air. Sealing of leaking overhead air ducts and encapsulating fiberglass fibers and odors in overhead ducts are two solutions provided by Trenchless Innovations to remedy these common problems.

The primary purpose of an air duct liner is to absorb and reduce noise that travels through the ducts from your HVAC system and other places. Liners also help insulate the ducts, keeping your residence more comfortable and energy efficient.

Liners are fairly easy to install and are reasonably priced. For more information on air duct liners or other ductwork services, call on the experts at Trenchless Innovations.

The safety of fiberglass air ducts may be called into question in older types of ductwork. When older ducts with fiberglass insulation are damaged or deteriorated, they could potentially expose raw fiberglass fibers into the airstream if they were not manufactured with any protective barrier. Fiberglass continues to be used in duct installation today but is now required to be produced with strict erosion restriction guidelines.

It costs around $1,500-$6,000 to have air ducts replaced in Chicago, IL. Some things that can affect the overall price are: 

  • The square footage of your air ducts. 
  • The material the new air ducts are made of.

Another thing that can impact the cost is how accessible the air ducts are. If the air ducts are difficult to access, the contractor may need to cut into ceilings or floors to access them. To learn more about getting your air ducts replaced, contact us today

You can use the following methods to seal around ductwork in your Chicago area home: 

  • Aluminum foil tape. 
  • Water based mastic duct sealant.
  • Aerosol duct sealant. 

Sealing around your ductwork is important because even the smallest of leaks can allow debris to get into your air ducts. Additionally, if your air ducts have leaks that are not sealed, your home will not be cooled and heated as effectively. To get your ductwork sealed, call us today

Duct Sealing

The EPA estimates that indoor air is two to five times more polluted than the air outdoors. Think about it. If dirt and other pollutants find a way into your overhead air duct system and there are unsealed joints or cracks in them, it will find a way into your indoor air. Sealing your overhead ductwork increases the efficiency of your HVAC system and keeps pollutants out of your indoor air.

Our sealing process provides an airtight seal to restore your ducts by coating the seams or joints or by coating the entire interior of your air ducts. Furthermore, we seal overhead ducts from the inside because many times it is the only way to access them due to obstacles that make it nearly impossible to access them any other way. As a result, you’ll enjoy increased energy efficiency and less strain on your overhead duct system.

Sealing also promotes healthier air in your home or business by ensuring that dirt and debris are not pulled back into your ducts and continually recirculated. The bottom line? You’ll feel better because the air in your home or business will be cleaner.

One last advantage of sealing your ducts? The cost of sealing your overhead air ducts is easier on your pocketbook than complete replacement of your overhead system because restoration work typically found with replacement is minimal or eliminated.

Many above-ground ducts are manufactured with a fiberglass liner to provide insulation and sound reduction. The problem with this is that over time the liner breaks down and releases the fiberglass fibers into the air. For overhead air duct systems that contain this deteriorating fiberglass duct liner, we encapsulate and seal the loose particles. As a result, these particles are locked down and prevented from entering your indoor air.

Our process also encapsulates odors, such as the residual smoke smell from a fire or smells from heavy cigarette use, by sealing them in and thus, making your indoor air fresher and cleaner.

Above Ground Air Duct Solutions: Benefits

Sealing your above ground air ducts provides many long-lasting benefits:

  • Increased system efficiency. Leaky air ducts waste energy and cause your system to work harder. Sealing leaks reduces the strain put on your system, therefore, leading to less wasted energy and greater indoor comfort for you.

  • You’ll save money. Our long-lasting process is much more cost efficient than replacing your entire overhead system because it eliminates the restoration work that comes along with replacement. Additionally, you will see decreases in your energy bill too because with leaks sealed up, your system is running more efficiently.

  • The air you breathe will be cleaner. Our process promotes healthy air quality by sealing cracks in your pipes where common irritants, such as dust, dirt or fiberglass fibers find their way in.
