The Overlooked Home Maintenance Tip for Winter

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 […]

Improve Air Flow Balancing with Duct Sealing

Improve Air Flow Balancing with Duct Sealing

Recently, ACHR News published an article about the importance of air flow balancing for in homes and buildings. However, air flow balancing alone is not the best solution.
If the ductwork is not properly sealed, then there will be air leaks (small holes, cracks, seams) in the ductwork that will cause conditioned air to leak out of the ductwork and not reach the desired room/space in a home or building. This duct leakage can cause the poor airflow you might […]

How to Save Energy in the Winter Months

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 […]


2 Hot Trends in the HVAC Industry

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

Spread the word about the IAQ benefits of duct sealing

The Overlooked Culprit to Poor Indoor Air Quality

Recently, ACHR News contributor Maria Taylor published an article about seven ways heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors can ensure homeowners breathe easy. The story covered a lot of good points:

Check/change your air filter regularly
Talk to homeowners about indoor air quality (IAQ) products available
Consider zoning and mini-split systems
Sizing HVAC equipment appropriately
Fixing humidity issues
Running a fan
Air sealing unconditioned spaces

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 […]
