Why You Shouldn’t Use Duct Tape to Fix Your Air Ducts

Do you use duct tape for everything?

Why is it called duct tape if you can’t use it to fix your air ducts?

Do you want to get the job done right the first time?

Back in the day, the military used duct tape for a variety of repairs, including keeping ammunition cases free of moisture. According to, “After the war, when the housing market was booming, the tape became available to civilians, and some manufacturers started selling it as a means to connect heating and air conditioning ducts.” But, this simply isn’t the end all solution to your air duct losses. It has been proven that “duct tape” is simply just a name, and it doesn’t measure up to an expert heating contractor diagnosing and fixing your heating and cooling problems.

The only way duct tape can be of use is in smaller projects where the risk of error is less significant. Seal your air ducts with a mastic sealant for increased comfort and energy efficiency that will last.
