When it comes to AC repair, duct leaks are a major source of air conditioning and heating troubles in homes across the country. Even small air leaks can lead to a loss of up to 30% of the heated or cooled air passing through the ventilation system. Getting these leaks fixed is one of the most important HVAC services you can do.
That means a household paying for air that never reaches the living spaces—a massive energy waste. To combat this, a house will need to have professionals seal up the air leaks and make the ventilation system airtight once more.
The usual tools to seal ducts are mastic and metallic tapes. But Climate Mechanics LLC takes a high-tech approach to this job, using the advanced Aeroseal® method.
This thorough process delivers fantastic results. Call us today to find out more about this service and to schedule Aeroseal duct sealing in the Cherry Hill area. How can we change your indoor air quality today?
How Aeroseal Works to Restore Leaky Ducts
The standard procedure for sealing air ducts is to locate each leak and seal it from the outside either by applying a resin–based adhesive or using metallic tapes. Aeroseal does the job from the inside!
Our service professionals will attach the Aeroseal equipment to the ventilation system and send small flexible polymer particles into the ductwork. These particles naturally fly toward any spot where air is escaping. They stick to the breaches, and more particles build up.
The pressure binds the particles securely, eventually sealing up the leak. At the end, the ducts will be airtight—and we can do tests to verify the job is done.
Why Use the Aeroseal Process?
The first part of answering this question is to address why ducts need sealing in the first place. As we mentioned above, losing air from the ventilation system creates energy waste. Sealing up the ducts saves money.
But the air loss also causes a drop of air pressure throughout the ventilation system, and this affects indoor comfort. Furthermore, it can lead to unwanted pollutants entering the ducts and then in the house. Duct sealing improves comfort and air quality.
The specific reason to go to a contractor who uses Aeroseal is that it’s a faster and more thorough method to make ducts air tight once more. It takes around an hour to complete and it won’t miss any of the leaks.
The results are verifiable: we can tell right after the job if we’ve succeeded in sealing up the ventilation system breaches.
