The numbers tell the story: roughly 48 percent of the energy use in a typical American household goes to heating and cooling, by far the largest percentage. What’s more, 20-30 percent of the air flowing through the ducts is lost to leaks, making it the number one cause of home energy waste. All this to say, every year you could be paying hundreds of dollars in heating and cooling bills you shouldn’t have to pay! But there’s good news… E.T. Lawson can help you seal your ducts and keep more money in your pocket. Before we get to how, let’s take a look at the signs your ductwork might need some work…
Signs Your Ductwork Needs Attention
Most of the time you can’t see the gaps and spaces where air is leaking, so you should look for other indicators of a leak. If your energy bills are higher than expected, your home is uncomfortable and stuffy, the air quality is poor, there’s dust everywhere, or temperatures vary from one room to the next, you could have a problem on your hands. How can E.T. Lawson help?
How We Seal Your Ducts
One of our highly-skilled technicians will analyze your ductwork by running a number of computerized tests – this will inform them how much air is escaping. From there, they’ll use Aeroseal to seal your entire duct system. Using a powerful fan, our technician will blow Aeroseal sealant particles through the ductwork, which fill the holes and gaps. After the process is complete, they’ll run a computerized analysis to give you a before-and-after understanding of the amount of leakage.
Benefits of Aeroseal
First and foremost, Aeroseal lowers your energy costs by keeping conditioned air where it belongs – inside. In fact, it can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems by up to 20 percent. Aeroseal also improves the comfort of your home by helping to stabilize the temperature throughout, and even boosts your health by reducing the amount of pollutants circulating through your home.
