It's that time of year when we really begin to feel very cold rooms in our house! Typically, many would think that the reason for why your child's bedroom is so cold in the winter time is that "it's above a garage", "poor insulation" or rather accept the common belief that "that's how it usually is!". Well, it ISN'T! Nor should you settle for these excuses. Your home should be a place of comfort and shelter. Why compromise?
When air ducts in homes are not properly sealed, there are holes/cracks/seams, large and small present in ductwork that cause conditioned air from the furnace to "leak out" before it reaches the air vents in your rooms.
Your HVAC system is using energy to push conditioned air through your ductwork and into your living spaces. When your duct system contains leaks this conditioned air is actually pushed into your floors and walls - where your ductwork travels through.
Sealing your ductwork will allow your HVAC system to properly heat (and cool - in the summer time) your home by keeping conditioned air to freely travel to the places your actually occupy - like your child's bedroom!
Aeroseal is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles duct leaks from the inside out. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is completely sealed.
Benefits of Home Duct Sealing with Aeroseal
The #1 reason home owners want Aeroseal Home Duct Sealing is because they experience hot and cold rooms or high temp differences between upstairs vs downstairs living areas. The majority of homes we see suffer from these issues due to leaky duct work not delivering conditioned air where it is meant to go!
Our simple process seals leaky ductwork from the inside – even the hidden ductwork behind your walls!
Indoor Air Quality & Home Safety
Many home owners notice dust collection around registers and higher than average dust collecting on surfaces throughout their homes. Leaky ducts pull dust, mold, and other pollutants into your home, presenting indoor air quality issues and creating and/or aggravating allergy problems. Duct leaks also contribute to safety issues in residential homes relating to back drafting of gas appliance fumes, auto exhaust and radon gas into your living space.
Aeroseal home duct sealing will keep those dust, mold, and pollutants from being pulled into your living areas improving your air quality!
Energy Savings & Utility Bills
Nearly 50% of the average home’s and commercial building energy bill is spent on heating air conditioning and ventilation. Duct leakage in residential homes costs consumers $25 billion each year and costs much more to the commercial building operators / owners.
On average, 30 cents of every $1 you spend on heating and cooling your home or building disappears into thin air due to duct leaks.
