How to Reduce Energy Costs & Improve Indoor Air Quality with Duct Sealing
Are you looking for ways to save money this winter and make your home more comfortable? Duct sealing is one of the most effective ways to reduce energy costs, eliminate hot or cold spots, and improve indoor air quality.
How Duct Sealing Can Reduce Energy Costs
Up to 30 percent of the air moving through a ducted heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system may be lost through holes and cracks. Chances are high that this is the case with the ductwork in your home. Studies show that as much as 90% of homes and businesses in North America have leaky ductwork.
The most energy efficient furnace in the world can’t do its job effectively if the ductwork is compromised. When leaks are eliminated, however, the heated air from your furnace makes it into your living spaces where it is intended, rather than being lost in attics, basements or crawl spaces. This means your furnace can operate more efficiently, with less waste and less wear and tear on the system. Because it doesn’t have to run as often to maintain the desired temperature throughout your home, the furnace uses less energy (lower utility bills), has fewer breakdowns and repairs, and has a longer useful life.
How Duct Sealing Can Improve Indoor Air Quality
The cracks and holes that allow heated air to escape can also allow dust and debris in. Circulating insulation particles, dust and household chemicals makes allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions worse. Sealed ducts keep contaminants out of the air stream that circulates through your home. The ducts stay cleaner, so your home and the indoor air stay cleaner as well.
In addition, the comfort level in your home improves because the heated air is getting to your living spaces more evenly. No more hot or cold spots.
Overview of the Aeroseal Duct Sealing Process
Aeroseal makes the process of sealing your air ducts easy and effective.
- A certified technician begins with a system inspection to assess the condition of the ductwork.
- Next, the Aeroseal sealant is injected into the ductwork to find all the cracks and openings.
- The particles collect along the edges of any openings and build up until the leaks are completely sealed.
- Lastly, the technician analyzes the results and provides a printout showing a successful job.
