Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems typically leak 30% of the air that goes through them, wasting a ton of energy and significantly affecting how well your heating and air conditioning work throughout your home, office building, school or other facility. Aeroseal duct sealing typically reduces your HVAC energy bill by 20 to 40%, and addresses many common issues:
- Hot or cold spots or rooms that don’t get warm or cool enough when your HVAC system is running
- High utility bills
- Poor indoor air quality (IAQ), heightened allergy symptoms or sick building syndrome (literally when indoor air issues make people sick). According to the NIH, studies show that improvement of IAQ increases office productivity and school learning significantly, while decreasing the risk of allergic symptoms and asthma in homes.
- Failed specifications for duct tightness in commercial buildings
In a recent survey, over 74% of commissioning professionals agreed that buildings have significant duct leakage.
