The Power of Aeroseal: A Comprehensive Guide to Efficient Duct Sealing

As an expert in the HVAC industry, I have witnessed firsthand the negative impact of inefficient ducts on air conditioning systems. When ducts are not properly sealed, the system has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature, resulting in a decrease in efficiency by 20 to 45 percent. This not only leads to higher energy bills, but also accelerates wear and tear on the system, leading to costly and frequent repairs. Unfortunately, leaks are a common problem in many duct systems, preventing the air conditioning produced by the HVAC system from reaching your living spaces.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an average home loses 20 to 30 percent of its air conditioning through duct leaks. Some of the air escapes the duct system entirely, while the rest reaches different areas of the house such as bedrooms, kitchen, and living room. That's where Aeroseal comes in. With a proven track record of over four decades, Aeroseal is a highly effective service for sealing cracks and holes in ducts.

In fact, it has exceeded all UL durability standards and comes with a 10-year warranty for labor and parts in case of any failure in the seal. But don't let that fool you - the Aeroseal seal itself can last for decades. At Air Pros, we are proud to offer Aeroseal duct sealing services to our customers. However, since it is a relatively new service, many people still have questions about it.

So, let's take a closer look at some of the most common questions and concerns surrounding Aeroseal.

The Importance of Sealing Ducts

When you turn on your air conditioner or oven, you expect all the cold or hot air to reach the interior of your home. However, if your ducts are leaking, that may not be the case. The air conditioning produced by the system may escape through the leaks, resulting in an inefficient and ineffective cooling or heating process.

Moreover, if the interior surfaces of the ducts are wet or hold stagnant water, it can lead to further damage. The joints can soften and deteriorate over time, especially if they come into contact with water or are submerged in it. This can lead to even more leaks and inefficiency in the system.

The Benefits of Aeroseal

Sealing ducts yourself can be a daunting task, as it requires a lot of guesswork.

On the other hand, a certified Aeroseal technician can easily find and seal all the places where air is escaping from the ducts. This ensures that the job is done correctly and effectively. But that's not all - Aeroseal also helps prevent contaminants from entering the circulating air. According to the U.

S. Department of Energy, sealing air ducts is one of the most important and beneficial ways to improve energy consumption in homes. It not only helps save money on energy bills, but also improves indoor air quality by keeping out dust, allergens, and other pollutants. In fact, significant advances in test procedures have revealed that most heating and air conditioning problems are actually due to poor air distribution systems.

By sealing ducts with Aeroseal, you can ensure that your system is functioning at its best and providing optimal comfort for your home.

The Right Conditions for Aeroseal

Aeroseal is perfect for sealing sheet metal HVAC ducts lined with concrete, as long as the right conditions are met. This includes having a properly sized and designed duct system, as well as ensuring that the ducts are clean and free of debris. A certified technician can assess your duct system and determine if Aeroseal is the right solution for you.
