Aerosol Ductwork Breakthrough

Ductwork Sealing Technology

Aeroseal’s aerosol ductwork sealing technology was invented and developed by the Energy Performance of Buildings Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1994. This technology internally seals duct leaks in air distribution ducts by injecting a fog of aerosolized sealant particles into a pressurized duct system. The key to the technology is to keep the particles suspended within the air stream without depositing on the duct surfaces until they reach the leaks, where they leave the air stream, deposit at the leak edges, and seal the leaks.

Our Patented Machine is made up of the following components. Each component is essential to the Aeroseal process.

  1. Control Case
  2. Fan Box Assembly
  3. Control Box Assembly
  4. Sealant Injection Wand

Aeroseal Facts Did You Know? Aeroseal Facts Did You Know?
Some homeowners have saved up to 40% of their energy bills after having the Aeroseal air duct sealing system seal their central air duct system. A typical homeowner should expect to see measurable reduction in energy use for Heating and Cooling. The Aeroseal process won the “Best of What’s New” award from Popular Science magazine, and the “Energy 100″ award from the Department of Energy (DOE). The Department Of Energy also rated the Aeroseal duct sealing process as one of the 23 most beneficial technologies available to American consumers that has come out since the agency was created. The US Department of Energy (DOE) states that energy wasted from leaky residential ducts alone is equivalent to the energy burned by 13 million cars a year.
