How to Seal Air Ducts

If you have a HVAC system in your utility room or exposed ducts, then it is pretty easy to seal your ducts. Head down to your local hardware store and pick up a bucket of water-based air duct sealant, also called Mastic as well as some disposable paint brushes. This incredibly thick sealant needs to be painted on each place metal meets on your ducts. Apply a generous amount of air duct sealant to every seam along your ductwork. Once your air ducts are properly sealed and professionally cleaned, then you will start seeing savings and increased efficiency from your HVAC system.
