T&C Belvin: aeroseal,,,does the ducks need cleaning first?
Adam Tellez: I have done more than 100 Aeroseals in different homes, bottom line is if ran properly, professionally this will work with any many types of Ducts, will improve indoor air quality, reduce system run time, save $
Hoons54: Will this work on ductwork with insulation already applied? I'd imagine it can't find the holes as efficiently if mineral fiber is wrapped while it is pressurized.
Christopher Gruenwald: That's a good start, but the bigger problem is fiberglass insulation. You can heat a spray foam insulated home for practically nothing.
Keyzer4: Another novel idea that people are liking these days is putting your ductwork inside your conditioned space! wow! My delta T suddenly isn't close to 100 degrees! Not so hot for retrofits, though.
Also, "Duct Tape" Doesn't work on ducts. You need to use mastic or butyl backed tape. That doesn't help if you don't have access to the ducts, though. But then, if you don't have access to them, they're probably inside your envelope. Mastic is a few bucks & you can apply it yourself. Aeorseal is... not a few bucks.
edit: don't forget to prioritize those return ducts, though. you don't want any backdrafting. it can kill ya.
TheTread123: I can see where this product is useful in condominiums where in the typical room there is no return air vent. Also will reveal shoddy insulation work in closets that adjacent to outside walls.
David Jones: Does this work on flex duct systems?? Please let me know.. I am in south Florida and most systems are 90% flex.. Thanks for your help.
Adam McClusky: terrific explanation
Joseph Reynolds: Yes , Michael you completely isolate the HVAC unit. Aeroseal allows the option to seal both return and supply ducts simultaneously.
Joseph Reynolds: Mark,
It may sound like one , but as a lead technician @ Aeroseal of the Lowcountry the process WORKS!!!! We not only test the system but give proof what improvements.
Mark Morrell: Typical infoscamercial...blind em with science and tech talk and then come with the pitch.
Michael Madrigal: when using aerolseal do you have to isolate the return and supply from the fau and indoor
coil so there are no external static pressure added the rated furnace/ coil.
arm mel: I would like to know what AC company acboy100 owns, so I know who not to recommend. Those type of comments really shows people the kind of people you are letting in your home. Scary to think about! Just saying
John Porterfield: Simple tests often pinpoint a problem that "a bucket of (mastic) sealant" will inexpensively remedy. Duct problems often account for 35% of heating energy use, however video overstates duct leakage to outdoors, one of five common duct defects. More common: too much air to one room can cause house infiltration to increase. Knowledgeable independent energy audit, test & plan first, beats "quick fix." Be careful. Leaky return ducts may cause CO hazard - more likely if ONLY supply ducts are sealed!
acboy100: I call Bullcrap!!!! I own my own AC company, dont see this stuff being worth the value.. Just hire some mexican to get in the attic or crawlspace with a bucket of sealant and fix it for 50 bucks.. Just saying.
Ruckus Piper: sounds pretty expensive
bayareahvac: In most cases fixing/sealing air duct leaks sounds easier then it is.
Many leaks are very small, so it's difficult to locate 100% of them. Air ducts are sometimes located in walls, floors, etc, so they can't be accessed without extra expense.
Aeroseal seals air duct leaks from the inside out, the sealant mist will find the leaks, and seal them.
If you need more information please contact us.
bayareahvac: Yes equipment (furnace,coil, air handler,etc.) is sealed from the duct system before the Aeroseal process is started.
