The expression, “Out of sight and out of mind” may be the best way to describe HVAC ductwork. Many of the leaks in your ducting system are invisible to the naked eye. While alone they amount to little, when combined they are catastrophic. Leaky ductwork is causing Australian HVAC equipment to work much harder than similar systems in many other developed countries. This is resulting in higher energy use, greater maintenance bills and worse still, poor occupant comfort levels and unhealthy buildings. Fortunately, there is a simple solution, Aeroseal.
Aeroseal is a high tech, low cost non-invasive and environmentally friendly solution to leaky duct systems. In Australia, only Efficiency Matrix is licensed to use Aeroseal to repair leaky duct systems.
The solution works like this. Firstly, Efficiency Matrix provides a service where they use state of the art, non-invasive technology to assess all of the seals within a ducting system and provide a precise measurement of the leakage rate by international standards and guidelines on how the problems can be fixed. Occasionally these problems are structural, but most of the time the problem is an accumulation of smaller leaks.
Is there a non-invasive way to seal large and small air conditioning ducting holes?
The short answer is yes. It’s called Aeroseal. Aeroseal’s patented technology deploys an eco-friendly compound that actively seeks out and fills gaps and holes that are invisible to the naked eye, right up to holes of more than 15.8mm in size. Because the Aeroseal process to done section by section, the location of larger holes and in some cases complete disconnections can be isolated and repaired using conventional methods. It does this with minimal interruption to business.
What happens next?
Once the Efficiency Matrix team is finished, they can then conduct new tests to assess the efficiency of your properly sealed ducting system. You can then enjoy lower energy bills, improved comfort levels and a healthier environment for all occupants.
