Today’s the day…January 10th is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day. First established in Canada by the CEEA, (Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance) there isn’t a place in the world where the concerns raised by this day aren’t relevant. So if you are among the many who have resolved to spend less and save more in 2019, cutting back on a few regular expenses is a great place to start. Below is a list of 5 savings tips to help you […]
Recently, the Tysons Reporter published its Homeowners Winter Survival Guide, and it mentioned a lot of helpful information for effectively and efficiently heating homes in winter. However, it overlooked the importance of air ducts in houses. Read the Tysons article here.
When homeowners think of their homes’ heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, they typically reference thermostats, air filters, and vents/registers. However, the air ducts are what actually distributes conditioned air (heat or AC) to the desired rooms/spaces in […]
Today marked the first legit snowfall at the Aeroseal headquarters in Dayton, OH. The ground and foliage was all white this morning. Winter is here (in the Midwest) and on the way for other parts of the country.
As the winter season is approaching your region, the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment will probably be working harder. Many people might thing that means higher utility bills, but that’s not the case.
Recently, the City of Thomasville Utilities (Georgia) published […]
Just this month, ACHR News contributor Maria Taylor highlighted two hot trends in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC):
More Energy-Efficiency HVAC Equipment for Residential and Commercial Systems
Healthier Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in Homes and Buildings

Improve Energy Efficiency and IAQ with Duct Sealing.
Too many people overlook the tremendous benefits of sealing ductwork. Duct leakage is significant challenge for getting HVAC equipment to operate efficiently and maintain clean, healthy air in homes and buildings.
When air […]
With the 2018 release of the latest International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), building code adoption across the United States has been increasing at regional and local levels. Recently, Architect Magazine highlighted six cities increasing their code adoption:

2018 Year of the Duct Looming Code Changes
Stricter Codes, Tighter Duct Leakage Specifications
A key aspect of stricter codes is the amount of duct leakage that is allowed in ductwork […]
Recently announced, Ameresco and Texas A&M are working together on the university’s largest single energy reduction and modernization project. The project is anticipated to provide “a guarantee of annual energy savings to the university through 2037,” and Aeroseal duct sealing is part of it. Read about the project here.
Ameresco and Aeroseal have worked together on energy-saving projects before to use duct sealing as an energy conservation measure (ECM) in buildings.
Unfortunately, many people overlook duct sealing as a way to […]
Even though Aeroseal duct sealing technology was invented over 20 years ago, our research and development (R&D) department maintains a commitment to continuous innovation. Recently, we just added two additional patents for technology:
Methods for detection, marking and sealing leaks in pipes or ducts – View Patent Details
Methods for sealing, detection and marking leaks in structural enclosures – View Patent Details
20+ Years of Innovation
20 years ago in 1997, the Aeroseal technology was invented and HVAC contractors officially began using it […]
According to recent article in the World Property Journal, the nation’s largest cities are getting even greener. As noted in the 5th annual U.S. Green Building Adoption Index by CBRE and Maastricht University, researchers have found green certified office space across America’s 30 largest metros has reached 41% of market totals – the highest in the index’s history.
“Green” office buildings in the U.S. are defined as those that hold either an EPA ENERGY STAR label, USGBC LEED certification or […]
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 […]
The annual AHR Expo 2019 is less than two months away, and we’re looking forward to this year’s event theme: Come Experience the Future of HVACR. The latest and cutting edge tools and technology – Smart homes/buildings, intelligent HVAC, high-performance construction, duct sealing, and more – will be on display in the one place.
Check out the following AHR Expo 2019 trailer video.
Looking ahead to the live event, we’ve compiled the top 10 HVAC industry sessions at AHR Expo 2019 […]
