Furnace manufactures like Bryant have created higher efficiency central heating and cooling systems to save energy dollars and provide more comfort to their customers. There is a limit to how much energy efficiency you can squeeze out of a furnace.
In recent years, the quest for saving energy dollars has focused on the air distribution system within the home. Your duct work carries the warm and cool air to the rooms. Traditional these ducts have been seal with tape and clamps. Over 90% of existing buildings in North America have air duct systems that contain small holes and cracks that increase heating and cooling costs. These leaks result in higher energy costs as more air, hot or cool, are need to reach the desired temperature.
How does it work?
A new technology, Aeroseal, now allows us to measure and fix the duct leakage in your home. A computer test will tell exactly how much air is being lost in the ductwork. Many people are surprised to learn that homes typically leak 30% to 40% or more of their air through air duct leaks.
With the Aeroseal process, we send polymer particles under pressure throughout your air duct system. These polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed. No particles are stuck to the inside of the duct work, only the holes and leaks. This process is perfectly safe. The process has tested to last over 10 years without failure.
What are the Results?
The Aeroseal air duct sealing system can reduce the amount of leakage by as much as 90%. A series of government reports have shown that air duct sealing can lead to up to $850 in energy savings per year. With the ductwork leaks plugged, your system uses less energy to produce your desired temperature.
