Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What can I learn from the Air Duct Diagnostic and Inspection?
A: The inspection will help determine if there are any problems with the ductwork system. The Air Duct Diagnostic will show the precise amount of leakage coming from the duct system.
Q: What savings can you expect?
A: According to government reports, air duct sealing can permit up to $850 in energy savings annually. Some homeowners can actually save around 40% on their energy bill. Aeroseal air duct certified experts have the qualifications to run a program created by the Environment Protection Agency known as “Duct Investor”. This program takes into consideration a comprehensive list of variables, allowing the homeowner to have a good idea of how much they can save.
Q: In layman’s terms, how does an Aeroseal air duct seal actually work?
A: There will be a preseal test used as a baseline to measure progress. The registers must be blocked with foam or plastic. The UL tested and approved aerosol will be injected into the system. With no other places for the sealant to go, it will find duct holes or cracks and plug up the leaks. There will be a postseal test to check for all improvements with the functionality of your ducts. A full report and certificate will be printed showing the official record of improvements.
Q: How large can the holes be in the ducts that will be sealed by the Aeroseal air duct sealing process?
A: Cracks or holes up to 5/8th of an inch can be entirely sealed during this process.
Q: Does the air duct sealing material become weak or brittle?
A: The sealing material is vinyl with a rubbery texture and will never crack or break.
Q: How long can you expect the air duct sealing material to last after it is applied?
A: Through a rigorous testing process, we have come to find it will last a minimum of 10 years without failing.
Q: Should the ducts be cleaned before initiating the air duct sealing process?
A: In most cases, this is not necessary. However, your aeroseal contractor will let you know if cleaning is necessary for your particular situation.
Q: Will the inside of the ducts be coated with the sealant?
A: Only the holes in the ducts will be sealed by the sealant, it’s designed to stick to the holes to seal them properly.
Q: Is Aeroseal air duct sealing material safe?
A: The sealant is made up of approximately 65% water before it is applied. The dried material has two chemicals known as vinyl acetate polymer (VAP) and 2-ethyl-1 hexanol (2E1H). Most of what will be left in the ducts is VAP which has been used in all types of water-based paints, hair sprays, and certain adhesives. It has also been used in chewing gum and there is no OSHA Exposure limit for this particular chemical. 2E1H also is not considered toxic by OSHA. This sealing material is considered safe through rigorous testing.
Q: Is there an odor left behind from this sealant?
A: There will be no odors left behind for the whole life of the product.
Q: Can Aeroseal improve the performance of my HVAC equipment?
A: Aeroseal will help improve the performance of your HVAC considerably by stopping all the leakage and preventing energy loss.
Q: Can I expect lower energy bills with Aeroseal air duct sealing?
A: Most homeowners should expect to see a significant reduction in energy expenses. Some homeowners report up to 40% on savings with their energy bills.
Q: Will noise from the return and supply vents be reduced with Aeroseal air duct sealing?
A: This noise typically comes from rushing air through undersized ductwork or if there is a limited amount of air flowing through the indoor coil of your HVAC system. Your local HVAC professionals can help you determine the best way to reduce noise levels.
Q: Can I expect less dust built-up in my home with Aeroseal air duct sealing?
A: When there are leaky return ducts, they will pull all sorts of dust and other indoor contaminants that will inevitably return back to the HVAC unit and they will be redistributed in your home. Aeroseal air duct sealing will reduce leakage up to 90%, ultimately reducing dust and other contaminants in your home significantly.
Q: Can I get my money back if Aeroseal air duct sealing doesn’t work? Is it guaranteed?
A: There is a 10-year warranty provided by Aeroseal when their process is used. Aeroseal air duct sealing has been endorsed by The Environmental Protection Agency and we have full confidence in this product. Of course, the warranty is for on-site seal failures and does not cover additional damage from accidents, general wear and tear, damage from rodents, or subsequent replacement of failed ducts. Even so, the number of warranty claims has been minimal.
