Have you ever wondered how much money you can save each month by having the leaks in your home’s ductwork effectively sealed with Aeroseal? Now you can, thanks to a simple new online energy-savings calculator available on the newly unveiled Aeroseal website.

The Aeroseal homeowner energy savings calculator is easy to use. Users simply answer a few basic questions, such as the amount of their average monthly utility bill and where their home’s ductwork is located. In seconds, they receive an estimate of how much savings they can expect by Aerosealing their ductwork.

“People are often amazed at how much energy they lose through leaks in their ductwork, and even more surprised by how much savings they can realize simply by having those leaks effectively sealed using Aeroseal technology,” said Ken Summers, vice president of Comfort Institute, a home performance research, training and consumer protection organization. “The new calculator makes it easy to see why studies continue to show that effectively sealing the ductwork is often the single most effective thing homeowners can do to save energy.”

The new energy savings calculator is just one of several new features found on the recently redesigned Aeroseal website, launched last week. The site also offers building owners a simple tool to help estimate the amount of leakage present in their buildings’ ductwork, as well as a new easy-to-use Aeroseal dealer locater that makes it simple to find licensed residential and commercial Aeroseal service providers in your neighborhood.

The first thing people will notice when visiting the newly designed website is that getting the information they need is now easier then ever before. Starting with the site’s home page, users now have a choice between residential or commercial applications. Once that choice is made, they receive the tools and information specific to their specific needs.

“Whether you are a homeowner looking to improve the comfort of your home or an engineer looking for ways to improve the ventilation in your building, the new Aeroseal website makes it simple to find the information you need,” said Brian Smith, director of marketing for Aeroseal LLC. “As the use of Aeroseal continues to grow, we knew we needed to provide the answers to all the questions people have about the technology and its use. We think the public will agree – this new website does the trick.”

Other features of the new Aeroseal website include an easy interface for mobile phones, tablets and other platforms, an improved format for learning about the use of Aeroseal and related case studies, a detailed FAQ (frequently asked questions) page and a comprehensive library of videos, photos, documents and other materials related to indoor comfort, energy savings and indoor air quality.

Ventilation for Commercial Buildings

aeroseal_logo_500
Chances are, your building’s ventilation system is broken.  According to the EPA and others, 80% of today’s buildings have ventilation shafts that leak an average of 15% or more. These leaks are the primary cause of ineffective building exhaust.
Like sucking air through a straw with holes in it, no matter how hard you try, getting the straw to work can be an impossible feat…until you seal those holes.

Symptoms of Poor Building Ventilation

Unfortunately, poor building ventilation can cost you plenty. Research has clearly linked faulty building ventilation to higher energy costs, added maintenance costs, chronic health issues, reduced worker productivity, increased absenteeism, lower student scores, and indoor comfort problems. Some common signs of poor ventilation include:

  • Persistent Mold & Mildew – Especially in Bathrooms
  • Chronic Odor Issues
  • Higher than Normal Energy Bills
  • High Rate of Worker Illness & Absenteeism
  • Noisy Exhaust Systems

An Easy Solution to Poor Building Ventilation:

Most experts agree, the reason most U.S. buildings today are plagued with poor ventilation is because there simply wasn’t a practical solution. With most ventilation ductwork hidden behind walls or otherwise hard to access, finding and sealing the leaks responsible for the problem was just too expensive and too disruptive to even consider – so for decades, ventilation issues were simply ignored.

Aeroseal duct sealing technology changed that. Now, sealing the leaks that cause poor ventilation is a straightforward, cost-effective process. Since Aeroseal is applied from the inside of the ductwork, finding and sealing leaks is done with minimal if any disruption to existing structures. Projects can often be completed in as short as a single afternoon. A computerized report shows the actual before and after results.

A Proven Strategy for Ventilation Issues

Aerosealing ventilation shafts solved chronic mold issues at the Capital Plaza Hotel. It reduced energy costs for the Carlyle Towers High-Rise and allowed Condell Hospital to meet pharmacy exhaust regulations.

Falling Back – Change More than Just Your Clock!

aeroseal_logo_500fall-back

We know everybody is excited for that extra hour of sleep this month.
And we also know you will probably uncover at least one clock (the microwave, the stove) that you failed to reset.

Take a few minutes of this extra hour and do a few quick tasks around your home to make sure your family is ready for the season.

1. Change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors – This can be the difference between life and death for your family. Flames can consume a home very quickly, a properly functioning smoke alarm saves lives.

2. Switch your ceiling fan direction – Switch the direction to clockwise which helps pull down the warm air that gets trapped near the ceiling. This can help to reduce home heating costs.

3. Drain your water heater – We all take our water heater for granted, until we wake up to a cold shower. It is recommended to drain one quart of water from your heater on an annual basis. Follow these steps for simple instructions.

4. Call a chimney sweep – According to the Chimney Safety Inspection Institute, chimneys should be checked on an annual basis for obstructions and soot build-up.

5. Schedule a furnace check-up – Ensure your system is running at peak performance before winter is in full force.

6. Clean your fridge’s coils – Pull it out from the wall, take your vacuum to the coils and remove dust and debris that has accumulated over the year. This will increase your refrigerator’s efficiency.

7. Evaluate your emergency kit – Replenish batteries, flashlights, band- aids, bottled water, etc. – anything you may have used over the year. We don’t want you to be caught unprepared if the need would arise.

Did we fill your extra hour?

We wanted to share these simple tasks because we feel they are important for your family’s health and safety – our number one concern.  Enjoy your extra hour!
