When most of us think about ways to save on home energy use, we think about replacing light bulbs, upgrading windows or insulation. Few of us think about our ductwork. Research however, shows that in most cases, the single most effective thing you can do to reduce your home energy use is to effectively seal the leaks in your duct system.
When your ductwork leaks, air traveling from the furnace or air conditioner escapes through the hole and never make it to the areas of the home where you need it. Studies show that the average home in the U.S. today loses 20% to 40% of treated air through duct leaks – that’s a lot of wasted energy.
It’s also the primary reason behind uneven temperatures in the home. If you have rooms that never seem to get enough heat in the winter or air conditioned air in the summer, chances are, its due to leaks in your ducts.

The good news is that, with the introduction of aeroseal technology, fixing those leaks is now easier and more cost-effective than ever before. Aeroseal is safe, fast and easy. The entire job from start to finish usually takes less than a day to complete and the results are immediate.
Best of all, Aeroseal is highly effective. at sealing leaks. Unlike manual sealing with tape or mastic, Aeroseal works from inside the duct system to find and seal all the leaks – even those on the ductwork that are hidden behind walls or under insulation.
And unlike tape or mastic sealing, aeroseal duct sealing lasts a long time – most likely, for the life of your home. That means energy savings and indoor comfort you’ll enjoy year after year. Many homeowners find that aeroseal pays for itself in less than three years – that’s compared to an estimated 70-year payback for replacing windows; a 90-year energy saving payback for wall insulation.
