Seal In The Savings
Duct Sealing is a patented, breakthrough technology that tackles house leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. 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 closed.
What questions should I ask my Aeroseal contractor?
If you are getting a cost estimate for Aeroseal, here are a list of questions you should ask them to ensure you are getting the right duct sealing method for your house for the most cost effective price.
Can Aeroseal fix my hot or cold rooms?
Despite what companies say, hot and cold rooms are rarely solved with a single solution approach. We have seen homeowners come out with the short end of the stick again and again from companies promising that Aerosealing your ductwork will fix comfort problems. The only way to know the root causes of comfort problems is to perform an energy audit and test your home first. Many companies that offer Aeroseal do not perform a good energy audit with the homeowner's interest in mind. Your home may have duct leakage but if your insulation is installed wrong, ductwork is sized wrong and airflow imbalanced, Aerosealing can make the hot rooms hotter and cold rooms colder. How much will Aeroseal save me in energy costs?When looking at how much energy savings you can expect with Aeroseal or ductwork sealing in general, you must keep in mind where energy is being used in your home. In Arizona, half of our energy use comes from air conditioning in the summer. An energy auditor can take a look at your energy bills and if an audit is performed, put all the data into an energy model and heat load calculation to estimate how much savings you can expect to see.
What's the difference between Aeroseal and manual ductwork sealing?
Companies that primary promote Aeroseal will say that Aeroseal is superior to manual ductwork sealing but we don't believe that is the case. Manual ductwork sealing can be applied thicker than Aerosealing and seals larger holes bigger than 5/8".How long does Aeroseal last? Aeroseal is guaranteed for 10 years. Mastic ductwork sealing is guarenteed for 50 years. I believe both applications can last for 50 plus years.
When should Aerosealing be used and when is manual ductwork sealing recommended?
Manual ductwork should be used:
Aeroseal the ductwork should be used:
Is the sealant used in Aeroseal safe?
