Who We Are
Historically, energy savings derived from building envelope enhancements have been challenging to achieve. At the same time, standards for envelope tightness are escalating. AeroBarrier, a new and innovative envelope sealing technology is transforming the way residential, multifamily, and commercial buildings seal the building envelope.
AeroBarrier can help builders meet any IECC, Energy Star, or passive house requirement more consistently and more importantly, more cost-effectively than traditional envelope sealing methods. AeroBarrier is a proprietary technology that takes the guesswork out of sealing the envelope.
We guarantee the results, whether you need 3ACH50 or passive house requirements! AeroBarrier is a first of its kind, cutting-edge envelope sealing technology for commercial, residential and multi-family applications with tested and proven results.
The Aeroseal History
Aeroseal is a patented technology process that seals cracks and holes in new and existing air duct systems. The sealing technology was invented by Dr. Mark Modera, a scientist at the University of California, in 1994.
The technology was developed and tested by Indoor Air Quality scientists within the Indoor Environment Program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The University of California was granted patents in 1996 and 1999, and Aeroseal holds an exclusive license to the technology.
In 1997, the magic began to happen. HVAC contractors officially began using the Aeroseal technology to effectively seal air duct leaks in homes and commercial buildings, and the occupants have been noticing improved comfort, reduced dust/allergens, and lower energy/utility costs ever since.
The Aeroseal sealant has been in use for over twenty years. Once atomized, the sealant is air dried and is deposited principally at the leaks without coating the inside of the ducts.
In 2000, The Department of Energy (DOE) and its Citizen Judges selected the 100 best scientific and technological accomplishments to come out of the 23 years of the DOE’s existence. The Citizen Judges narrowed down the field to the 23 technologies that have the largest potential to save consumers money and improve their quality of life. Aeroseal duct sealing technology was selected to receive both awards.
Upon the arrival of 2017, Aeroseal made some game-changing moves. It celebrated its 20th anniversary and after 4 years of research and development announced its new product AeroBarrier, its breakthrough envelope sealing technology. AeroBarrier, licensed from the University of California at Davis after years of testing by the California Energy Commission and the US Department of Energy, is a cutting-edge envelope sealing technology for commercial, residential, and multi-family applications.
