This startup seals your leaky home so you waste less energy and reduce your bill

Diana Olick of CNBC reports on Aeroseal, a startup that is sealing leaky homes.

The C3 Take
  • Leaky air ducts and walls are the biggest reason for wasted energy in homes and can lose between 25% and 40% of heating or cooling energy put out.
  • Aeroseal’s system does not need to cut into walls and instead works through ducts to pressurize and seal leaks.
  • While Aeroseal’s solution costs about $2,500 to implement, the investment pays itself off within 4 years through lower energy costs.

“The system is relatively simple, and akin to fixing a flat tire. It first pressurizes the ducts or building envelope with a fan, then injects micron-sized particles, which, as they try to escape the building or any space, automatically adhere to the gaps and seals them. The particles are made of a non-toxic, non-flammable emulsion of water and vinyl acetate, according to the company, which adds that these are some of the same ingredients found in pacifiers and chewing gum.”
