Why You Need Aerosol With Rising Energy Cost
With the cost of heating and cooling increasing rapidly, you would never leave a door or window of your Carver home open, allowing it to waste energy. However, you could be losing a massive amount of your heated and cooled air and money from air leaks in your home’s ductwork. Experts estimate that the average house loses from 25 to 40% of its heated and cooled air through leaks. But there is a simple and cost-effective solution called Aeroseal.
Locating The Air Gaps
Picture the ductwork in your Afton home. It is made up of piece after piece of metal tubing and fittings that slide together but do not create an airtight seal. This system is cost-effective and easy to install, but it is not environmentally conscious when considering how much heated and cooled air is allowed to escape from the joints throughout your home. At each joint in the duct, a little more heated or cooled air is lost, creating additional temperature control issues around your home.
Why Is One Part Of The House Always Too Warm Or Cold?
If you have noticed that the rooms close to your furnace or air conditioner are always more comfortable than those located at the far end of the house, duct air leaks are likely the issue. The heated and cool rooms first are sure to remain at your ideal temperature. But as more air leaks out of the ducts, the rooms further away are not being cooled or heated to the same perfect temperature. In some cases, you just live with it. But in more often used rooms, it could result in you resetting the thermostat and spending even more to heat and cool those distant rooms to your perfect comfort level. In short, the leaking ducts cause you to waste more energy and money.
The Perfect Solution
Aeroseal is applied to the inside of your home’s duct system to locate and seal all the air leaks that are wasting your warmed or cooled air and money. Even better, the process can be completed in just a few hours and instantly begin to provide a return on your investment. In addition, the material is non-toxic and water-based, so there are no safety concerns. Finally, our pros show you before and after test results of the ductwork and provide a certificate of completion of this cost-saving addition to your home.
The Proof Is In The Testing
Our pros block all the vents and registers in your home to pressurize the duct system to begin the process. The HVAC equipment is also blocked off to ensure that the sealant does not enter and damage these expensive components. With the system pressurized, we log the pre-test results. Next, the Aeroseal material is applied, then run a final test to show you the vast improvement in the airtightness of your home’s ductwork.
