In the past, when homeowners experienced
symptoms of leaky ductwork including;
Their only option for sealing ductwork was hand
sealing, which is a combination of applying mastic
(a putty-like substance) which hardens and seals
ductwork, along with metal adhesive tape. But
hand sealing has two major drawbacks. It is dependent
upon access, which means if a technician can’t reach
the ductwork, it can’t be sealed. And because of excessive temperatures in attics, the adhesive on the metal tape will break down over time, leaving the cracks in your ductwork re-exposed.
Seeing a need for a change, in the late 90’s a new technology was created called Aeroseal. This revolutionary product works from inside the ductwork to seal leaks making it easy to administer and highly effective at sealing all leaks, including those hidden behind walls or under insulation. Aeroseal is made of a non-toxic polymer and can reduce the amount of leakage in your home by as much as 90%, reducing dust and other indoor air pollutants from the conditioned air in your home.
During the Aeroseal process, your home ventilation system is pressurized and non-toxic polymer particles are released into the ventilation system. The pressurized air escapes through any available openings, and the polymer particles are drawn toward these holes, where they adhere to them and build up until the leak is completely sealed. To make sure the process works, a computer monitors the internal pressure of the ducts before the sealant is applied and throughout the process until it detects that any leaks in the system have been sealed. When the process is complete all leaks, including many you may not have known about, will be sealed.
