The ducts in your home are an integral part of your climate control systems, which means that they should receive just as much care as your air conditioner or heater. If you haven’t been scheduling professional services for your ducts, don’t worry. You can always start right now and improve your climate control systems in the process. One of the best ways to improve your ducts is to have them sealed, and one of the best ways to do that is with Aeroseal.
Why It’s Necessary
Ducts are incredibly prone to developing leaks over time, and while each individual leak is small, their effects add up. The US Department of Energy has estimated that the average forced air climate control system loses around 30% of its total output to duct leaks. That’s a massive amount of output going to waste, output you’re still paying for.
And fixing them is not as simple as applying duct tape. In fact, duct tape is not aptly named–it is not actually intended to seal ducts. If you want to make your home more comfortable, and your climate control more energy efficient, you’re going to need to have those leaks taken care of.
Aeroseal duct sealing is a method first developed by the Energy Performance of Buildings Group in 1994. Once the ducts have been isolated and pressurized, a mist of particles is dispersed throughout. These particles seek out all the leaks in your ducts, and stick to them in order to seal them. This is a faster method than treating each leak manually, which is what the standard practice is. Aersoseal duct sealing can treat every leak in your home at once, ensuring that you reap the maximum benefit.
