The Aeroseal Process
Forty percent or more of a building’s energy consumption is from the HVAC system. These systems leak about 30% of the air that goes through them. This is money and energy that is completely wasted.
Aeroseal duct sealing
is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed.
The technology was developed within the Indoor Environment Program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, whose IAQ scientists tested it. The research was funded by US Environmental protection agency, US dept. of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute and California Institute of Energy and Environment.
The University of California was granted initial patents in 1996 and 1999, and Aeroseal holds an exclusive license to the technology. Action Duct Cleaning is one of their exclusive service agents.
While energy savings resulting from reducing leakage vary based on climate, utility rates, and your heating and cooling system, the other goals of even temperatures in all rooms, improved indoor air quality, and reduction of odors and fumes will be achieved regardless of those conditions. In commercial building applications, Aeroseal also solves air flow and ventilation issues in addition to energy savings.
