With its patented Duct Repair Technology, Aeroseal seals 70% to 90% of leaks using a fast and cost-effective method. Typically, a house with ducts located in the attic or crawl space wastes about 20% of heating and cooling energy through duct leaks. However, our new Aeroseal system can remotely seal these leaks, as well as those between duct joints and beyond bends and junctions.
Once leaks are sealed, conditioned air is delivered more effectively. This means that your HVAC system can also operate more efficiently. Additionally, customers will see an increase in indoor comfort because cooled or heated air is then distributed more quickly and uniformly. This promises more comfort on chilly or sweltering days, just another reason Aeroseal gets our seal of approval!
Because of Aeroseal’s innovation, O’Brien Service Company is proud to offer their exciting new technology. The cost of labor is often expensive when sealing duct leaks using conventional methods. However, Aeroseal’s fully automated process greatly improves the cost-effectiveness of this energy-efficient and money-saving retrofit.
More effective, less costly repairs? We love the sound of that, and we hope you do too!
How Does It Work?
First, our highly-trained technicians perform a rapid quality assessment of the condition of the duct system. Then, if leaks are detected, the registers and coil/fan/furnace of your HVAC system are temporarily blocked, and the Aeroseal system distributes small dry adhesive particles into pressurized ductwork.
From there, the suspended particles travel in the airflow toward the only place left to exit: cracks and leaks. As the air stream turns sharply through leaks, the particles are flung against leak walls. This allows a seal to build up, sealing leaks as large as 5/8 inch across. It does all of this without leaving excess deposits on duct surfaces, so you don’t have to worry about any buildup.
In order to maximize leak sealing, a powerful computer program optimally controls air flow, duct pressure, and particle size throughout the process. The software then enables us to print system analyses, diagnostic results, and benefits documentation on the spot, so we can review them with the homeowner during our visit.
