AeroSeal Duct Sealing

AeroSeal Duct Sealing Services

Make the Call to American Mechanical Today!

You’ve purchased a brand new, high-efficiency air conditioning system, and yet your first energy bill comes in and you notice that it’s no lower than it was before. In fact, your home really doesn’t feel any cooler than it was before either. What gives? The answer: you probably have air ducts that are falling apart, leaving gaps, holes, and other points for the produced cold air to escape. Believe it or not, the average American home loses anywhere from 25 to as much as 40 percent of all conditioned air through your duct network. That’s a huge drain on your wallet! All it takes is a few small holes placed throughout your duct network and your HVAC equipment will suddenly feel dull and ineffective, if it feels like it’s even working at all.

At American Mechanical, Inc., we offer a solution to your duct inefficiency problems: we are proud to be an installer for AeroSeal, one of the most durable, effective, and complete duct sealing services ever created. AeroSeal uses cutting edge technology to seal off everything from hairline cracks to small gaps that are allowing air to escape, and the entire process is computer controlled to ensure you receive the best possible results. Duct sealing can make your new HVAC equipment perform to the best of its abilities and even extend the lifespan of your older equipment by allowing it to funnel more of the air it produces to your home where it belongs. And it does all of this for an extremely cost-effective price—studies have shown that sealing your air ducts saves by far the most energy, making it the most efficient thing you can do to save energy.

Seal up your duct system with an AeroSeal duct sealing service from the team at American Mechanical! Call us at (757) 347-8549 to schedule your installation today.

How It Works

The AeroSeal service is extremely popular because it can be done quickly, leaves very little room for error, and is entirely computer-controlled for optimal results. Our team will bring a specialized machine to your home that distributes the AeroSeal duct sealant throughout your system using your main HVAC system. The machine also features sensitive equipment that measures air pressure throughout your ducts and uses this information to determine the location and size of any leaks that may exist in your duct network.

Once the process is complete, the inside of your ducts will be evenly coated with a specialized lining made of polymers and a number of other chemicals that dry into a solid, sealed layer. This layer is hypo-allergenic, mold-resistant, and solid to prevent air from escaping as much as possible. Once the process is complete, the average home sees its average air loss reduced from 25-40% to as low as 2%!

What to Expect

Here’s what you can expect from the AeroSealing process. Before we arrive, we’ll ask you to collect a little bit of information and take a few extra proactive steps to prepare your home. First, we’ll need you to count up and confirm the total number of supply registers (air ducts that pull air back to your HVAC system) and air grills (ducts that distribute conditioned air throughout your home). This is important, and it’s important to make sure you look closely to get this number right—some registers and vents are located under furniture, in closets, or even in the ceiling overhead.

We’ll also ask you to complete the following steps:

  • Clear a path to your furnace/air handler, your register locations, and any exposed ductwork you may be able to access
  • Cover any bird cages
  • Move/secure any pets that may get in the way of the service
  • Make sure you have access to four different outlets on four different electrical circuits available. We will most likely be running extension cords to different rooms
  • Assure your security system and smoke detectors are in the “off” or “standby mode”

On the day of the sealing appointment, we will need to be able to park a trailer as close to your air handler as possible, whether that be near the front door, side door, garage, or back door. Please let us know if you will need access to one of these areas before we arrive. We will also need access to all rooms to take measurements, block registers, and assure we can control any overspray. We generally will arrive around 8:30 am to begin the process and will typically be in your home from anywhere between four to six hours, depending on the level of leakage the system finds.

Once the sealing service is complete, the AeroSeal system will print a completed certification of sealing that shows instantaneous results. The certificate will include the amount of detected leakage in your system before the process began and what your system registered in its final leakage pressure test. This allows you to see immediately how much you’ll save in terms of energy and money!

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Rodney W. from American Mechanical repaired an electrical issue I recently had at my home. He displayed stellar customer service skills and the professionalism and knowledge of a seasoned electrician. Rodney patiently listened as I described the issue to him. He knew right away where the problem was and had the issue resolved within a short period of time! Rodney was very kind to Max, our dog who has absolutely no concept of his size but yet wants to “help”. Rodney and the American Mechanical staff made the entire experience pleasantly an easy one. He is definitely an asset to American Mechanical and truly appreciated by me. Many thanks to all!” - Kathryn B
  • “This is the third time Rich P. has come to my house for plumbing issues. Each time he has been very knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Rich also allowed me to watch him while he did the work and taught me as he performed the repairs. I have learned a lot about plumbing as a new homeowner all thanks to Rich. Thank you so much!” - K. Terry
  • “Our experience with American Mechanical was superb! Each member of the team is professional. This is the third generator I have purchased. American Mechanical sales, finance, installation and the technology-based management is the best experience I have ever had. I have recommended this company to the other 80 residents of our over 55 community in Chesapeake, VA. Outstanding!” - Edward N.
  • “The technician was completely thorough and professional. He explained the process and was very knowledgeable about the services he provided. I was shown pictures and given detailed pictures and information after the service was completed. I am extremely happy with the level of service I received today and previously. I will continue to use this company and I highly recommend this company to others! A side note for women…this company does what it says it will do and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of.” - Pamela J.
  • “I purchased a home and closed last week and was super distraught to find out I had some major plumbing issues not even 48 hours after moving into my new home. Some we were not aware of and some that the seller was supposed to have fixed- but didn’t. It was a good amount of work. Starting from the first call to the office the representatives and dispatchers were very kind and responsive. Then, these guys came out to my home and did a thorough check up and diagnosis of my problems and gave me options to choose from to fix the problems. They took the time to answer all of my questions and eased my anxiety over the entire situation. They did a fantastic job doing the repairs and installations. After the initial job was completed the next day we were having an appliance delivered and I came to find yet another issue in a different area of my home which prevented the washing machine from being installed. I called American Mechanical back again and they sent a plumber out right away! Again I was given options and again I felt secure in knowing when they come out to do the work it will be done just as well as they did the couple of days before! I was so impressed with the service I received that I purchased their maintenance package. Highly recommend this company! Excellent service from the first call. Courteous repairs from specialists who are master experts in their field and no run around. They are honest and dependable. Five stars all the way!” - J. Ewan
  • “We are so impressed with the service we received from Matthew and Dominique over the three days they were here. Not only were they professional, they were also polite, kind and knowledgeable. They kept us completely in the loop the entire time they were in our home. They always arrived on time and put in the long hours to get our new HVAC system in place and running. We did run into an issue with the system that was not identified when we purchased and American Mechanical took total responsibility for it and made things right by doing the additional work and not charging us for it. World class service! I highly recommend this company! We felt like Matthew and Dominique were family by the time they left! I will be requesting them any time I need service!” - M. Jaskowiak
  • “Today Jon V. came to do my yearly maintenance on my GENERAC generator. He called me when he was on the way for my service call and he gave me an estimated time of arrival. Jon was very professional and answered all of my questions and then some. I just signed up for their five year maintenance plan because I know they will take good care of my generator. I know American Mechanical will be here when I need them.” - Fawn B.
  • “I was surprised when Taylor called and told me a woman technician would be servicing my HVAC systems today. Very impressed with my services provided by Kristin. Would love to have her for all future maintenances!” - L. Rose
  • “Kristin was our technician for this preventative maintenance check on our new system ductwork and electrostatic air cleaner. She was very thorough in her work and even went the extra mile to clean and dilute any cleaning chemicals that had pooled on the concrete pad. Kristin is very friendly and knowledgeable of our product. We appreciate her hard work in the extremely hot weather! Would definitely recommend her for your HVAC needs.” - Mike B.
