That the U.S. Department of Energy Estimates That the Average Home Loses 20-40% of its Conditioned Air Through Leaks in the Air Duct System?!

Air duct leakage is a major contributor to comfort problems, energy loss, and indoor air pollution in nearly all homes with forced air heating and cooling systems.

In Your Home Do You Experience?

AeroSeal With Ask This Old House

Duct leaks occur wherever there are seams in your sheet metal, where there are holes (more common than you’d think!), and where there are hidden disconnections.  If you take a quick look in your basement, we guarantee you’ll be able to find a few.

What Can I Expect From Having my Duct System Sealed with AeroSeal?

  1. Increased energy savings.  When your ductwork has been sealed, most homeowners will see a reduction in heating and cooling bills in a range of 10-30%!
  2. Improved comfort throughout your home. After being sealed, your ductwork will much more effectively deliver conditioned air throughout your home.  This keeps those tough to condition parts of your home warmer in the winter AND cooler in the summer!
  3. Improved safety.  When we manually seal the return duct work in your basement, the risk of your furnace or hot water back- drafting and pulling dangerous carbon monoxide into your home is reduced.

5an6-2The Aeroseal 6-step process delivers big savings and increased comfort:

  • Wall registers are covered in order for air to escape only through the leaks
  • Sealant is injected into the ducts
  • Microscopic aerosol particles are kept suspended in the airflow by continuous air movement
  • As the air stream makes a sharp turn to exit through a leak, the particles collide with and adhere to the leak edges
  • Ducts are sealed with only 1-2 oz. of the sealant material remaining in the ducts
  • A computer-generated analysis summarizing your building’s amount of leakage is generated, providing verification of success of the process
