UNDERSTANDING AEROSEAL® AND ITS POTENTIAL FOR YOUR HOME
By now, you’ve likely seen one of our posts, ads, or emails about Aeroseal® DuctSealing from the Inside. But you might also question the need for Aeroseal or don’t understand exactly what it is or what it does or how it works.
And We Get It.
Say What, Now?
You may be familiar with “duct sealing” using mastic or tape, done by hand. And, if you needed THAT done, surely your HVAC contractor would do it for you – and they could. But as we all know, even duct tape (literally Duck Tape for ductwork) gets old and nasty and can come off. Same with mastic. Which means you still have leaks and then must go through the whole process again.
A Modern Solution
Aeroseal is certainly a new way of solving an old problem. For one thing, the installation is computer-controlled, which is a big change from the type of handwork you’re used to having contractors do. Not only that, but it fills leaks in your ductwork with an aerosol filler that is sprayed in, much like insulation. But it’s also much more permanent. Aeroseal is guaranteed to work for 10 years. But more than that, stress tests show it will last as long as 40 years.
Essentially, when your HVAC contractor performs a maintenance service on your home’s system, they should be evaluating three things:
- Heating and cooling equipment, which creates conditioned air for the home
- Air duct system, which distributes conditioned air to all your rooms/spaces.
- Home (thermal) envelope, which contains conditioned air within the home and doesn’t let it escape to the outside.
The New HVAC
HVAC is no longer just about making sure the furnace runs. We now focus on fixing common issues like hot/cold spots, dust/allergies, and high utility bills. However, those problems can persist even with brand new equipment. So, it’s important to make sure the ductwork and building envelope are doing their jobs effectively to ensure you get what you pay for, in HVAC equipment AND monthly utility service.
That’s Where We Come In.
