How Aeroseal Effectively Seals Leaky Air Ducts

Aeroseal works by following the natural flow of air through your system and out of cracks to accurately, thoroughly, and efficiently seal every leak within your ducts—even the ones you can’t easily reach or those out of sight.

After preparing your system, we pump the aerosol sealant into your ducts and allow it to find the cracks and holes in your ductwork. When the sealant passes through the hole or crack, it deposits on the edge of the opening, building up until the gap is sealed from the inside.  For more details, let’s look at our full Aeroseal treatment process:

  • Prep. First, a technician will seal all vents on your system with foam, close off access to the machinery of your HVAC to keep the sealant out of it, and create an alternative inflow for air and Aeroseal.
  • Pretest. After your system is prepped and we have an access point, we’ll connect the Aeroseal machine to your ducts via flat tubing and perform a diagnostic pretest. This lets our computers detect leakage based on the airflow during the test.
  • Seal. Once we have baseline information about airflow in your system, and we’re certain your ducts are ready for treatment, we’ll begin to inject small aerosol particles into your system. These will pass through your system until they exit at a leak, where they will adhere and work towards creating a seal. Only a small amount of sealant is necessary, even for systems with serious leaks.
  • Review. After the sealing process, our computers will generate a second analysis, showing you the side-by-side before-and-after of your ducts. This is also where we can identify any significant leaks which weren’t sealed before and work to correct problems.

Why Aeroseal?

Aeroseal offers a ton of benefits, even relative to other sealing solutions. Like other duct sealing solutions, Aeroseal can help reduce your energy bills, make temperature consistent throughout your home, and generally improve comfort.

It does this despite being less expensive and more efficient than manual duct sealing in the vast majority of cases, thanks to its ability to reach difficult leaks and the efficacy of our computerized control and analysis tools.
