    Does it make a difference if the ducts are flex versus sheet metal?

    All of the new construction I have seen locally seem to use round flex ductwork. In this area everything is a split system (gas heat) with the ductwork in an unconditioned attic.

    Is there a sealant used for this flex ductwork?

    About what you said - duct leakage
    Can you be more specific, referring only to fabricated duct with s-locks & drives
    Rate or percentage of leakage ??
