Do you experience hot/cold spots in your home?
Do you constantly struggle with dust?
If so, the ducts in your home may be leaky, an issue that causes conditioned air to flow in unwanted spaces. This results in the pulling of dust and allergens from inside your walls or attic into the airstream, which can be detrimental to your health.
Almost 40 percent of all the air circulating through your home can be lost due to leaks, depending on how bad they are. This heavy loss in the conditioned air often results in rooms that are difficult to heat and cool, high levels of humidity, dangerous levels of dust particles constantly floating in the air, and unreasonably high heating and cooling bills.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this tricky problem.
Introducing Aeroseal, the best way to seal leaky ducts without extensive system work.
Aeroseal is a new process (invented by the Department of Energy) that seals leaky ducts from the inside. This is done by sending heated adhesive particles throughout your home’s system. The particles find the faulty holes in your system, attach themselves to these openings, and slowly bond to create a seal. Once the system recognizes that all of the holes in your system have been closed up, the process is complete, meaning you can go back to living your normal, everyday life without having to worry about contaminated air or overly expensive bills.
Sealing your ducts helps your furnace and air conditioning equipment work more efficiently; solves comfort issues like hot or cold spots, and even reduces dust on the furniture. Aeroseal has been featured on home improvement TV shows like This Old House and Hometime.
Leaky ducts are a common problem in the state of Wisconsin, and Van’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is the only Aeroseal carrier in the northern part of the state.
