Duct sealing technology tackles energy loss
Leaking ducts can cost homes and buildings thousands in lost energy, and create air quality problems.
The Aeroseal technology can seal ducts from the inside, reducing energy loss and air infiltration.
At the 2016 AHR Expo, Rick Papetti, product and application manager, demonstrated the award winning Aeroseal technology.
Papetti said the Aeroseal technology works from the inside of the ducts to seal ventilation shafts. It's applied as an aerosol mist that is blown into the interior of the shaft. The sealant does not coat the inside surface, but instead, accumulates primarily in and around holes and gaps in the shaft, bonding to other sealant particles until the leaks are completely sealed.
By finding and sealing leaks from the inside of the ductwork, the Aeroseal technology can quickly and easily locate and seal even the most inaccessible leaks without having to demolish walls, rip open ceilings or disrupt existing structures – a requirement of other duct sealing methods that have, for decades, made ventilation repair unfeasible in many cases, Papetti noted.
