Duct Cleaning & Sealing with Aeroseal
Staying healthy and comfortable at home in the Harrisonburg, VA area this summer is simpler with comprehensive duct cleaning and Aeroseal duct sealing.
How Ductwork Affects Indoor Air Quality
If you have a central forced air conditioner at home, you have ductwork that weaves throughout your walls and ceilings delivering cooled air to each room or area. Unfortunately, since ducts have twists and turns, they consist of multiple parts which can sometimes disconnect. In addition, small cracks or gaps can appear over time and with drastic temperature variations.
When a duct is no longer properly intact, the conditioned air inside it is exposed to particles that are in your home’s unconditioned areas like walls, ceilings, attic, and even basement. Indoor air pollutants, like dust, mold spores, pet dander, and pollen, will then circulate throughout your entire home, affecting the air you breathe. Over time ducts can also build up with dust and other contaminants further affecting indoor air quality for you and your family.
Aeroseal Duct Sealing for Increased Energy Efficiency
Sealing your ducts will not only help to improve indoor air quality by preventing contaminants from unconditioned areas of your home from entering, but it will also increase energy efficiency. Aeroseal is a unique method for sealing your ducts from the inside. This patented technology puts escaping air under pressure which causes polymer particles to stick together and seal every leak — from the largest to the tiniest.
After properly sealing all gaps and cracks, you’ll experience greater comfort throughout the cooling and heating seasons, reduce allergens which can lead to asthma and other respiratory symptoms, and lower your monthly energy bills. By sealing your ductwork, you may even see a reduction in your bills by up to 40%!
