The EPA's Duct Investor calculator*
states that sealing ductwork with 30%
leakage down to 2% in a 3-ton system,
can save 300 trees a year.
We found considerable duct leakage
and aerosealed your neighbor's home.
They sealed the leaks, saving precious
energy and doing their part to create
a greener neighborhood.
