Aeroseal is an effective, professional-grade duct sealant popular for sealing HVAC ducts from the inside. If your HVAC technician plans on using Aeroseal to repair your home’s HVAC ducts, you may have some lingering questions about the process, safety, and use of Aeroseal in your home. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions about Aeroseal duct sealing so you can feel informed and confident about the process.

How Long Does Aeroseal Last?

When you decide to use Aeroseal in your home, it isn’t a quick fix. Although the product comes with an impressive 10-year warranty from the manufacturer, it has been durability tested to last more than 40 years. This means that you won’t have to worry about having to go through the process again in a few years.

Is Aeroseal Safe?

Aeroseal is a safe way to repair ducts. It is certified nontoxic by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is also UL approved. Aeroseal is used in large medical facilities, such as the Mayo Clinic, because it is a safe option to seal ducts.

Does Aeroseal Have an Odor?

If you have a family member with asthma or allergies, you may be concerned about adding a chemical odor to your home. When Aeroseal is first applied, there is a mild odor you may notice that smells like glue. Within a few hours, the smell is gone. If you would prefer to avoid the smell completely, you can plan to leave your home for a few hours after installation to run errands while the smell dissipates.
