Aeroseal is a technology used to seal ductwork so that conditioned air doesn’t leak out of it. The technician performing the work will block all the air vents in your home and connect the Aeroseal machine to your ductwork. A chemical concoction is sprayed into the ductwork. Your entire ductwork will be quickly sealed in under an hour. The work is completed in just one day.
The technician performing the work will use specialized software to monitor the application of Aeroseal. The software can determine where leaks are and if they’re getting properly sealed. In the average home, up to 30% of heated and cooled air is lost out of leaky ductwork into unconditioned areas of your home.
Benefits of Aerosealing
The chemicals in Aeroseal are safe; the same chemical is used to produce bubble gum. Once your ductwork is sealed, you will see a decrease in your monthly energy bills. Your home will have better air quality as Aeroseal keeps dust, dirt, and allergens from entering the ductwork.
Having your ductwork Aerosealed can prevent your home from having hot and cold spots. Aerosealing improves safety as it prevents back-drafting of gas furnaces. It’s also long-lasting. Aeroseal has a 10-year warranty, and the spray can last for up to 40 years. Moyer’s Heating & Cooling Inc. in Prescott Valley, AZ does Aerosealing home duct sealing.
Drawbacks of Aerosealing
Aerosealing is much more expensive than having your ductwork manually sealed. It can be up to four times more expensive, so you shouldn’t choose to have your ducts sealed this way if you’re on a limited budget.
It also doesn’t seal any holes larger than five-eighths of an inch. Any holes larger than this have to be manually sealed before the ductwork is Aerosealed.
