What is Duct Sealing?
Duct Sealing will eliminate air leakage through gaps in your duct system. Once these leaks are sealed, your system will operate much more efficiently & will do a better job keeping all the rooms in your home at the same temperature. Even brand new homes have unacceptable levels of duct leakage since they use Duct Mastic Sealing. Duct Mastic Sealing is a thing of the past & doesn’t work well with older and/or modern homes, big or small.
Clean Living Environments uses innovative technology that quickly and efficiently seals the cracks and holes in your air vent system from the inside. This makes your home healthier, safer & more comfortable while enhancing the performance of your air conditioning & the heating system – improving the environment & saving you money every day.
What makes this a game-changer is that it seals all of your ducts – including the ones you cannot see and/or that are behind walls & under flooring.
How it works
A non-toxic Aeroseal is sprayed throughout your entire duct system from your basement to your attic. The Aeroseal does not coat the ductwork. It remains suspended in air until it comes to a leak & is forced to the opening. Here it clings to the edge of the hole & then to other sealant particles until the leak is completely sealed. Holes & cracks up to 5/8th of an inch wide can be completely sealed.
The Aeroseal air duct sealing process leaves no lingering odor, & since the material does not put off gas over time, there will be no odor for the life of the product.
We are the leaders in this technology & on average a medium sized house will have the accumulative holes the size of several basketballs in their new or existing ductwork.
Are the sealing material used by the Aeroseal air duct sealing system safe?
Here is the scientific explanation: The sealant material consists of a water-based solution (65% water) prior to application. The dried sealant material primarily contains two chemicals, Vinyl Acetate Polymer (VAP) & 2-Ethyl-1 Hexanol (2E1H). The vast majority of what is left in the duct system is VAP, which has been used in water-based paints, adhesives & hair spray.
VAP has been used in chewing gum & has no OSHA Exposure Limit. 2E1H is a common industrial solvent & is not considered toxic by OSHA. A review of the literature showed no ill effects after long-term exposure to concentrations of 200 ppm. The largest concentration of 2E1H measured in test houses was 1 ppb (200,000 times smaller) during Aeroseal injection. The sealant is UL-listed for smoke generation & flame spread (UL 723 0,0) & additional testing by UL showed no signs of mold growth or erosion.
This is a clean, safe, affordable way to enhance your new or existing HVAC system, saving you thousands of dollars over the years.
How long will the air duct sealing material last?
The sealing material has been found in rigorous testing to last over 10 years without failure.
