The air ducts can be one of the biggest wasters of energy in the average home or commercial building. While this can be an invisible problem to the homeowner, it is very noticeable in the monthly power bill. The average home in America is wasting 20-30% of the conditioned air that is intended for the living space.
Aeroseal can reduce duct leakage by up to 90%, and reduce your energy use by up to 30%. Aeroseal has also been shown to dramatically improve comfort and homeowner satisfaction with their heating and cooling systems.
You can see a water leak, but an air leak is invisible. Duct leaks can be difficult and costly to find with ductwork hidden between the walls, floors, and ceilings of any residential homes or commercial buildings. The older, traditional use of mastic (a messy caulk-like substance) or taping of leaks not only is less effective than Aeroseal but also can be very labor-intensive and expensive, and it can only be applied to ducts with physical access. Other substances break down over time, but the Aeroseal sealant does not and even has a 10 year warranty to back it up.
Aeroseal locates every leak in the duct system and seals the leak from the interior of the ductwork.
What are the benefits?
How Does Aeroseal work?
- The patented Aeroseal duct-sealing technology is an effective and affordable method of sealing ductwork systems. The Aeroseal duct sealing process begins and ends by conducting a thorough diagnostic test of the duct system.
- The diffusers are temporarily blocked while sealant is blown throughout the duct system. Pressure maintained within the system causes the air to accelerate as it exits through the leaks. The Aeroseal particles build up to span and seal the holes – up to 5/8 of an inch – without coating the ductwork. Aeroseal effectively seals ductwork from the inside out by using UL-tested and approved sealing material.
- At the conclusion of the process, the diagnostic test is performed again summarizing your building’s amount of leakage reduction to ensure Aeroseal was successful.
- Additionally, the Department of Energy declared Aeroseal as one of the most beneficial energy technologies for American Consumers.
Energy 100" Award - U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
The Aeroseal process won the "Energy 100" award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE also rated the Aeroseal duct sealing process as one of the 23 most beneficial technologies available to American consumers that has come out since the agency was created.
2011 Best New Product Award – This Old House magazine
The building technology editors at This Old House magazine told us they have been keeping an eye on Aeroseal technology ever since it emerged from the research labs at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Now that the duct sealing solution is available for the first time to more U.S. home owners than ever before, they felt it was time to help spread the word about this “home energy conservation game changer.” Aeroseal won top honors in the Home Technology category for the This Old House 2011 Best New Home Product Awards.
"Best of What's New" Award - Popular Science magazine
The Aeroseal process won the "Best of What's New" award from Popular Science magazine. Aeroseal diagnostic air duct system sealing process is the most effective, affordable, and viable method of sealing the central heating and cooling ductwork in your home.
