Aeroseal FAQ: How to Get Your Commercial Project StartedSamantha Bezich
Aeroseal’s commercial team recently kicked off an FAQ webinar series to walk through the most common questions mechanical contractors and ESCOs across the nation have about Aeroseal’s duct sealing technology. In each 30-minute discussion, Aeroseal’s April Frakes, Director of Commercial Sales, and Travis Boylan, Manager of ESCO Development, detail multiple questions to help you get projects underway seamlessly.
Our commercial duct experts walked through how to add Aeroseal to energy-saving contracts. Aeroseal’s process has been streamlined to makes it as painless as possible and meet even the tightest of schedules.
Aeroseal is an American, minority-owned business based in Dayton, Ohio. Its comprehensive duct repair and optimization services are offered through a four-phase approach. The first two phases mirror a pre-RFP ECM identification and internal risk review through RFP submission and investment-grade audit.
- Phase 1 – Audit & Evaluation: We conduct remote preliminary qualification of your project by gathering data and inspecting the site to ensure an efficient and effective project plan.
- Phase 2 – Model & Plan: This includes our investment-grade audit. Using one of our four energy models, we calculate duct leakage and provide data that can inform project energy savings models. This phase also includes any demonstrations of our technology.
Phases three and four align with a project implementation and all follow-up verification of results.
- Phase 3 – Repair, Clean, Sanitize, and Seal: After handling any repairs or cleaning needs, the Aeroseal team seals the ductwork to ensure the building’s HVAC system can operate at peak efficiency.
- Phase 4 – Measurement & Verification: Our software tracks and verifies all project work before issuing a certificate of completion.
Aeroseal duct sealing is a comprehensive solution for commercial facilities, including hospitals, schools, homes, offices, government facilities, and hotels.
“Why Should I Consider Aeroseal?”
Duct sealing can be overlooked for energy-saving projects, especially with so many other energy-saving options to consider such as LED lighting or saving water.
But leaking ductwork is the country’s top building fault, costing greater than $2.9 billion in wasted energy. In fact, ASHRAE notes 75 percent of buildings have ductwork leaking up to 35% of their air. This alone makes more than half the commercial buildings across the nation with ductwork a candidate for Aeroseal duct sealing.
When ductwork is damaged or needs repair, Aeroseal duct cleaning extends the life of the existing ductwork and avoids the high cost of having to replace a building’s ductwork system.
“What is the ROI?”
The project payback for Aeroseal depends on several variables, including geography, energy costs, and project type. But the average range is from two to seven years. And Aeroseal requires no ongoing maintenance or energy consumption.
“Does Aeroseal ONLY Seal the Ductwork?”
No. Aeroseal can completely renovate the ductwork while maximizing its efficiency. This involves cleaning, repairing, sealing, and encapsulating the ductwork.
