Can Aeroseal reduce the noise made by
the return and supply grilles in my home?
A: If the ductwork is poorly designed or installed, not
enough air may be able to pass through
your indoor coil, freezing up your system, and creating a wet,
loud and costly problem. If the
ductwork is undersized, the air travels at a faster rate and creates
noise. If the return grilles
are undersized, the air travels through the grille at a higher
rate of speed and makes noise.

A: Ductwork runs through attics, crawlspaces, basements,
garages, and walls. Leaky return
ducts pull in dust and pollutants, sends them through the furnace,
and then out into the living
area of you home through the supply ducts. Aeroseal can reduce
the amount of leakage by
as much as 90%, reducing dust and other pollutants from entering
