Aeroseal Installation: What to Expect
Let’s do this.
Phase I: Prep and Test
Our technicians will begin by temporarily blocking all registers with foams plugs. This will force air in the ducts to escape through existing leaks.
Then, the furnace, fan, and indoor air conditioning coil are also temporarily blocked with foam to prevent sealant from entering these parts of the system.
Connect System to Ductwork
Once the system is prepped, the Aeroseal machine is connected to the ductwork using flat-lay tubing.
Your All American Heating technician will run a pre-test to take an initial reading. This will measure the exact amount of duct leakage in your system. Typical leakage detected in a home is between 25% and 40%.
A small access hole (which will be closed upon project completion) is cut into one of the primary ducts, and a temporary collar attached. One end of the tubing connects to this collar; the other end connects to the Aeroseal machine
Phase II: Seal and Measure
Leaky Ducts Are Found
The patented Aeroseal sealant is sprayed into the ductwork as a mist. Pressurization helps the sealant find holes and cracks in the ducts.
Sealant Closes the Leaks
The Aeroseal particles collect at the edges of the holes and cracks in the ductwork, sealing them from the inside.
Monitor the Process
During sealing, your All American Heating technician monitors the process in real-time via computer or tablet. The screen displays the minute-by-minute reduction in leakage.
Phase III: Enjoy Comfort and Savings
Certificate of Completion
Congratulations! Your seal is complete!
When your installation is done, your All American technician will present you with your completion certificate, generated by the Aeroseal system. This certificate includes before-and-after readings of your duct leakage and shows verifiable proof of the seal from your Aeroseal installation.
You’ll also notice improved indoor air quality, with less dust, fewer allergens, and cleaner air, right away.
The Results Are Instant
You’ll notice the difference in your home’s airflow immediately upon your project’s completion.
Temperatures throughout your home will even out, with no more hot or cold spots, and the entire system will run more efficiently, saving you money on utility bills
