​Duct system leakage is a common problem in Arizona. Most older systems have leakage which can cost you money and make your home uncomfortable and dusty. Sealing leaky ducts can make your home more comfortable and help you save money.
duct sealing rebate
A leaky duct system can cost up to $200 on your energy bill each year. Our duct sealing program offers rebates of up to $200 per system when a participating contractor seals your duct system.
The duct sealing rebate is for duct systems that require some duct sealing to get them to a high performance level.
If your duct system is in need of significant repairs we also have a duct test & repair rebate of up to $400 per system. Our duct test & repair rebate requires the participating contractor to test the duct system and is designed for more complicated jobs that typically require repairs or system changes in addition to the sealing work.
Both rebates are based on the cost of the job.

benefits of duct sealing

Duct systems often have poorly sealed connections, loose fittings or disconnected duct runs. The result can be cooled air blown into your attic or hot air pulled into your air conditioning system. At higher elevations, you’re losing heated air. You also risk exposure to potential indoor air quality problems.

Many systems also have an undersized return. This limits the airflow of the system and makes the unit work harder to cool or heat your home. Right sizing and sealing the return will help your system run more efficiently and this is also covered as part of the duct seal rebate.

Sealing your home’s duct system to keep your heating and cooling costs low and ensure healthy indoor air quality.

duct leakage indicators
  • duct work insulation that has dark, discolored areas
  • rooms that are difficult to cool or heat, or seem stuffy or dusty
  • heat pump air that feels lukewarm or cold during winter
  • duct interiors often get dirty

hire a trained technician
It’s hard to tell if you have a problem with duct leakage just by looking at your duct work. In older homes metal duct work is often wrapped in insulation, which may hide some problems. That’s why we recommend hiring a trained technician who knows what to look for.
