Did you know that the average house's air duct system loses 20 to 30 percent of its cold or warm air to leaks and holes? This may be the reason why your home has rooms that can't cool down or warm up as well as other areas of the house. A leaky air duct could be to blame.
There is an innovative solution to solving this problem and it's called Aeroseal duct sealing. After just a few hours of installation, you can be enjoying better air quality, consistent heating or cooling, and lower energy bills!
Here are a few reasons why you may want to consider Aeroseal duct sealing for your home.
The biggest reason to have Aeroseal duct sealing installed is to eliminate the frustration of trying to evenly heat or cool your home because of leaks. Once the sealing is done you should experience a home that feels consistently comfortable temperature wise in every area.
For loved ones living with you who are sensitive to allergies and contaminants in the air, having Aeroseal duct sealing done can drastically reduce the amount of dust that enters your home.
Dust and pollutants easily enter leaky ducts where they travel to all parts of your home. Having your ducts sealed with Aeroseal keeps these pollutants out of your home and help reduce poor air quality.
When certain parts of your home can't get cool or warm due to leaky air ducts, your A/C and heating can get overused. It can be frustrating to try to maintain a consistent temperature throughout a home because of air duct leaks.
Exactly how much you'll save on your energy bill by having the ducts sealed depends upon the size of the house, weather changes, and other factors. However, the U.S. Department of Energy reports that Aeroseal air duct sealing saves a homeowner between $600 and $850 a year on their energy bills.
The Aeroseal sealant is made of a non-toxic material and has been used safely in hospitals, surgical centers, and government buildings. It helps inhibit mold growth and has been safety tested to be fireproof. Its main ingredient is Vinyl Acetate Polymer, a commonly applied material used in chewing gum and hairspray.
Some homeowners may detect a smell after the installation process that is similar to glue. However, this goes away on its own after a few hours.
Aeroseal comes with a guarantee to last up to ten years in residential homes. It has also been stress tested for up to 40. That means one application should last at least a decade or more, adding up in energy savings.
As you can see, Aeroseal duct sealing is a great solution for homeowners with leaky air ducts that are experiencing hot and cold spots and high energy bills.
