EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Aeroseal, a technology used for sealing leaky ductwork, has been selected as one of the year’s best new home products in This Old House magazine’s Top 100 Best New Products for 2011 awards. Chosen for its impact on home energy savings and comfort, Aeroseal won top honors in the competition’s “home technology” category.

Each year, the editors of This Old House review thousands of home products and ideas that have emerged over the past 12 months and select those that they believe to be the most innovative. With the 2011 launch of a new company dedicated solely to the service and support of the Aeroseal duct sealant technology, the company qualified for the award.

“I’ve been watching the development of the Aeroseal technology and eagerly awaiting its general availability,” said Thomas Baker, building technology editor for This Old House magazine. “Leaky air ducts are responsible for a huge energy loss problem in America and having the Aeroseal solution made available for the first time to many homeowners is very exciting to see.”

Developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with partial funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Aeroseal duct sealant is applied as an aerosol mist that is driven throughout the interior of a home’s duct system. The process causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other until the leak is closed. Studies by the EPA and others have found Aeroseal to be 95 percent effective at sealing air ducts, a result that can save homeowners on average $600 to $850 a year on their home heating and cooling costs.

This Old House is one of America’s biggest and most trusted brands in home improvement and we are honored to be recognized by their expert staff,” said Neal Walsh, vice president of sales and marketing, Aeroseal LLC. “We appreciate their help in educating homeowners about a breakthrough technology that addresses a critical concern in home energy conservation.”
