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.
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.
