Indoor air quality has become one the most important emerging trends in the residential HVAC and housing market. While many believe that outdoor air is more polluted, it’s actually the indoor air that causes most of the problems. Couple that with the fact that people spend an average of 90 percent of their lives indoors, and this becomes an even more contentious issue.
Fortunately, Aeroseal solves some of these indoor air quality problems while improving energy efficiency and cutting costs in your Houston, Texas, home. If you’ve never heard of Aeroseal, here’s a glance at what it does and why you need it.
What Is Aeroseal?
Aeroseal fixes the problems caused by leaky ducts. In most situations, leaky ducts lose conditioned air into spaces like the basement or the attic, cause your HVAC system to work harder than it has to, and invite contaminants and particulates into your home. The problem is that many of these leaky areas aren’t always visible, and some traditional fixes, such as caulk or duct tape, don’t always do the trick.
Aeroseal is the product that not only makes it easier for us to fix your leaky ducts, but it also provides a solution to leaks that will last for 40 years. This patented technology works by putting escaping air from your ducts under pressure and analyzing the information through a computer. After finding the leaks, one of our technicians injects polymer particles that attach to the edges of the leak, and eventually each other, until the hole’s filled.
How Does Aeroseal Improve Air Quality?
When our workers come out to employ the Aeroseal technology, they block all the air vents. This forces any particles or contaminants out of the system through the holes in the ducts. Once they seal the ducts, no air can get back in unless it goes through your HVAC filter. This leads to pristine air quality throughout your entire home.
With Aeroseal, you get so many benefits over traditional mastic and tape duct sealing that there’s no debate on which one to choose. If you’re ready to take the plunge, call Davis Air Conditioning and Heating at 888-710-5530.
