Trane + U.S. Communities + Aeroseal

Trane Adds Aeroseal to U.S. Communities ESCO Contract

Earlier this year, the HVAC and energy savings performance contracting company Trane added Aeroseal as a line item to the U.S. Communities Trane contract for energy services companies (ESCOs). This “partnership” of sorts is great news for public entities interest in saving energy by sealing ductwork air leakage with Aeroseal duct sealing. Learn more about the Trane contract here.

Abu Dhabi-Based Arzanah Medical Complex Meets Codes Thanks to Duct Sealing

The multi-billion dollar Arzanah medical complex in Abu Dhabi was nearing completion and stood ready to take its place as yet another shining example of the global leadership emanating from the United Arab Emirates. So it was with deep concern that engineers reviewed traverse readings taken from several of the structure’s HVAC risers that indicated leaks were robbing the facilities of half of the air traveling through the ductwork. Not only was this unacceptable from a building code perspective, […]

University of Miami (Florida) Uses Aeroseal

University of Miami (Florida) Meets Safety Codes Using Duct Sealing

The University of Miami’s Cox science building was undergoing partial renovation. After testing dozens of fume hoods located in laboratories throughout the four-story building, the school’s environmental health and safety group found that many of the hoods were not providing sufficient exhaust. The reason: leaks in the connecting ducts and ventilation shafts.
Traditional duct sealing methods would have required a near demolition of the 50-year-old building. Instead, the duct sealing crew at AirMax Service Corporation used aeroseal duct sealing to […]

Pensacola Christian College Fixes Ventilation Problems with Duct Sealing

In the coastal town of Pensacola, Florida, the key to fighting humidity and excessive moisture is ensuring proper building ventilation. So when administrators at Pensacola Christian College decided to renovate Campus House, the college’s 3-story dormitory, they knew they needed to get proper exhaust levels from the 30 risers leading from the buildings’ various bathrooms up to the attic. As it turned out, leaks in the ductwork were making it impossible for the large attic fans to draw sufficient […]

Nemours Children’s Clinic Halts Spread of Airborne Infections with Duct Sealing

There had been so many retrofits and extensions added to the ventilation system at Nemours Children’s Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida that engineers weren’t sure where their airflow problems were coming from. What they did know was that negative pressure and inadequate ventilation throughout the 30+-year-old building could support the spread of nosocomial infections. Their first steps in taking control of the situation was to seal the leaks in the exhaust shafts located on each floor and then seal the […]
