AeroSeal

Sealing Ducts Leaks

Effective. Affordable. Simple.

You wouldn't carry water in a bucket with holes in it, why do the same with your ductwork?

Aeroseal is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles duct leaks from the inside out. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is completely sealed. Sealing ductwork used to be a huge hassle – messy mastic paste and tape that never seem to really do the job right. With Aeroseal, you can enjoy all the benefits of duct sealing without the mess:

  • Increase Your Comfort

  • Lower Energy Consumption

  • Improve Air Quality

  • HVAC Efficiency

  • Pre & Post Leakage Measurements

 
 

notice each room is a different temperature?

People struggling with high temperature variations between rooms or floors might not realize most of their conditioned air is escaping through duct leaks instead of flowing into their living space! Leaks in your ductwork allow cooled or heated air to escape into your attic, basement, crawlspace or even into your walls.

notice little or no air flowing from your registers?

Your HVAC system is using energy to push conditioned air through your ductwork and into your living spaces. When your duct system contains leaks this conditioned air is actually pushed into your attic, crawlspace, or basement.

Sealing your ductworks will allow your system to properly heat and cool your home by keeping conditioned air where you want it.


Benefits of Home Duct Sealing with Aeroseal

Aeroseal Home Duct Sealing can improve your home comfort, reduce your energy bills, and improve your indoor air quality.

Home Comfort

The #1 reason home owners want Aeroseal Home Duct Sealing is because they experience hot and cold rooms or high temp differences between upstairs vs downstairs living areas.  The majority of homes we see suffer from these issues due to leaky duct work not delivering conditioned air where it is meant to go! Our simple process seals leaky ductwork from the inside – even the hidden ductwork behind your walls!

Indoor Air Quality & Home Safety

Many home owners notice dust collection around registers and higher than average dust collecting on surfaces throughout their homes.  Leaky ducts pull dust, mold, and other pollutants into your home, presenting indoor air quality issues and creating and/or aggravating allergy problems.  Duct leaks also contribute to safety issues in residential homes relating to back drafting of gas appliance fumes, auto exhaust and radon gas into your living space. Aeroseal home duct sealing will keep those dust, mold, and pollutants from being pulled into your living areas improving your air quality!

Energy Savings & Utility Bills

Nearly 50% of the average home’s and commercial building energy bill is spent on heating air conditioning and ventilation. Duct leakage in residential homes costs consumers $25 billion each year and costs much more to the commercial building operators / owners. On average, 30 cents of every $1 you spend on heating and cooling your home or building disappears into thin air due to duct leaks.

How do we know that DUCTS LEAK?

In houses with forced air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. But in typical houses, about 20% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

20-40% of conditioned air (hot/cold)
leaks out of the ductwork!

3 Easy Steps of the AEROSEAL PROCESS

STEP 1: PREP & TEST

Prepare System / Blocking

Registers are temporarily blocked with foam plugs to force air in the duct work to escape through any leaks. Then the air conditioning indoor coil, fan, and furnace are also temporarily blocked with a foam plug to prevent sealant particles from entering this part of the HVAC system.

Connect System to Ductwork

Once the system is properly prepped, the Aeroseal machine is connected to the duct work using lay flat tubing. A small access hole (which will be closed upon project completion) is cut into the supply or return, and a temporary collar is attached. One end of the tubing connects to the collar; the other end connects to the Aeroseal machine.

Pretest Ductwork

The Aeroseal system runs a pretest that pressurizes the duct system and provides a leakage reading on the computer. It will detect the exact amount of duct leakage in the duct system (the typical duct leakage detected in a home is between 30-40%).

STEP 2: SEAL & MEASURE

Leaky Ducts Are Found

The patented aerosol sealant is injected as a mist into the ductwork. Holes and cracks in the duct system are found by the pressurization.

Sealant Seals The Ductwork

The aerosol particles collect on the edges of holes and cracks in the ductwork to seal them from the inside.

Monitor Process

This entire process is computer controlled so technicians can monitor the progress in realtime and watch the minute by minute reduction in leakage.

STEP 3: ENJOY COMFORT & ENERGY SAVINGS

Certificate of Completion

Upon completion, the homeowner is presented with verifiable proof of the seal in the form of a computer generated certificate, which includes before and after results of the Aeroseal application.

The Results are Instant

Once the entire project is complete, homeowners will notice the results immediately. Temperatures throughout the home will be more even, hot and cold spots should be eliminated and the HVAC system will run more efficiently, which will help to save money on utility bills.

Homeowners will also notice improved indoor air quality. There should be less dust, fewer allergens and cleaner air.
