Meeting Duct Leakage Building Specifications:

Building and energy codes, ASHRAE guidelines, LEED certification…with today’s growing concerns over energy savings and proper indoor air quality, chances are good that you’re building’s HVAC system is expected to meet a high level of performance. And when it comes to ductwork, allowable leakage specifications are getting tighter and tighter.

In a recent survey by building commissioning engineers, excessive duct leakage was identified as an overwhelming reason commissioning professionals were unable to achieve HVAC performance standards.

New Buildings: Rethinking the Sealing Process

A growing number of building engineers are now specifying aeroseal duct sealing as a routine component of all of their new construction projects. Aerosealing has proven to be less expensive than using traditional duct sealing methods – significantly reducing the man-hours required to properly seal and test the ducts.

The computerized Aeroseal system measures the current leakage rate as the sealing process is being employed, and then it generates an accurate before-and-after report highlighting the results. No need to guess whether or not you’ve met your leakage goals. No follow up TAB or retesting required.

A Proven Strategy for Leakage Specifications.

During renovation, engineers working on the 22-story Florida State Capitol building found that the entire exhaust system was never properly sealed. They used Aeroseal to reduce energy waste and quickly meet local code requirements. Engineers estimate that it cost 30% less to aeroseal the ductwork than it would have been to use traditional duct sealing methods.

Aeroseal helps buildings of all types meet building specifications.  You can view more commercial case studies here.
