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 […]
Amidst all of the new construction growth, the New York Times (NYT) recently published an interesting story about San Francisco’s ambitions for tighter building codes to make withstand earthquakes better. The overall goal of the city is shifting from just keeping people to safe to allowing people to return to a building after it gets impacted by an earthquake. Read the full story here.
This NYT story is just one example of the tighter building codes looming throughout the United […]
Are you a football/soccer fan? The European partner for Aeroseal Mez-Technik is doing demonstrations of the duct sealing technology in the Frankfurt football stadium with Helios and Luftmeister in front of 50 ventilation consultants all over Germany!
Stay tuned for more information about this exciting project!
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, […]
One of our dealers Aeroseal Red River Valley (Aeroseal RRV) just finished a duct sealing job for a homeowner in North Dakota, and it was a tremendous success!
We sat down with Taylor Riedemann, the Comfort Advisor for Aeroseal RRV, to gather thoughts about this happy homeowner’s story. Read the full story below:
Hot flashes. And then those turned into moments of total freezing.
This was happening in my house. I would be in Finley or Simon’s room – and it […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Lend Lease was on a mission: To get 3,600 new and existing homes in the Fort Drum Mountain Community ENERGY STAR® certified. To do so, they knew they had to reduce duct system leakage of each home from an average of 20-30% down to 5% or less. After several attempts with various methods of duct sealing, they found only one thing worked – Aeroseal. Today, the Fort Drum Mountain Community is the largest New York ENERGY STAR (NYSERDA) certified […]
When one of the industry’s most respected facility services providers was asked to make energy-efficient upgrades to a correctional facility (prison) in Pennsylvania, it had two key issues in mind. First, the services provider knew that the facility would be occupied during renovation, so limiting disruptions and health risks to the occupants was essential. Secondly, working as an ESCO, the company also knew it had to deliver on promised energy savings or face paying the difference out of its […]
