DUCT CLEAN AND SEAL
Are you tired of wasting money? Tired of having hot and cold spots in your house? You’re not alone. In fact, the average duct system loses 25%-40% of heating and cooling through leaks in the air duct system. Duct repairs could be the most important energy improvement measure you can do. Aeroseal helps to eliminate that leakage to produce even more conditioning throughout the house as well as less wasted energy.
Without duct sealing, your home may be one of the 3 of 4 homes experiencing unintended air entering into and out of the ductwork. Duct leakage results in air not getting to the intended locations in your home, resulting in higher energy bills, reduced air flow, and comfort issues. Untreated and unfiltered air from crawlspaces, attics, wall cavities and other spaces can be pulled into the ductwork and enter the home air stream. Your HVAC system is forced to work harder trying to get air where it is designed to go.
When it comes to ductwork, follow our easy three-step process:
Determine air leakage
EZ Green Home can conveniently perform a duct test at the same time you receive a Home Performance with Energy Star audit. With state of the art diagnostic equipment, we can determine:
- Total external static pressure
- Total leakage
- Total leakage to outside
A duct test is also required to receive up to 50% of participating utility rebate incentives on duct sealing. The rebate available for customers of BGE, Pepco, SMECO and Delmarva is 50% of duct sealing cost, up to $2,500.
EZ Green Home can help you determine if your home can benefit from duct cleaning, or you can self-diagnose your system. A few ways to check are:
- Open vent covers and look inside for dirt, debris, or matted dust.
- Examine return air registers and air filters for dust buildup.
- Check the furnace compartment, blower fan and motor for dust.
- Check your air conditioning coil, usually beneath the panel for dust.
- Check for dirt around supply registers.
If you do need a duct cleaning, we can help!
seal and save
Not sealing your ducts after having them cleaned is like driving through a mud puddle after washing your car.
Aeroseal is a patented technology that seals ducts from within and typically reduces leakage down to 1-2% to improve comfort and provide cleaner indoor air. Every aeroseal service comes with a 10 year warranty backed by manufacturer.
After your Aeroseal service, EZ Green Home will perform another duct test to measure the results and walk you through the rebate process when applicable.

INSULATION AND AIR SEALING
During a Home Performance with Energy Star audit, diagnostic equipment such as a thermal imaging camera help locate opportunities to improve the home’s comfort and energy efficiency through air sealing and insulation. Benefits of these upgrades include:
- Temperature Regulation – making your living environment more enjoyable, especially in places of extreme weather.
- Sound Barrier – protecting your privacy and keeping out unwanted sounds from your home
- Moisture Barrier – keeping unwanted moisture out of your home.
- Reduced Energy Costs – insulation reduces amount of heating and cooling appliances needed to keep your home comfortable
- Energy Efficiency – by using less energy to heat and cool your home, you will reduce your carbon footprint.
Our certified energy specialists can determine exactly where and how much air sealing and insulation is needed in your home with a Home Performance with Energy Star audit.
