INCREASE VENTILATION

ENERGY WASTE IN
BUILDINGS TODAY

ASHRAE estimates most commercial buildings experience 10-25% air duct leakage. This requires HVAC systems to work more than necessary to keep buildings at comfortable temperatures.

A recent study from the Building Commissioning Association quantified duct leakage as a $2.9B problem.

Increased Fan Energy

Poor Air Quality

Ongoing Operating Costs

The more air that leaks out of your ducts, the harder your fans have to push to reach the desired space. Duct leakage leads to excess ventilation loads, which in turn drastically increases your energy costs.

Leaks in the return duct allow airborne allergens, viruses, and bacteria to be sucked into the duct system. These contaminants are then spread throughout the facility, compromising air quality for other occupants.

Leaky ductwork is the primary cause of ineffective building exhaust, causing problems with uneven and uncomfortable temperatures that can lead to higher energy bills, and added maintenance costs.

INTRODUCING OUR PROVEN
TURNKEY SOLUTION

We combine energy advisory services, experienced technicians and award-winning technologies to eliminate duct leakage and unnecessary energy waste.

Our Duct Sealing & HVAC Optimization solution provides a cost-effective, non-disruptive solution to eliminate energy loss, optimize mechanical equipment, and reduce your carbon footprint.

INCREASE VENTILATION. REDUCE ENERGY. OFFSET CARBON.

The Duct Sealing & HVAC Optimization solution allows facilities to significantly increase air volume and exchange rates by rehabilitating ductwork infrastructure and sealing leaky ducts.

 

As a result, buildings can significantly improve indoor air quality, eliminate unnecessary energy waste and reduce carbon emissions - without the need for costly mechanical upgrades.
