About Aeroseal Duct Sealing

Aeroseal duct sealing provides Connecticut homeowners with an effective way to save energy and increase their home’s indoor comfort. The U.S. Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), local utility companies, and other related agencies all agree that most residential duct systems are prone to leaks. These leaks rob your household of the heated and cooled air that you pay for.

As a result, your monthly energy bills are increased and yet, you still have rooms that don’t get enough heat in the wintertime or cooled air in the summer.

Traditional duct sealing methods, such as covering the leaks with tape or mastic can help, but most ductworks are hidden behind walls, in tight attic spaces, under insulation, or other hard-to-access locations. So, for years, homeowners have no choice but to suffer with the issues caused by leaky ductwork.

To provide a solution, the U.S. Department of Energy funded studies to find an easy and cost-effective way to seal ducts effectively. The result was aeroseal technology, a computerized sealing system that seals leaks from the inside of the ducts.

How It Works

Call the Aeroseal experts at CENTRAL AIR, LLC. They will then come to your home to inspect your ductwork. They may pretest your system to show you how much leakage you have and then approximate how much savings you’ll get by Aerosealing your ducts.

After receiving the green light to proceed, they will attach a long flexible tube from their Aeroseal equipment to a temporary hole cut into the ductwork. After that, a mist of microscopic particles of sealant is than blown into the duct system’s interior.

Please note that the sealant doesn’t completely coat the interior of the ductwork but instead, it stays suspended in the air until it comes in contact with a leak. Here, it clings to the edge of the leak and then to other sealant particles until the entire leak is sealed.

You can view the effects of the Aeroseal process on a computer monitor. Also, you can watch a graph that shows the current leakage rate drop further and further as the leaks are being sealed. At the end of the process, you receive a computer-generated report that shows the before and after results.

More importantly, you’ll feel the results. Don’t be surprised by the amount of air you feel coming out of your vents – or how much less your furnace and air conditioner need to work to keep your home comfortable.

Does a family member suffer from indoor allergies? Do you find you need to dust more often than what’s necessary? Aerosealing your ductwork can be the answer here as well. Duct work leaks can suck in air from behind wall cavities, storage spaces, and other locations where the air quality is less than optimal. Once in the ductwork, the contaminants are then spread throughout the entire house.

By sealing all the leaks – even those hidden from view – you can stop the spread of contaminants that affect your family’s health. Contact us in Brookfield, Connecticut for more information about Aeroseal duct sealing technology.
