We offer proprietary steps in duct sealing and duct system installation!
Air Duct Sealing
We seal and insulate flex duct connections with a proprietary expanding foam. It offers an insulation R-value of 4.5 per 1” of thickness. It is nontoxic, fire rated and provides a permanent seal. The average contractor only uses mastic to seal duct connections, which offers no insulation. See the comparison below of sealing duct connections with mastic alone vs our expanding foam.
The most important part of a duct system is proper design. 80% of Duct systems we inspect are severely undersized causing major restrictions of the supply and return ducts. Undersized ductwork can cause many issues including; noisy air handler operation, motor failure, improper air flow to certain rooms, improper heating or cooling, moisture issues, bacteria growth and many more issues.
Free Duct Work Estimates
We evaluate the existing duct system for proper sizing, placement, circulation, insulation, and filtration. New duct systems include duct diagram, air flow calculation, and static pressure testing at completion.

Types of Ductwork
Flexible round duct is made out of a plastic interior hose encased in metal wiring and covered with fiberglass insulation. This is the most affordable type of duct system material. It is more susceptible to tears and leaks and does not last as long as metal ductwork. Lifespan of flexible duct is usually 15-30 years. The most common type of HVAC ductwork in residential Florida homes is flex duct.
METAL ROUND DUCT
Metal HVAC ductwork can last 50+ years if conditions are right. When insulation is degraded, the metal HVAC ductwork can be re insulated without replacing all of the ductwork. Metal ductwork can also be cleaned in certain applications. Metal HVAC ductwork is the most expensive type of duct system to have installed.
FIBERGLASS DUCT BOARD
Fiberglass Duct board is usually used in applications where supply boxes are fabricated. Duct board is a similar application to flex duct, but costs are increased due to more labor involved. Duct Board is fairly durable and usually has the same lifespan as flex duct. You should not clean the duct board. Cleaning can release large quantities of insulation and fiberglass into the air stream.
Duct Cleaning & Maintenance
The best method for keeping a clean duct system is prevention. Changing filters regularly is very important. Periodically changing your air filters will help prevent contaminant build up in the blower wheel, evaporator coil and duct work.
