We don’t often talk about pre-sealed duct, but it is one of the simple and powerful ways that TCG Duct can save money on HVAC duct installation for your construction project.
Does your construction schedule include on-site laborers with chip brushes and cans of sealant, applying mastic or perhaps using newer spray sealants?
No matter the method, at TCG we can help you save on most or all of that on-site labor when you take advantage of our automated sealing services applied during duct fabrication.
The applicator in our Pittsburgh roll former delivers the perfect amount of sealant, bonding along all longitudinal seams with cold seam sealant. Automating the sealant process is infinitely more efficient than applying sealant by hand, where to seal each piece you may have attend to 2 or even 4 longitudinal seams, depending on the shape.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Locations on the duct system that should be sealed include all transverse joints, longitudinal, seams, and duct wall penetrations, as well as air handlers and filter boxes.
When included during the fabrication of HVAC duct and fittings, cold seam sealer is very inexpensive per linear foot, as it adds virtually no labor or extra time to the fabrication process.
We also provide insulated duct for the highest levels of noise reduction and energy efficiency.
The logic for pre-sealing ductwork is about more than saving costs vs. on-site sealing. Automated sealing with cold seam sealant is more precise and long-lasting. That means less air loss and reduced stress on the HVAC system over the long haul. TCG’s duct sealing techniques provide for energy savings, less wear, and maintenance— and cost savings for the life of the building.
Additionally, when working with TCG, you can take advantage of our precision estimating, manufacturing, and labeling services. We can deliver precision, labeled duct lengths that are simply easier to install, adding to a reduction in installation time and labor cost.
If your project is one where rigorous specifications and duct pressure testing are critical to success, then TCG’s pre-sealing can markedly increase seal strength and longevity. Add on a manual sealing pass with mastic or spray sealant, and your installation achieves a perfect and enduring seal.
With leaks minimized or eliminated, you also save labor when it comes to tracking down leaks and sealant issues.
