Seal the Deal
An HVAC company does not become the best without paying attention to every detail of the business. Essential to the company’s success and reputation are the finest employees, customer service, and finally, the tools. As an official Aeroseal installer, we believe that only the best and most cutting-edge tools and processes are acceptable in serving Vancouver, Washington. The cold weather is upon us in the Pacific Northwest and you will see why this is the perfect time to ensure your ductwork system is properly sealed.
The Aeroseal process is, quite simply, the best in the HVAC business for ensuring the proper sealing of ductwork, and that is no small matter: “The U.S. Department of Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute determined 25% to 40% of the heating and cooling energy put out by heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems is lost through the ductwork system.”
What is Aeroseal?
“Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. 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 closed” (Aeroseal).
Why is sealing leaks critical?
“While energy savings resulting from reducing leakage vary based on climate, utility rates, and your heating and cooling system, the other goals of even temperatures in all rooms, improved indoor air quality, and reduction of odors and fumes will be achieved regardless of those conditions. In commercial building applications, Aeroseal also solves air flow and ventilation issues in addition to energy savings.”
The quality of indoor air could not be more important. “Duct leaks contribute to poor indoor air quality. Indoor air pollution is an EPA high-priority public risk with levels of pollutants indoors being up to 5 times higher than outdoor levels. According to the EPA, most people spend roughly 90% of their lives indoors. This makes indoor air pollution one of the five most urgent environmental problems facing the US with 1 in 15 Americans having allergies or asthma.”
What is the Aeroseal process?
- “The Aeroseal 6-step process takes very little time to bring you big savings and comfort:
- Wall registers are covered in order for air to escape only through the leaks
- Sealant in injected into the ducts for approximately 1 hour
- Small aerosol particles are kept suspended in the airflow by continuous air movement
- As the air stream makes a sharp turn to exit through a leak, the particles collide with and adhere to the leak edges
- Ducts are sealed with only 1-2 oz. of the sealant material remaining in the ducts
- A computer-generated analysis summarizing your home’s or building’s amount of leakage is generated, providing verification of success of the process”
“The Aeroseal process won the “Best of What’s New” award from Popular Science magazine, and the “Energy 100” award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE also rated the Aeroseal duct sealing process as one of the 23 most beneficial technologies available to American consumers that has come out since the agency was created.”
