Did you know 20-30% of the air that’s supposed to blow through your vents is escaping through cracks and holes in your air ducts? You could be wastefully heating and cooling areas like your attic, crawl space, and even behind walls.
Not only that, dust, debris, and allergens are being sucked in and blasted all over your house. Yuck!
This is why your bedroom is freezing, your coffee table is always dusty, and your energy bill is through the roof.
Pollutants from unconditioned spaces get sucked into your ducts leaving you with lots of dust and poor air quality. Sealing air return ducts is important to you and your family’s health and well-being. The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology estimates that 50% of all illnesses are caused by poor indoor air quality (IAQ). The EPA lists indoor pollution as one of the top five environmental risks to public health, causing 8.5 million deaths each year.
Leaky return ducts will result in having:
Most people assume that furnace filters are enough to collect the average amount of dust being circulated inside their home, but a leaky return will cause you to replace filters at a faster rate and if left in too long can put strain on your system. An unsealed air return duct system not only sucks in dirt, dust, allergens, smelly odors, and other pollutants from attics, crawlspaces, and interior walls, but it also brings in humidity from those very same spaces. The introduction of humidity into the ductwork causes comfort issues, and can also lead to mold growth. Sealing your return ducts eliminates the threat of moisture and mold as well as block out all those pollutants from being introduced into your home and being recycled over and over again every day.
Sealing your ductwork with Aeroseal increases your home’s indoor air quality, helping to eliminate dust, allergens, and odors coming inside from unconditioned spaces.
Sealing your ducts is the best way to achieve maximum efficiency from your equipment. Sealing and insulating your ducts increases system efficiency, lowers your energy bills, and can often pay for itself in energy savings. Plus, if you’re planning to install new heating and cooling equipment, a well designed and sealed duct system may allow you to downsize to a smaller, less costly heating and cooling system that will provide better dehumidification.
With Aeroseal, you can put that hard earned money back in your pocket. The U.S. Department of Energy reports the typical home may lose from 25 to 40% of its conditioned air due to leaky ducts. As a result, your furnace or AC unit works harder and longer, consumes much more energy, and wears out sooner. For you, this means sky-high utility bills and a shortened system life. The good news is, our simple and easy solution can save you money by saving you energy.
Aeroseal improves comfort in your home immediately, removing “dead zones”, and evening out temperatures in EVERY room and balancing air flow and humidity, so you can truly get the most out of your furnace, air conditioner and any smart thermostat and climate control technology.
Sealing your leaky ducts will result in:
Aeroseal allows the HVAC systems to properly heat and cool homes by delivering conditioned air where it is wanted, providing consistently even temperatures in every room of your home.
Another benefit of Aeroseal is by sealing your ducts you eliminate those stuffy upstairs rooms that are so uncomfortable in the warmer months because the conditioned air isn’t reaching them.
Sealing your ducts dramatically increases the amount of airflow coming out of your vents, ensuring maximum conditioned air from your system as it should be.
