DOE on Aeroseal Saving Energy Dollars
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, using the Aeroseal duct sealing process is one of your best solutions to higher energy bills. Duct leakage can more than double fan energy use, and, depending upon your building, also increase heating and cooling energy use significantly. 25% leakage in a supply duct system increases the amount of air that needs to be moved by 33%, which increases fan energy use by 98%. Your energy savings potential is magnified by the fact that any excess flow due to leakage also translates into the need to heat or cool that excess air flow.
You can be losing up to 30% of your energy dollars from the small cracks and holes in your duct work distribution system. Unfortunately because this duct work is hidden behind your walls and ceiling, you cannot see the lost of these energy dollars.
Aeroseal Saves on Energy Dollars?
A series of government reports have shown that air duct sealing can lead to up to $850 in energy savings per year. Some homeowners have saved up to 40% on their energy bill. Naturally, exact savings are difficult to estimate precisely since they depend on variables such as your weather, house condition,design,size, your heating and air conditioning system, system usage – as well as other factors like energy prices.
