Air ducts are normally tucked away where you don’t see them. Out of sight should not be out of mind. Your ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and are the key to maximizing comfort and efficiency. Leaking ducts can be the reason for overly high utility bills, rooms that are difficult to heat or cool, and excess dust. Ducts in poor condition allow conditioned air to escape into basements, attics and crawlspaces, wasting hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs. Polluted air can be drawn into holes in ductwork, then circulated throughout your home. The integrity of your duct system directly affects the efficiency, performance and longevity of your HVAC system. For the most cost-effective, timesaving and beneficial solution to leaking ductwork, trust the professionals from Brian and Sons Inc.
While Aeroseal duct sealing might be new to you, rest assured the results have been tested and proven by more than 25,000 residential duct systems, saving billions of dollar in energy bills annually.

Holes in ducts lose 15% to 30% of air passing through the system, increasing both electricity use and emissions of pollutants. For traditional methods of sealing ducts, workers must follow duct systems into attics, basements and crawl spaces, finding holes and fixing them one by one. Because the process is time-consuming and labor-intensive, it is also costly and relies on the dedication of the technician. In some cases, ductwork is impossible to access.
The process of Aerosol duct sealing starts by closing off grilles and registers. The certified specialists from Brian and Sons Inc then blow air containing aerosolized adhesive particles into the system. Leaks in the ductwork cause air to speed up and severely turn. As the air is drawn out, aerosolized particles adhere and accumulate on edges, quickly sealing holes up to one inch across. Well-sealed ducts facilitate airflow, assisting heating and cooling systems, saving on energy costs and achieving comfort levels more quickly and uniformly. The entry of dust, mold, unwanted humidity, radon, exhaust gases, and other pollutants are prevented, keeping a cleaner, healthier home.

Your Ducts Shouldn’t Cost You Money, But They Do!
Homeowners may not ever think about their air ducts. But, the fact is, something that most of us never even think about could be costing us a lot more money than we realize.
Whether a home is old, or new, leaking ducts cost a homeowner money, not to mention the stress it causes an HVAC system. Consider this:
- About 50% of the average home’s utility bill is spent on heating and air conditioning.
- On average, 30 cents of every $1 spent on heating and cooling a home disappears into thin air due to leaky ducts.
- 25% to 60% of heated and cooled air doesn’t make it to their intended rooms.
- Duct leakage in homes costs homeowners $25 billion a year in utility costs.
Create a Safer, Healthier Home
- Leaks pull mold, dust, and other pollutants into your home, causing indoor air quality issues and have potential to create harmful allergy problems.
- Leaks contribute to safety issues related to backdraft of appliance fumes, auto exhaust and radon gases being released into your home.
