AeroSeal Duct Sealing Service in Indianapolis, IN
Air duct systems in most homes lose 25% – 40% of their air, leaking hundreds of cubic feet of air per minute. Duct sealing can reduce up to 90% of air lolss.
Leaks cause conditioned air to seep into the attic or crawl space before it can make it’s way to your home’s interior. Your HVAC system consumes more energy as it works harder and longer to keep your home comfortable. The extra energy costs you more money in monthly energy bills.
AeroSeal duct sealing is a specialized process, that uses a non-toxic substance (the primary component is used in chewing gum) designed to seal these money draining leaks. The process has been used in hospitals and government institutions. Benefits of duct sealing include:
- Save up to 40% every month on your energy bill
- Improve your family’s comfort in those hard-to-heat or cool rooms as air is directed to where it is designed to go, and not into your basement, attic, or crawl space
- Improve the air quality for your entire family by reducing dust, allergens, and indoor air pollutants in your home that return air ducts pull in and send through your HVAC system

Testing for Duct Leaks
Your home’s duct system moves heated and cooled air throughout the house. If the system is working correctly, it should distribute the air evenly so that your home will reach and maintain the desired temperature efficiently. In contrast, if your ducts are leaking air, your HVAC system will need to work harder to achieve the set temperature. A leaky duct system can also cause some rooms to be too hot or cold in extreme outdoor temperatures.
Since heating and cooling your home accounts for about half of your home’s energy usage, duct sealing is the number one energy-saving home improvement. Many homes lose about 20% to 30% of the conditioned air through gaps often found at the seams in the ductwork and air handler. Duct sealing actually saves more energy than the installation of new windows while costing you dramatically less.
Since most homes have leaky ductwork, it is wise to consult with one of our experts at Williams Comfort Air. Our technician will pressurize your duct system, by blocking the airflow from vents and registers in your home, in order to find cracks or holes that are leaking air in the ductwork. Then the air leakage can be measured to determine if you should consider duct sealing for your home. If you choose to seal your air ducts, our technician will use the AeroSeal process to flood the sealant throughout the duct system. As the process is monitored by the technician, you will be shown improved performance in a graph for your reference. You will get a printed report showing the decrease in air leakage based on the original pressurized test that was conducted.

AeroSeal Duct Sealing from Williams Comfort Air
Duct sealing can be difficult when it comes to finding and reaching the leaks because they are all too often in a hard-to-access place. Ducts are usually hard to reach in general, and without highly trained technicians, the evaluation can inadvertently damage your duct system. The Aeroseal duct sealing process takes a great deal of guesswork out of the equation.
That’s why the Aeroseal duct sealing process is a key part of Williams Comfort Air’s services.
A pre-test is run after pressurizing your duct system by sealing off all vents and registers and forcing air to leave the system through any leaks that may exist. If the results of pre-testing are such that your home will benefit from duct sealing, the Aeroseal sealant will be introduced to the pressurized system as it runs. The sealant particles are suspended in the air as they are pushed through the system. The particles will stick to the edge of a breach, sealing the leak. Duct sealing solves the air leakage problem without having to access your ducts through your walls or other tricky areas.
There are so many benefits to the AeroSeal process like…
- Lower energy bills from a more efficient HVAC system
- Healthier air
- A longer lifespan for your HVAC system
- Non-invasive process that doesn’t damage your walls
