There’s a technology called Aeroseal duct sealant that seals your ducts from the inside. This technology is used because walls, pipes and other barriers prevent technicians from reaching all of your home’s ductwork.
How Aeroseal Duct Sealant Works
The technician uses a device that sprays a non-toxic solution throughout your home’s ductwork. The solution binds over holes, sealing them off. It only builds up in areas of your ductwork where it’s needed. Aeroseal duct sealant is much less labor-intensive than the traditional way of sealing ducts. It can reach parts of your ductwork where it’s otherwise inaccessible. The technician doesn’t have to make holes in your walls and ceilings to reach hidden ducts.
Who Invented Aeroseal?
In the 1980s, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy saw the need for a technology that would seal ducts from the inside. Leaky ducts waste energy and cause indoor air quality problems. The two federal agencies sponsored research that led to the creation of Aeroseal. It’s been used since 1999. 1st Choice Mechanical LLC of Peoria, AZ, uses Aeroseal duct sealant to seal ducts in customers’ homes. We’ve been helping people for more than 20 years.
What Are the Benefits of Sealing Ducts?
Having your ducts sealed will save up to 20% on your energy bills as you don’t lose conditioned air in uninsulated spaces. It also improves your indoor air quality as dust, dirt and other contaminants enter your ductwork through holes. It can also prevent carbon monoxide from being sucked into the ductwork and spread throughout your home.
