AerosealUSA: An aerosol-based duct sealing solution that works from the inside of a duct has been named as the overall winner of the AHR Expo Innovation of the Year Awards.

The Aeroseal duct sealing technology was named today as the outright winner from ten categories of product being shown at this week’s AHR Expo show in Orlando, Florida.

Aeroseal is said to offer the industry’s first alternative to traditional manual duct sealing, with an aerosol-based duct sealing solution that works from the inside of the ventilation shaft to “seek” and bond-seal targeted leaks.

Developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with funding from the US Department of Energy, EPA and others, this duct sealing technology enables access to leaks in exhaust shafts of existing buildings without any deconstruction/demolition.

Aeroseal software allows the technician to accurately measure the duct leakage in residential homes and commercial buildings. The Aeroseal process puts escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed.
