Energy Audits

Energy audits focus primarily on improving the health, safety and comfort of those dwelling in the home, increasing the home’s energy efficiency and can also help homeowners to reduce energy bills. Home energy audits include diagnostic testing and a thorough visual inspection of your home by experienced experts that know exactly what to look for.

The Right Equipment

After a visual inspection, infrared images of the home are taken, indicating to the auditing professional which areas have significant heat and cooling loss. Once the problem areas have been identified using these images, they can be addressed and energy efficiency in the home can be maximized.

A blower door test is also performed in order to indicate areas of the home that need sealing, weatherstripping or other attention to reduce energy loss. Using a calibrated fan that mounts onto an exterior door of the home, a vacuum is created by pulling air out of the home, allowing outside air to flow in. This produces an obvious draft, exposing any unsealed crevices in the home.

Aeroseal Duct Sealing Technology
  • Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented breakthrough technology that tackles leaks from the inside out. Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed.

  • The technology was developed within the Indoor Environment Program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, whose IAQ scientists tested it. The research was funded by US Environmental protection agency, US dept. of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute and California Institute of Energy and Environment.
  • The University of California was granted initial patents in 1996 and 1999, and Aeroseal holds an exclusive license to the technology.
Energy Savings
While energy savings resulting from reducing leakage vary based on climate, utility rates, and your heating and cooling system, the other goals of even temperatures in all rooms, improved indoor air quality, and reduction of odors and fumes will be achieved regardless of those conditions. In commercial building applications, Aeroseal also solves air flow and ventilation issues in addition to energy savings.

We Fix and Seal Leaky Ducts

  • The amount and percentage of air leaking from the ductwork and other air flow or ventilation problems.
  • Inconsistent temperature variations throughout the home or building.
  • Air flow levels for each room.
  • Backdraft and combustion safety hazard potential for fireplaces, furnaces, and gas heater rooms and closets in residential homes.
  • Manual repair needs of air duct system.
How It Works
In an Aeroseal air duct diagnostic, a certified Aeroseal technician inspects and evaluates your central air duct system and recommends ways to maximize your savings and improve your home comfort or improve building efficiency and solve air flow / ventilation problems.

Major factors during inspections are construction practices, type of duct work, age of the home / building, hot or cold or stuffy rooms, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems, high energy bills etc.

Aeroseal’s trained and certified technicians use computer-based tools and reports to gather information about duct leakage and register airflows.
