I have a torn duct in my attic. I was told, in leiu of replacing it, to wrap it with tin foil and seal it with duct tape, I did that and no air, or not nearly as much, is coming through the foil, but the air flow has not increased all that much. Is there something else I should try or should I just replace the duct?? And if replacement is needed, is that something I can do myself or should I have a professional work on it??

There is no kinks in the duct and I tried to pull all the loose insulation out of the inside of the duct.

you need to replace the tape with FOIL TAPE not duct tape

 duct tape will not hold up it wiill release ,Foil Tape will not .It cost more but it lasts
