Nearly all ductwork is leaky – providing lots of little ‘off ramps’ for contagions under pressure. On the return side of ventilation, this effectively spreads contaminated air rather than maintaining strict airflow control for ideal filtration. Let’s not abdicate control. See how:
CES is the exclusive Kentucky dealer of Aeroseal, a patented technology created by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory that seals ductwork from the inside out to reduce 90% of leakage, eliminate the need for costly tear out of ceilings and walls, and eliminate the need for accessibility.
HVAC systems can leak as much as 30% of air into unoccupied space. Duct leakage can increase heating and cooling costs and double fan energy use. According to ASHRAE, a 20% leakage can increase fan energy use by 95%. Duct leakage is also linked to poor indoor air quality, poor humidity control, spread of mold, and health hazards such as sick building disease.
• Solves energy consumption and air quality issues without large capital expenditure
• Investment recovery in 3-7 years
• Increases (often by 80-90%) ability to respond to higher cooling or heating needs due to increased occupancy
• Requires minimal disruption to business operations, essential in hospitals and hotels
Aeroseal has a proven record of improvements to HVAC system performance in a variety of building types and industries.

“We understand that in a medical environment, concerns over the health of workers and patients is paramount. We also know that expensive and sensitive equipment cannot in any way be affected by the duct sealing process. Now that Aeroseal has been employed at a growing list of prestigious health care facilities, its safe use in even the most sensitive facilities is being proven every day.”
“In order for a hospital to be clean, you have to manage the building’s airflow. By aerosealing the exhaust shafts we ensured that the right amount of stale and potentially infectious air is being adequately and continually removed from the building.”
