Aeroseal Makes a Change

Product modifications to the Aeroseal duct-sealing system should cause more contractors to consider this profitable add-on service.

Product modifications to the Aeroseal duct-sealing system should cause more contractors to consider this profitable add-on service. Changes include a reduction in the size of the application unit, and software that can be used with virtually any device, according to Aeroseal co-founder Amit Gupta, interviewed recently by Contracting Business.

"It's been a confirmational year for us, in that we have been able to move our technologies to work significantly better and faster. We're trying to
make it so simple to operate that it could be on every HVAC service vehicle," said Gupta. "Each time a dealer is servicing or installing equipment they should be able to see the interior of the ductwork at the same time."

Once connected to a home's heating and air conditioning system, the non-toxic, water-based Aeroseal formula effectively seals all the holes in air ducts and vents, making sure the air goes where it's needed. Target conditions include leaking return air ductwork that sucks in humidity and pollen and leaking supply ducts that lose warm or cool air.

"Dealers can use Aeroseal in maintenance contracts, and during spring and fall check-ups. They just bring it with them to improve comfort and air quality. It is something that will pay for itself [through improved efficiency]." Gupta said.

Gupta purchased the Aeroseal residential system from Carrier in 2010.
Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, Aeroseal welcomes the consideration of any qualified contractor with interest in improving the efficiency of their customers' HVAC systems and providing a way toward improved indoor air quality.Aeroseal is available to qualified dealers who offer home performance work, or are qualified through programs such as BuildingPerformance Institute or National Comfort Institute, or any qualified HVAC  dealer installing any of the major brands. The confirmation process take about one to two months, and is based on how well a dealer demonstrates their qualifications and commitment to integrating Aeroseal into their
service program. 

A separate Aeroseal product is available for sealing building envelopes. They also have an as-yet non-commercialized product  for sealing underground gas lines.
