Are you paying too much to heat your home or to keep it cool? If you haven’t had your air ducts sealed, it’s almost guaranteed that you are. In fact, studies show that most people spend nearly 50% of their energy bill on heating and cooling costs. If you could lower these costs, then, you could lower your bill significantly!
Leaky air ducts account for a huge energy and money saving opportunity. Typical systems in homes and commercial buildings have ducts in the attic, which means that they lose from 25% to 40% of their heating or cooling energy. A study from McKinsey & Company says that sealing air ducts is the single most valuable thing that home and business owners can do to save energy and, therefore, save money. This could be worth as much as $25 billion dollars per year nationwide, and that’s just in residential homes.
When you seal your air ducts with Aeroseal, you plug up any small holes or other openings in the duct that let your hot or cold air escape before it heats or cools your house. By doing this, you keep more of your hot air inside in the winter and your cold air in during the summer. Your comfort systems don’t have to work as hard, you don’t use as much energy, and you don’t spend as much money.
How Does It Work?
Aeroseal works by closing off the holes in your ducts from the inside. We will prep your system, then attach our Aeroseal machine to it. We’ll blow tiny amounts of a sticky polymer through the system. This polymer adheres to the edges of your duct holes, then adheres to itself until the hole is sealed. Once sealed, the polymer hardens and can last for up to 10 years or more.
With this polymer in place, there’s nowhere for your hot or cold air to go except into your home to heat or cool it. Since that air isn’t escaping, you are heating or cooling yourself instead of the outside! You’ll spend less on energy costs and you also may not have to replace your heater or air conditioner as frequently, because they won’t be overworked and so will be likely to last longer. Over time, this can add up to a huge savings, just for sealing off your air ducts.
Call us today and we’ll send out an Aeroseal expert to evaluate your home. Our expert will assess your air ducts and determine how much air you’re losing through them. If you choose to do the Aeroseal process, we’ll assess your ducts afterward, too. You may be surprised at just how much change we find and at how you feel that change when you’re more comfortable inside.
We would love to help you save money, save energy, and stay comfortable. Get the process started today by making a simple phone call. It may be easy, but it could change your life! We hope to hear from you soon!
