Aeroseal Duct Sealing Technology | NJ Indoor Air Quality
Did you know that the average American home loses 20-30% of its conditioned air through leaks in its duct system? According to the energystar.gov, “A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient, and safer.”
Since about half of all our utility expenses go towards our heating and air conditioning systems, it is important to make these operations as efficient as possible. Besides wasting money and putting unnecessary strain on your HVAC system, leaky air ducts also contribute to poor indoor air quality.
Your duct system is designed to carry air to and from your forced-air heating and cooling system, but when there are leaks, holes, and loose connections, all that precious air is getting wasted.
While some homeowners opt to do DIY duct sealing, it is much more effective to have a professional do it for you. Needless to say, there are some areas of your ductwork that cannot be accessed, which is why Gold Medal Service is proud to offer Aerosol technology for sealing your air ducts.
What is Aeroseal Duct Sealing?
Aeroseal technology allows you to seal your air ducts from the inside out. The research was funded by US Environmental Protection Agency, US Dept. of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute and California Institute of Energy Efficiency (Aeroseal).
Aeroseal is designed to help you maintain a comfortable temperature in your home while providing relief on your heating and cooling system by conducting a comprehensive duct system diagnostic test:
- Duct Leakage Analysis – let's you know what percentage of your air is lost to leaks.
- Register Temperature Test – compares the temperatures of the air coming out of your registers in all rooms of your home.
- Room Airflow Test – measures incoming air supply.
- Return Air Performance Test – determines if your heating and air conditioning system has the right size air grills.
- Combustion Safety Test – tests if any air is sucked back into the home through your fireplace and/or HVAC system.
