Aeroseal® Duct Sealing
As an Aeroseal® partner, Bob Hamilton provides a patented duct sealing technology that effectively seals leaks in duct work from the inside out. Many Kansas City area homeowners give the ducts very little thought, because they are out of sight for the most part. Leakage can result not only in a weaker stream of conditioned air being delivered into your home, but poor indoor air quality as well. Leaks in ducts mean more dirt, dust, and other contaminants can make their way into your home, resulting in contaminated air and aggravated symptoms for those who suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory conditions.
How Aeroseal® Works
The Aeroseal® process involves the use of software that makes it possible for HVAC technicians to measure leaks in the duct accurately, essentially placing the air that is escaping through leaks under pressure. Air registers are blocked off, and an approved and UL tested aerosol injected into the duct system. Essentially, the air has nowhere to escape other than through existing leaks, which causes the sealant material to be deposited in the precise location where cracks, holes, and leaks exist. The sealant (polymer particles) first adhere to the edge of the leak, then build on to each other to completely close the leak. The Aeroseal® air duct sealing technology is endorsed by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), so Kansas City homeowners can feel confident in the results and materials used in the process.
Advantages of Duct Sealing for KC Residents
Other than poor indoor air quality and the side effects mentioned above, duct sealing using Aeroseal® technology offers many advantages. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that a leak in the duct isn’t really a big deal, but it is. The fact is, leaky ducts cost homeowners in the U.S. about 30 cents for every dollar spent on heating and cooling! Ultimately, conditioned air escapes through these leaks, causing your HVAC system to work harder to heat and cool your home. This results in a shorter lifespan for your system. Duct leakage can also result in higher humidity levels indoors during summer months, which causes an entirely different set of problems.
In a nutshell, having any leaks in your ducts sealed using the Aeroseal® duct sealing system will result in significantly improved indoor air quality for you and your family, reduced energy consumption, a more comfortable home, and money savings.
