AIS Heating & Air Conditioning is proud to serve Bay Area homeowners, helping them to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We’re experienced in solving a host of HVAC problems, including various ductwork issues such as leaks and poorly designed or severely damaged ducts. One of the services we offer is duct sealing.
For outstanding air duct sealing services by our skilled technicians, contact AIS online today or call us at (510) 792-4328.
Leaks, poorly sealed joints, and lack of insulation can all lead to inefficiencies that reflect on your monthly utility bills. Duct leaks will also prevent your HVAC system from achieving or maintaining a desirable temperature, so your ductwork is a core component of your household comfort.
Signs you need duct sealing include:
Duct sealing can eliminate all of those problems and more. Find out more by calling (510) 792-4328 or contacting AIS online.
Did you know that faulty ductwork can contribute to up to 25% of the energy losses in your Bay Area home? It can also affect indoor air quality, distributing pollutants and contaminants throughout your home. Properly sealed ductwork saves you money and keeps you and your home comfortable.
Along with keeping your heating and cooling system operating efficiently, the benefits of air duct sealing include:
If you’re ready to replace your old HVAC system, well-designed, well-sealed air ducts might also allow you to install a smaller and less costly HVAC system that’s better at dehumidification.

The secret to a successful duct seal is a precise diagnosis. This is achieved by using a calibrated fan to place the duct system under pressure.
When we measure airflow, we can identify your total duct leakage as well as the location of individual leaks.
From there, we will pinpoint the amount of air you’re losing via common weak points like attics and garages. Duct sealing relies on construction-grade seals, mastic, and mesh to plug breaches.
The best way to ensure your ductwork is operating at peak performance is to have it inspected and assessed by a trained technician. AIS provides exceptional air duct sealing services that are guaranteed to improve your home’s comfort.
Don’t wait for small air duct issues to become big problems. Contact AIS online today or call us at (510) 792-4328.
If you notice one or more rooms has a higher or lower temperature than other rooms, you see water leaking from a duct, or you can see visible cracks and holes in your ductwork, it’s time to call in a professional technician to seal and repair the ducts as quickly as possible.
Thanks to innovative fabrication techniques, duct sealing can last as long as the ducts themselves.
Traditional seals are designed to offer 30 years of sealing power. Flex duct sealants can achieve about half of that life span, but their durability relies on the quality of the seal and sealant.
Poorly chosen materials can fail within just three years, so it’s crucial to rely on a team that prides itself on quality ductwork services, starting with ductwork installation.
One or more of our trained technicians will look for obvious leaks in your ductwork. We’ll calculate how much circulated air your home is actually losing in places like the garage, attic, or between walls. Many people are surprised to learn how much air they are losing through leaky ducts and vents.
Yes, ducts can be successfully cleaned after being sealed.
Duct sealing is a form of duct repair, but the latter addresses a host of other problems. Torn or damaged ducts can’t always be repaired with a simple seal, so we might need to reconnect joints, repair S-locks, or place fiberglass duct boards.
Duct repairs can also address flawed or compromised designs. Ducts only function well with minimal turns and shortened pathways. If your ductwork was poorly designed, a repair could include a partial reinstallation. Repairs also address inadequate installation, which can lead to thermal loss.
The Department of Energy has found that air leaks and gaps in your ducts can reduce your HVAC efficiency by as much as 40%. Forced air systems can only achieve adequate airflow if your duct walls and joints are completely free of cracks and holes.
Heat conduction is a lesser-known problem that allows thermal energy to pass into the metal walls of the duct, thereby undoing all the hard work your system has been doing.
In short, your ducts are the core of your climate control efficiency, so they need care and attention.
Quite a lot! While exact savings are difficult to predict, government-sponsored studies show that sealing air ducts can save homeowners at least 20%; some save much more.
