If you’re the kind of homeowner that feels pretty handy with a screwdriver and a caulking gun, you’ve probably already tackled a lot of home performance projects designed to reduce home energy consumption and lower your monthly utility bill. But now that the programmable thermostat has been set, and you’ve switched out all your light bulbs to energy-efficient LEDs, what about taking care of those duct leaks?

The Nose Knows About Aeroseal

When decomposed bodies are found in Monterey County, Ohio, they wind up at the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab for autopsy. And for years, occupants of the three-story facility knew whenever a new body arrived because the strong smell of the rotting corpses would permeate the building. Despite spending hundreds of thousands of dollars over a period of years trying to solve the problem, nothing seemed to work. Replacing the HVAC system didn’t work. Installing high efficiency fans didn’t […]

Cambridge Housing Authority Turns To Duct Sealing with Aeroseal

I recently learned about a construction project that proves once again that aeroseal duct sealing technology is not only for retrofits. In fact, a growing number of engineers are specifying aerosol-based duct sealing right from the get-go for both new construction and upgrades. Word is starting to spread that aerosealing is quicker, less labor intensive and usually less expensive than manual sealing – especially if you’re trying to meet today’s tighter building codes. I’ve spoken to more than one […]

The Winter of 2015

On the first day of spring I have to share a quick Aeroseal story from one East Coast survivor of the Winter of 2015.
I just got off the phone with Art A. a homeowner that lives in a 150-unit gated community in Armonk, CT. His house is just a few years old, is considered upscale by most anyone’s standards, was built by one of the highest-rated developers in the U.S. but, as it turns out, still had significant duct […]

Maryland Elementary School Improves HVAC Equipment Performance with Duct Sealing

When the new $60 million dollar elementary school first opened its doors, everyone was excited and pleased. The modern classrooms and energy efficient building were sources of pride and joy for the Maryland-area school district. However, it wasn’t far into the first winter season that school administrators recognized there was a real problem.
“The new building was designed with an energy-efficient heating system that wasn’t delivering as it should,” said Ted Thornton, project manager at Coakley & Williams Construction. “We […]
