Sometimes it seems as if all this blog is about is saving money, but there aren’t very many better topics out there. So not to be redundant or repetitive, but here is a completely new way that you can save: Aerosol Duct Work Sealing. Flame Hating, Cooling and Electrical recently attended the Air Conditioning Contractors of America conference where they learned all about this new technology and decided to offer it to their customers.
What’s the Big Deal?
So what is all the hype? Will technicians just spray some hair spray in ducts? Not exactly, I will not get into the nitty gritty details (if you are interested in them, there’s more information at these sites: EPB Aerosol Duct Sealing Technology and From The Lab to the Marketplace: Energy Efficient Technologies from Research at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ). To make matters simple, what this technology does do, is seal up hard to get to leaky spots (as well as the easy to get to ones).
Ducts can lose about 15% to 30% of air each year…(imagine tacking an extra 15%-30% onto your heating and cooling bills). Before aerosol duct sealing, all duct sealing had to be performed manually, and we all know that humans are not perfect. Not all technicians could spot every single leak, nor could they reach every one. Aerosol duct sealing changes that.
Why Should I Get My Ducts Sealed with Aerosol?
