Before starting the sealing process with AEROSEAL, the total leakage of the air duct system concerned is determined and recorded and this process is repeated after sealing to establish a recorded improvement. The customer receives a certificate on completion detailing the achieved reduction.
AEROSEAL can reduce the leakage of air conduction systems by an average of 90% in a very short time.
The typical leakage of air duct systems in Europe is between 15 - 30%.
This allows for an energy saving potential of up to 50% on the required fan energy. In addition, there is also considerable potential for savings in heating and cooling power. In buildings with a high air exchange rate, such as hospitals, pharmaceutical industry, the sealing typically pays for itself in a very short time, in some cases even within one year.
To illustrate the theoretical relationships between SFP, air leakage rate and the power requirement of a fan.
