DUCT SEALING WITH AEROSEAL
Leaking air ducts are by far the leading cause of energy loss in the United States. That's why it's on the top of our "to-do" list. Worthmore utilizes the revolutionary Aeroseal process which seals duct systems non-invasively from the inside. The short "Ask This Old House" video segment posted here provides a helpful discussion of the problems posed by leaking ducts and an excellent, succinct description of solution provided by the Aeroseal process. The majority of most air duct systems is hidden in cavities, crawl spaces, and behind walls. Conventional hand sealing methods -- imperfect and time consuming to begin with -- cannot reach these hidden areas without expensive demolition and reconstruction. Aeroseal solves this problem simply and economically. Developed over 20 years ago at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory with grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, the game-changing Aeroseal process has been used now in over 100,000 applications nationwide, from residential homes to municipal buildings, skyscrapers, university classroom buildings, hospitals and office parks. As one of the first Aeroseal dealers in New England, The Worthmore Group is capable of sealing up to 95% of leakage in both new and older systems with minimal disruption to the daily rhythms of work, school or home.
WITH DUCT SEALING
UP TO 30% ENERGY SAVINGS
Reduce duct leakage by upt to 95% and your energy bills by as much as 30%
Reduce temperature differences between floors and hard to heat or cool rooms for additional comfort throughout the building.
IMPROVED AIR QUALITY
Prevent dust, allergens, and pollutants from entering the air stream and being distributed throughout the building.
EXTENDED HVAC EQUIPMENT LIFE
Reducing leakage mades the system more efficient, which reduces the effort the HVAC equipment needs to meet comfort needs.
WITHOUT DUCT SEALING
20% TO 40% AIR LEAKAGE
3 out of 4 buildings experience unintended air entering into and out of ductwork
LOST CONDITIONED AIR
Duct leakage results in air not getting to the intended locations in your home, resulting in higher energy bills, reduced air flow, and comfort issues.
POOR AIR QUALITY
Untreated and unfiltered air from crawlspaces, attics, wall cavities, and other spaces can be pulled into ductwork.
Your system is forced to work harder trying to get air where it is designed to go, shortening its life. New systems will not achieve the desired efficiency that you've paid for.
