Leakage and holes in HVAC ducts could cost a homeowner much more than you would expect. Letting your vents fall into disrepair could cause the conditioned air to seep through the cracks and waste the energy and cost necessary to produce it. The average older home leaks around 50% of its conditioned air, whereas new homes leak around 40%. These leaks can ultimately cost the homeowner money, as 20% of the energy consumed for their entire house seeps out of patchable holes in their HVAC vents. This waste of resources led to the invention of a new system in air duct sealing and repair, Aeroseal.
Benefits of the Aeroseal Duct Sealing System
More often than not, a duct tear is behind the walls or under the floors. It becomes extremely difficult to repair these leaks without an invasive repair that would include tearing down drywall and cleaning up a large mess. The Aeroseal system simply blocks all the exiting vents of an air duct system, and pumps particles of a special air duct sealing material through the ventilation system. The air is forced to escape through the cracks and leaks, and in doing so the particles build up on the rough edges of the tears. The continuous build-up solidifies and forms a rubbery seal. The Aeroseal method is successful in the repair of holes up to 5/8 inches in size.
The Aeroseal method can result in up to 90% reduction of leakage and always comes with a 10-year warranty from the manufacturer. Not only is the system of heating and air conditioning repair effective, it is environmentally friendly. The EPA fully endorses the Aeroseal method as an environmentally safe procedure to plug cracks in air ducts, and prevent wasted energy.
