Learning about the importance of duct sealing

I am consistently looking for ways to reduce the cost of heating and cooling.

  • I’ve figured out that temperature control adds up to approximately fifty percent of the house energy usage.

About a year ago, I read an article that gave a bunch of energy saving recommendations. According to that article, the majority of residential HVAC duct allows up to 30% of heated and cooled air to escape through gaps at the seams, awful replacement and holes. I Googled to learn the warning signs of leaky HVAC duct and realized I was living with all of them. It said that flaws in the HVAC duct can be responsible for inconsistent temperature from one room to another. I’ve noticed that the family room often feels boiling while the family room is downright chilly. There is one family room upstairs that is consistently too warm. Once I started paying attention, the especially long run times of the boiler and air conditioning and gradually changing quarterly bills had me worried. Plus, there are complications with musty aromas and an excessive amount of dust circulating in the air. I then began looking for a local Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier that offers duct sealing. Some companies deliver manual sealing. They need to locate each hole or crack and physically patch it. I found a supplier that is licensed to deliver Aeroseal HVAC duct sealing. This innovative process targets imperfections in the HVAC duct from the inside. It takes numerous hours to complete however causes no mess, disfigurement or aromas. It is guaranteed for ten years. The Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier first clogged off the supply and return registers. He then supplied pressurized air into the HVAC duct. The air was carrying adhesive polymer particles. As the air leaked from holes and gaps, those particles clung to the edges and steadily built up to form an airnarrow seal. The entire repair was guided by a ipad program that then verified the results.
