Is Aeroseal Safe?


DuctworkAeroseal resolves high energy bills and leaky air ducts without adding pollutants that affect indoor air quality. The more people become aware of chemicals and hazards that pollute the air, the more they think about the materials and products used in and around the home. That’s why Aeroseal is a perfect, safe solution to leaky ducts; it won’t create a brand new problem.

DOE and EPA Approved

The development of Aeroseal was backed by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. Their research led to the Aeroseal methods and materials for sealing the leaks that waste energy and money and harm indoor air quality.

The EPA discovered that indoor air, especially that in the home, is sometimes as much as 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. And a large part of the problem is leaks that allow pollutants inside. Further, the Aeroseal product doesn’t add pollutants of its own.

Aeroseal Chemicals Are Non-Toxic

The Aeroseal process involves sealing off the HVAC system, pressurizing it and sending a mist of sealants through the ducts to close off every air leak, no matter where it’s located. That naturally makes homeowners wonder just what’s in the mist.

The primary component in Aeroseal is Vinyl Acetate Polymer (VAP). But don’t worry about the chemical-sounding name. It’s the same thing you’d find in chewing gum and zero-VOC, water-based paint. OSHA doesn’t even list recommended VAP exposure times. Aeroseal is so safe, most people don’t have to leave home while the technician seals the ducts. And there’s almost no odor.

It’s Safe for HVAC Systems, Too

With all of that mist filling the ducts, you might wonder about how it affects the mechanical parts of your HVAC system. Not to worry. Part of the Aeroseal process is sealing off the system. The only areas affected by the sealant are the ducts; everything else is blocked until the process is over.

Aeroseal won’t clog up your ducts or reduce airflow, either. It works under pressure that forces sealant into the openings. Mist enters the ducts and only sticks to the edges of gaps and leaks. Then as more mist fills the system, more and more sealant particles build up only where you need them. Eventually, leaks are sealed and the remaining sealant is drawn back out again.

Aeroseal isn’t just safe to use, it makes your home a safer place to breathe. Allergy sufferers may find that dust and seasonal issues with pollen are a thing of the past. And of course, the biggest benefit is reduced energy costs and lower bills. It’s an all-around win.

If your home is dusty and your heating and cooling bills seem to get worse and worse every year, the problem might be as close as your ductwork. And now, there’s a much more effective way of sealing the gaps and leaks than applying aluminum tape and mastic. Aeroseal reaches into the farthest nooks and crannies of your ductwork and adds nothing to contaminate the air.
