The air conditioning and heating in your home goes way beyond just the units themselves. Air ducts play a significant role in the distribution of temperature and air to the rest of the house and require just as much attention and maintenance as the rest of the system. This part of your system is also prone to eventual wear and tear and can eventually encounter leaks that may need sealing. Aeroseal duct sealing is an effective and energy-efficient way to improve air quality and airflow throughout your home, all while lower your energy bills.
How does this approach work? Simple.
Aeroseal is a rubberized, liquid sealant that is injected into a fan and is propelled through the duct system to seal off any leaks or holes that may exist. This sealant works from the inside out, making it the most effective approach there is – especially in duct systems that are insulated with leaks that may be harder to reach.
It’s essential to understand insulation does not equal completely sealed, and that insulation can lose around 20 to 30 percent of airflow into places like attics and basements. Most of the time, these types of ducts require that you remove all the insulation before being able to seal them and then require that you reinstall insulation afterward. Aeroseal goes around this and perfectly seals the entire system without the added hassle and expenses.
Once the air ducts are sealed, the amount of air loss is significantly reduced – if not eliminated. The air quality is cleaner, more consistent and overall improved. With the absence of leaks in the system, your home will be back to receiving the air control you want. This reduces the amount of energy consumption by your air conditioning unit and, in turn, will lower your energy bill significantly!
