The #1 energy loss in homes.

The #1 energy loss in homes.

  

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, air duct leakage is the #1 home energy loss.  Great strides have been made in insulating walls, window quality and furnace efficiency.  But because it is mostly behind the walls, air duct leakage has largely been ignored as there was no reasonable way to address the problem.

Aeroseal manufactures an aerosol sealant which is sprayed into your ductwork to seal ductwork leaks from the inside.  Safe and non-toxic, Aeroseal has actually been shown to enhance indoor air quality.  Improved delivery of conditioned air means rooms that were hard to keep warm in the winter/cool in the summer are usually more comfortable.  With more of the air you paid to heat or cool reaching the registers, you may find yourself actually lowering the thermostat.  Another benefit can be noise reduction-with the furnace and/or air conditioner running less.

According to Aeroseal, it may cost $1,200 to $1,500 to seal the average home's ductwork with their product.  According to the manufacturer, that makes the energy efficiency payback much quicker than, say, upgrading your windows or high-performance exterior wall insulation.
