Air Conditioning Repair Techs Talk About the Importance of Tape and Mastic
Air Conditioning Repair

Many property owners in El Paso realize that their homes’ refrigerated cooling systems rely on duct work to ensure proper air flow. Because of that reliance, it is important that homeowners ensure the duct work is maintained year round. Maintaining a cooling system’s duct work requires homeowners to do at least two things, keep it clean and air tight.

The system’s duct work should ideally be cleaned at least once a year by air conditioning repair technicians. At the same time, it is a good idea to have them check the system for leaks. If there are leaks in the duct system, property owners may be able to stop them without having to spend a lot of money. Why? Not all duct work holes are large enough to require total pipe replacement.

Sometimes the holes, tears or gaps are so small that applying one or more coats of mastic may do the trick. Air conditioning repair technicians know all about mastic. It is available over the counter at most local hardware or home improvement stores for a modest amount. Just be forewarned that it is a thick substance and generally doesn’t go very far. As such, it’s often best to buy the big containers of mastic instead of the little ones.

Air conditioning repair technicians use the man-made material to correct a number of duct work problems, breaks in the system being one of them. Depending on the materials used to make the duct and the size of the breach, it may be possible to use mastic alone or with other sealers. The list of other duct reinforcement materials includes but isn’t restricted to fiberglass board, fiberglass mesh tape, sheet-metal screws, metal collars and old-fashioned duct tape.
