Are you looking to reduce your building’s energy costs? The rules on building performance and commercial energy savings are changing and there are some important things you need to know. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, leaky ductwork is one of the biggest contributors to energy waste in U.S. buildings today and the D.O.E. now ranks duct sealing as one of the most effective things you can do to reduce your overall energy costs.

There is a simple solution to this costly problem.  You can reduce your energy consumption by sealing your commercial building’s ductwork with Aeroseal.

Duct Leaks: A Triple Threat to Energy-Savings

One reason duct sealing is so effective at saving energy costs is that it addresses not just one, but multiple sources of energy waste.
  • First, it reduces the amount of power needed to circulate air through your building’s ventilation systems. The power to operate your buildings HVAC fans representing 20-60% of your total HVAC energy usage. Independent studies have shown that even a 15% reduction in leakage can reduce fan power requirements by 40% or more – and save you thousands of dollars each month.
  • Second, it reduces energy waste when an improperly pressurized building draws unconditioned air through cracks around doors, windows and through holes in the building shell.
  • Finally, duct leakage has been linked to excessive outside air intake through the HVAC system. This unnecessary ventilation air significantly increases the cost of operating the HVAC system.
Aeroseal duct sealing is also a solution for high peak demand charges. Energy costs are reduced by increasing the efficiency of the HVAC fans which operate at full power on the hottest days and by eliminating excess ventilation loads on those peak days.

Duct Sealing: The New Low Hanging Fruit

When considering energy saving strategies for commercial buildings, it always comes down to cost savings and return-on-investment. With Aeroseal duct sealing technology, the traditional time and man-power required to effectively seal ductwork has plummeted. That has made duct sealing now one of the highest return on investment strategies building owners can make when it comes to energy savings.  Paybacks for duct sealing are typically 3 to 7 years.

A Proven Solution to High Energy Consumption in Commercial Buildings

Now that aerosol-based technology has made duct sealing so cost effective and simple to accomplish, duct sealing is quickly rising to the top of the list of strategies for building owners and facility managers looking to reduce energy costs.
