Trane Adds Aeroseal to U.S. Communities ESCO ContractBilly Pell
Earlier this year, the HVAC and energy savings performance contracting company Trane added Aeroseal as a line item to the U.S. Communities Trane contract for energy services companies (ESCOs). This “partnership” of sorts is great news for public entities interest in saving energy by sealing ductwork air leakage with Aeroseal duct sealing. Learn more about the Trane contract here.
Many people often overlook the energy savings achieved from sealing ductwork in buildings. When you want to save energy, it’s typical to first consider replacing lights, HVAC equipment, insulation, etc.
Beyond the obvious items, there are more energy savings being left on the table due to one big, often overlooked problem: duct leakage. We work with ESCOs on projects nationwide, saving energy by sealing duct leakage.
What is duct leakage? Basically, it’s holes (big and small) in ductwork that causes airflow from an air conditioning unit or furnace to leak from the ductwork before it reaches the intended locations/rooms in a home or building.
According to ASHRAE, 75% of buildings have duct leakage. Aeroseal duct sealing is proven to be the most effective and efficient way to fix duct leakage by sealing ductwork. It’s the only sealing method that uses a computerized process and seals leaks from the inside of the duct system.
How Aeroseal Works
It can be somewhat hard to understand at first how Aeroseal works. The process of Aeroseal can be summed up in three simple steps:
- Connect the Aeroseal system to your building’s HVAC system.
- Seal the ductwork (the computer-controlled technology does it for you).
- Certify energy-saving results (a certificate is published for each project)
Check out the following video that walks through an example of a commercial Aeroseal duct sealing job.

Capitalize on Overlooked Energy Savings for Buildings
Energy efficiency and savings is definitely trending. As we push for more, the overlooked energy savings for buildings becomes more important…beyond the lights, HVAC, insulation. Energy conservation measures (ECM) like duct sealing make up the lesser known but extremely valuable energy-saving opportunities for facilities.
