Celebrating Aeroseal’s 12th Anniversary: The Story So FarSamantha Bezich
In 1993, scientist Dr. Mark Modera invented the Aeroseal technology in his garage. A system that seals leaks from the inside by sending pressurized sealant into a home or building’s ductwork to seal leaks and achieve energy efficiency.
In 2010, the company was created by Amit Gupta, Aeroseal’s CEO today. This was when the technology began to take flight in its mission, and since then, it has been considered during building processes worldwide.
Aeroseal’s story started with a problem. Most of the homes in which we live, and the buildings we work in, have air ducts that leak air. A lot of air. For the majority of the modern building era, this was considered a common problem and one that contractors and homeowners just accepted.
Until it wasn’t.
Aeroseal helps contractors and homeowners learn that leaky ducts affect lives in many ways, including:
- Bringing pollutants into a shared space
- Shortening an HVAC’s equipment lifespan
- Increased energy bills and usage
And that’s just a few. There is a long list of ways leaky ducts can influence one’s quality of life, and Aeroseal can help negatively.
A lot has happened over the past 12 years. Through all the testing and applications, Aeroseal is the technology it is today, sealing homes and buildings in several countries. And as the company has grown, so has an awareness of the issue.
The world generates 22.1 million metric tons (gigatons) of carbon dioxide every year. Homes and buildings are one of the largest sources of these annual carbon emissions. Aeroseal’s mission is to cut carbon emissions by one gigaton annually, which is the size of about 134 million U.S. households.
Here’s to a better, more energy-efficient future!
