Attention Commercial Building Owners and Facility Managers: About 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 in Frankfort, KY. It reduced energy costs for the Carlyle Towers High-Rise in Caldwell, NJ, and allowed Condell Hospital in Libertyville, IL to meet pharmacy exhaust regulations.

Duct Sealing a Logical Add-On to Duct Cleaning, Officials Say

aeroseal_logo_500

At Aeroseal, we pride ourselves on the “1-2 punch” that cleaning and sealing ductwork offers homeowners and business owners.

You probably already know the benefits of cleaning air duct systems in homes and buildings. Unfortunately, cleaning a duct system alone is only “fixing the symptom” (e.g. the ducts are dirty). It does not prevent the ducts from getting dirty AGAIN.

Good news! Aeroseal makes it extremely easy to effectively clean ducts AND prevent them from getting dirty again, leading to improved air quality (less dust and airborne allergens) in homes and buildings.

Furthermore, SNIPS magazine recently published “Duct Sealing a Logical Add-On to Duct Cleaning, Officials Say,” by Michael McConnell.

In the article, McConnell writes, “For a growing number of duct cleaning companies, a project isn’t finished until that newly scrubbed ductwork and its HVAC system have been sealed. Sealing ductwork involves applying products such as tapes, coatings and sprays to the ductwork’s exterior or interior to ensure homeowners and building owners get all the HVAC performance they expect.”

NADCA Executive Director Kristy Cohen adds, “[Duct Sealing] is a service that’s growing in popularity.”

She points out, “We’re seeing an increase in the number of our NADCA members who are in that duct-sealing space. It’s something that they are looking at as a natural progression.”
