Air duct sealing can greatly impact the quality of air within your home. In fact, dirty and leaking ducts can spew allergens, mold spores, dust, and other common irritants into your home. Unfortunately, without properly sealed ducts, HVAC maintenance, and air duct cleaning, you and your family might begin to suffer from increased allergies and other medical conditions. The good news is that an expert technician can clean your ducts, improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, and provide duct sealing all in one visit.

What Is AeroSeal Duct Sealing?

AeroSeal is a cost-effective duct sealing solution that can resolve leaking ducts. It is designed to enhance the comfort of your home, improve the quality of your air, and produce energy savings that you can enjoy throughout the entire year, especially during the cold Minnesota winters. Without AeroSeal, your home could lose up to 40 percent of the energy that is produced by its HVAC system. The latter energy escapes through leaky ducts. The good news is that a technician from Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning will use AeroSeal duct sealing to effectively eliminate leaks. With air-tight ducts, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard, which means that it will last longer, your home will stay more comfortable, you can reduce your environmental footprint, and you can lower your utility costs throughout the year.

What Happens When Your Home’s Air Ducts Are Sealed?

The technician will complete a few key steps as part of your home’s air duct sealing process. These steps include:

  • Covering your wall registers to identify where the ducts are leaking
  • Conducting a pre-test to analyze and verify the location and size of the leak
  • Injecting the AeroSeal sealant into the ducts (as needed). This process can take approximately an hour, however the exact length of time will depend on the size of your home and the number of leaking ducts
  • The AeroSeal polymers will adhere to the edges of the leak. They will form an effective barrier that resolves the leak
  • Performing a computer analysis after the work is complete to verify that the process has been successful
