Duct sealing is a service that Cozy Home Performance has offer to clients for many years. Now homeowners and get this service incentivized through the Mass Save Program. Which means that when you get your audit through Mass Save the auditor will inspect your ducts to determine of they qualify, and you can received 75% off the cost of the work.
The air sealing and insulating of ducts is an important step in moving your home toward being more energy efficient and comfortable The ducts of your furnace and-or A/C unit should provide the proper distribution of heat and air conditioning throughout your home.
If you have distribution ducts in your attic and they are not properly air sealed or insulated that means during the heating season, as the heated air passed through the ducts a percentage of that heated air is escaping into the attic and never reaching the living space. In the winter your attic is as cold as it is outside, so if your ducts are not properly insulated from the cold of the attic, then as the warm air passes through the ducts the heat in the air is being drawn out towards the cold. This means that you are not getting the full benefit of the fuel you are burning to heat the air. And you need to burn extra fuel and keep the thermostat up longer to make up for it.

I’m happy that the incentive was more than anticipated (As a Home Performance Contractor with Mass Save Cozy Home secured $2,760 in project incentive funds.). I enjoyed working with you and your crew. Everyone was pleasant to deal with. They were professional and courteous and when I had questions, the answers were in a non-technical response so I could understand. Each day they left the area clean.
Someone from the utility company was here today to inspect the work resulting from their incentive. They were very positive both about the quality of the recommendation, and the quality of the work. I am pleased too. I’m almost looking forward to next winter to see the difference.
The house definitely feels different – hard to explain the feeling, maybe more solid? Anyway, we have checked out all the work areas that we could and are really impressed. We can already feel the difference in some rooms – even with the warmer weather! Thanks to all the guys who were at the house. They were all very polite and pleasant and seem to have done an awesome job!
