We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the importance of duct sealing in regards to home energy savings. It’s no wonder, when you figure that heating and cooling costs represent the overwhelming majority of utility expenses for homeowners, and that an average of 30% of that cost is leaking out the ductwork instead of being delivered to the rooms that need it. Aeroseal is the first effective solution to sealing leaky air ducts located throughout the entire ductwork system.
But lately, Aeroseal has been getting addition attention for its ability to solve a problem that has been plaguing engineers and building managers ever since…well, ever since there were engineers and building managers. That problem is poor exhaust ventilation.
We’ve all experienced it. The government building that smells of stale air, the office that seems to attract headaches, the public restroom that smells like a floral shop on steroids, the apartment building with chronic mold issues and condensation on the windows. These are all symptoms of an ineffective exhaust system – one that is simply not doing its job of removing the old stale air along with the odors and bacteria they often contain.
