Save on Average $600-$850 in Energy Costs

Save on Average $600-$850 in Energy CostsSave on Average $600-$850 in Energy Costs…Did you know that energy leaks could be costing Americans $5 billion every year? These are not water leaks — it’s leaks you can’t even see. Typical air duct systems, both residential and commercial, typically lose 25-40 percent of heating and cooling energy, accounting for billions added to utility bills.

But what if there was a simple mist that could seal thousands of leaks in 4 to 8 hours? What if a home owner could save on average $600 to $850 a year on his or her heating and cooling costs? Thanks to a breakthrough technology developed at the Energy Department’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, such technology exists. The Aeroseal technology is now available to thousands of home owners and business owners concerned with high utility bills and sustainable living.

Aeroseal’s airborne adhesive particles are injected into a HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) duct system. With a low cost, low labor requirement and minimal disruption to your home or building occupants. The revolutionary energy efficient technology recently won in the Home Technology category in This Old House magazine’s top 100 Best New Home Products.

“Leaky air ducts are responsible for a huge energy loss problem in America. The Aeroseal solution available for the first time to many home owners is very exciting to see,” said Thomas Baker, building technology editor for the magazine. Space heating and cooling drive residential energy demand and utility costs — it accounts for 54percent of a home’s energy consumption.

The  Aeroseal technology is injected, technicians block furnaces, fans and grilles so that the adhesive particles will be directed towards cracks, leaks, and holes. The technicians then inject the aerosolized vinyl polymer particles, of two to 20 micrometers, into a pressurized duct system. The particles stay suspended in the air stream until they reach the leaks, where they are deposited and build up at the leak edges until the leaks are sealed. Specialized software allows both the technician and customer to view the process in real time.

The real-time software also helps educate customers about the leaks. Aeroseal dealer and business owner Pat Rush, whose Clark & Rush Mechanical employs 80 people in the Sacramento area, praised both the new technology for building his customer base, in addition to the software. He said, “It makes it easier to communicate with the customer when it’s not something you’re grabbing out of thin air about energy loses.”

Aeroseal technology has won a number of other prestigious awards including the Energy 100 award from the Energy Department and The Best of What’s New award from Popular Science Magazine.
