Aeroseal Duct Sealing For ChicagolandWith the rising cost of energy many homeowners are looking for ways to reduce heat loss and maximize energy efficiency. Even if your home is well insulated and you have a brand new, ultra-efficient furnace, as much as 20 to 30 percent of the heated air never makes it to the rooms where it is needed. Why? Because of leaks in the duct work.
It's important to remember that your furnace and air conditioner are part of a system. Your home's air delivery system is a complex network of metal ducts and joints connected and sealed with tapes and adhesives. However, even with taping and a insulated duct covering, the air loss around seams and joints is significant.
Any duct leakage translates into extra air that must be supplied so sufficient heating or cooling reaches the conditioned space. This not only increases effective heating and cooling loads, it also increases fan energy due to increased flow and/or run time. Sealing duct leaks reduces the amount of heated or cooled air the supply fan must handle to deliver the same amount of air to the conditioned space.
Introducing Aeroseal – A Revolutionary New Technology For Duct SealingAeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows your ABC HVAC technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in the home. To seal leaks in the air ducts, the Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure, causes polymer particles to stick to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is completely sealed off.
In addition to the annual cost savings you'll enjoy greater comfort and improved indoor air quality. Rooms that were hard to heat or cool will have more even temperatures and be more comfortable, while dust and fumes from once leaking return air ducts will no longer be drawn back into the fresh air supply.
