What is Aeroseal?
The Aeroseal Process
Aeroseal’s patented duct sealing technology stops leaks from the inside out through a quick six-step process that pressurizes escaping air, causing polymer particles to stick first to leak edges, then stick to each other until the leak is sealed — all in just four to eight hours.
Using specially designed software, our technicians accurately measure the duct leakage in homes and commercial buildings. Next, we:
- Cover wall registers so air can only escape through leaks
- Inject sealant into the ducts for one hour
- Suspend tiny aerosol particles in the airflow through continuous air movement
- Cause particles to collide with and adhere to leaking cracks and holes
- Seal ducts — only 1 to 2 oz. of sealant material remains
- Complete a computer-generated analysis that summarizes your home or building’s leakage and verifies the Aeroseal process’ success
Aeroseal’s groundbreaking technology was developed and tested by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Indoor Environment Program. The U.S. Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Electric Power Research Institute and California Institute of Energy and Environment funded the research. Initial patents were granted to the University of California in 1996 and 1999; today, Aeroseal has an exclusive license to this innovative technology.
The Aeroseal process achieves:
- Improved indoor air quality
- Consistent temperatures from room to room
- Reduced odors and fume
- Improved air flow and ventilation in commercial buildings
- Decreased energy use and costs, dependent on climate, utility rates and your home’s HVAC system
