Just 25 miles outside of Toronto, Milton Ontario is Canada’s fastest growing community. When the young Taylor couple bought an 8-year-old house right across from a park and elementary school, they knew this would be the perfect place to start their family. With a new arrival on the way, the Taylors began work on the upstairs nursery. They contacted a local HVAC company to help them solve a major home comfort issue. No matter how high they turned up the furnace, they were unable to adequately heat the upstairs – particularly the soon-to-be nursery. They thought that perhaps the windows were leaking or the walls required more insulation. Maybe the furnace simply wasn’t powerful enough to do the job.
It didn’t take long for the HVAC pros at Atlas Care Heating & Cooling to diagnose the problem – leaky ducts. They also knew the best solution – Aeroseal. A test of the home’s ductwork found the system was losing 464 CFM of treated air – about 40% of what their high-efficiency furnace was producing. It took less than an hour for Aeroseal to seal 90% of the leaks from the inside of the ductwork, reducing total leakage down to 29 CFM. Now, all rooms in the Taylor house are comfortable year round.
