When my heating bill was a little higher every month, I knew there was a problem, but i am very conscientious about having the oil furnace professionally tested, cleaned plus tuned every fall; Because of this, I was suspicious that the ductwork was to blame for the rising heating costs, then the oil furnace was absolutely running longer plus yet having a difficult time meeting demands, and certain rooms in the beach house were regularly chilly! Since the duct plan is concealed inside walls, ceilings plus crawl spaces, I was unable to check it out.
- I hired a professional Heating and Air Conditioning business to supply duct testing, he determined that approximately 30% of my heated air was escaping through leaks at the seams plus small holes, plus advised duct sealing, but at 1 time, the duct sealing process was very work intensive.
Technicians were required to manually locate plus repair each flaw in the ducts. There is now a process that seals the ducts from the inside out. Aeroseal duct sealing works by sending pressurized air laced with adhesive polymer particles into the ducts. As this air escape through the numerous imperfections, the particles stick to the edges, build up plus gradually seal the holes. The process takes a few hours to complete but causes no destruction or disruption. There’s no unpleasant smell or mess left behind, plus the service is warrantied to last for a minimum of multiple years. The Heating and Air Conditioning business then tests the duct plan to ensure the results. I was amazed by the improvement in the cleanliness, smell plus comfort of my home. I was extremely happy with the much lower energy bills.
