I might use both then. The HVAC guy said that some of his clients request him to seal it with silicon. He said to use pure silicon if I do it.

Then maybe I'll go back over it with the aluminum duct tape.

If you get a quality aluminum tape there will be about 1-2mm of adhesive on the back side. There would be no added benefit of using silicone in addition to the aluminum tape, the aluminum tape will create a solid seal.



Having diverters inside the 90 is Very good, was going to ask if they did anything like that, glad they did.

Use the aluminum, Luke.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Aluminum tape is the bomb. Seriously thou, my house is Energy Star certified and has every HVAC joint wrapped in the stuff. I was using the stuff to seal the joints in my insulation when I was putting it up in the basement. It's like duct tape for duct tape... if that makes sense. laugh

Ok. I'm convinced. Aluminum duct tape it is. As soon as I find the time to do it. Going to a birthday breakfast this morning, then some of them will probably come to my house for a couple of movies.

I know you are all easily entertained. grin So, here's the picture of my new duct work after it's been all sealed up with duct tape. Yippee! Now I can actually work on getting the speaker installed.

Oooh Shiny!!!!!!

Also, can somebody please tell me if contractors and home tradesmen are superstitious and if part of that superstition is they they feel it is bad luck not to leave at lease one nail or screw lying around in an enclosed space. It seems like it's a rule. If you pick up that last nail you dropped, something bound is sure to happen.


With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

That's a gripe of mine. In all the work the I've had done on my house, I have only had a couple contractors completely clean up after themselves. It even happens with contractors that have worked here numerous times and I've gained a rapport.

I'm sure the fact that the majority of contractors are men has something to do with it. That's obviously not credible reason though.

In the grand scheme of things, I think that poor cleanup goes along with being a contractor.
