" I KEEP LOOKING UP AT THE STARS, WONDERING IF THERE IS SOMEONE OUT THERE  LOOKING BACK AT US AND ASKING THEMSELVES THE SAME QUESTION."

" I KEEP LOOKING UP AT THE STARS, WONDERING IF THERE IS SOMEONE OUT THERE  LOOKING BACK AT US AND ASKING THEMSELVES THE SAME QUESTION."

There is actually two huge anouncements here. The first is that after a complicated, lengthy, process of filling out paperwork and going to meetings  ECS-AEROSEAL was accepted as a vendor for the HES program with EVERSOURCE and UNITED ILLUMINATING. We started this process in October and we were accepted in December. We expect to be actively doing audits starting in late January. There will be in the HES section of this website a place to sign up and schedule an energy audit with us. The second big announcement is that the HES program and it's partners Eversource, United Illuminating,Energize CT, CEEF (Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund), Connecticut Green Bank, CHIF (Connecticut Housing Investment Fund), etc. have endorsed and accepted Aeroseal as an effective, safe, and sustainable metheod for duct sealing. We have been working with the HPwES (Home Performance with Energy Star) program for the past year but now we are in the program statewide and fully endorsed. We will also be working with other HES vendors to give them access to our Aeroseal capability.

We are aligned with the Connecticut Green Bank and Connecticut Housing Investment Fund which will allow us to now offer financing for all energy efficient measures form furnace replacement to insulation and yes for duct sealing with Aeroseal. We can offer interests rates as low as 0% with the payments directly through your electric bill.  Visit our HES page and contact us  to find out more.

 FIRST ANNUAL AEROSEAL SUCCESS SUMMIT 

 A new building envelope sealing technology designed to seal the outer shell of homes and buildings was unveiled at the first annual Aeroseal Success Summit. According to Aeroseal, the new technology is the first automated system used to effectively find and seal air leaks in building structures.

The technology’s unveiling was one of several announcements made at the Aeroseal Success Summit, a three-day event attended by more than 200 Aeroseal dealers and Comfort Institute members from across the U.S. and Canada. The new envelope sealing technology was introduced by Dr. Mark Modera. According to Modera, the new technology could be available for commercial use later next year.

Also showcased at the Success Summit was a new duct sealing system from Aeroseal called Mobile PRO. Combining the flexibility of Aeroseal’s new wireless duct sealing system with a pre-assembled equipment trailer, Mobile PRO is designed for fast and simple setup of each duct sealing job.The operation can be operated and managed with a wireless tablet.According to Aeroseal, the new Mobile PRO system can increase productivity by 30 percent or more, saving time and increasing profitability.

Another big announcement came during the first breakfast get-together when we learned that Aeroseal and BPI had joined in a strategic partnership The basic takeaway is that these two powerhouses have now joined forces to secure the first undisputed leadership position in the emerging home performance market.

Aeroseal LLC, the owner and licensee of aeroseal duct sealing technology has acquired Comfort Institute (CI), a leading provider of home performance equipment and training for the HVAC industry. The acquisition combines the two organization’s expertise to immediately create the HVAC industry’s most complete and authoritative outlet for home performance training and ongoing professional support. Because of this alliance the convention had almost 3 days of very informative and helpful workshops. 

“The summit delivered exactly what we hoped to get from the event,” said ECS’s Tucker Henne, who made the trip from Connecticut. One of the most valuable aspects of the conference was just having the opportunity to speak with other Aeroseal dealers from around the country. I picked up lots of great ideas and feel pumped for a great year ahead.”

 

 

 

This is the First Blog

"Words build bridges to unexplored regions"

"Words build bridges to unexplored regions"

This is the first blog. Ultimately this will take the form of a newsletter but because we are in the throes of creation (neither website or newsletter are complete) this first couple will be in the form of a blog. One of the reasons for this is that so much has occurred in a short amount of time that I need to put some of it to paper. Eventually this will become more of a site to give and receive feedback from our customers, employees, and our HVAC partners. And in turn less of site for announcements which the newsletter will take on. But for now....
