10 Issues Why HVAC Equipment Does Not Perform as Advertised

Back in 2012, the National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) published top ten reasons building HVAC systems do not perform as intended. Here’s a reprint of the ten issues according to NEBB: Issue #1: Ductwork is not reinforced for the proper SMACNA pressure classifications. Issue #2: Failure to adequately seal ducts. Issue #3: Failure to understand the need to seal return and exhaust ducts. Issue #4: Failure to adequately pressure test ductwork to prove that duct sealing is effective. Issue #5: Failure to understand SMACNA […]
Alexandra Hospital Ingersoll Aeroseal Project

Alexandra Hospital Meets Codes, Saves Energy with Duct Sealing

When administrators at Alexandra Hospital received testing and balancing (TAB) reports indicating that the building’s HVAC system was not providing sufficient rates of air exchange, they called in Nerva Duct Sealing for recommendations. With duct leakage at the heart of the problem, Nerva found options limited: either upgrade the entire system or manually seal the ductwork. Both operations were prohibitively expensive and disruptive. With much of the ductwork hidden behind walls and covered in insulation, the cost of manual […]

Aeroseal Duct Sealant Certified Low VOC Compliant with LEED V4

DUCTSEAL, the aerosol sealant used during the Aeroseal duct sealing process, has been certified compliant for low volatile organic chemical (VOC) emissions in accordance with the latest LEED standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council. Third-party testing by Berkeley Analytical concluded that the sealant tested below the lowest VOC concentration range of £0.5 mg/m3 for the presence of formaldehyde and other targeted VOCs. This certification confirms that Aeroseal duct sealing meets USGBC LEED v4 standards for low VOC coatings and […]
Ductwork

Ductwork VS Duct Work: What’s the Difference?

When referring to the ventilation aspect of HVAC, do you say “ductwork” or “duct work”? Word differences like this one might seem trivial to one. They might also be educational to another. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, ductwork (one word) means “ducting” or “a system of ducts.” A duct (as a noun) is defined as “a pipe, tube, or channel that conveys a substance.” Duct work (two words) is more appropriately used to describe work performed on ducts. Aire Serv has […]
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.
