The air ducts in your HVAC system in Lake Forest, IL, expand and contract as the system works to control the temperature in your home. The strain this action places on your air ducts may eventually cause them to develop leaks. There are several benefits of using Aeroseal duct sealing to help seal and protect your system against leaks.
1. Comfort Improves with Aeroseal
Leaks in your air ducts will rob your home of the air your HVAC system uses to condition your home. Air duct leaks are often the problem when one or more rooms in your home aren’t as comfortable as others. Sealing these leaks will preserve comfort throughout your home by ensuring air from the HVAC system circulates evenly.
2. Air Quality
There will always be dust, pollen and other particles in the air you breathe. This problem becomes much worse and can begin to affect the health of family members with asthma or allergy problems when dirt and debris find its way into your air ducts. Well-sealed air ducts will prevent these particles from becoming part of the air that circulates in your home.
3. Energy Efficiency Improves with Aeroseal
Your HVAC system will work harder to heat or cool a space when a leak prevents all the air it conditions to reach the desired location. This increased workload will increase your energy costs and shorten the lifespan of the HVAC system. Duct sealing can reduce energy costs by as much as 30%.
You’ll find the main ingredient in Aeroseal, vinyl acetate polymer, in chewing gum and hairspray. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration deems the substance both safe and non-toxic. Aeroseal also meets the safety certification standards of the Underwriters League.
