EMA, Aeroseal Conducting Webinar on Resolving Duct Leakage as an Energy Conservation Measure


For Immediate Release

Contact: Ed Armstrong (EMA) 202 737-1334,

Vicki Auditore (Aeroseal) 937-428-9300 ext 318,

(Washington, DC Aug 10, 2017,)—Everyone agrees duct leakage in commercial buildings is a significant problem leading to wasted energy and increased operational costs. ASHRAE estimates that 75 percent of these buildings suffer 10-25 percent duct leakage. Unfortunately, quantifying the amount of waste and cost makes it difficult to include stopping leakage in a comprehensive energy retrofit plan. Addressing this issue is the topic of an upcoming free webinar.

          Duct Sealing as an Energy Conservation Measure (ECM)

Sponsors: EMA, Aeroseal

When: Sept. 7, 1:30 Eastern Standard Time

Registration Link:

Presenters: Will Pokorny, PE, LEED AP, McKinstry Company, April Lemmert, National Accounts Sales Manager Aeroseal

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the potential energy loss attributable to duct leakage in commercial buildings
  • Learn how to calculate and quantify energy loss due to duct leakage
  • Learn to document and present the elimination of duct leakage as an ECM
  • Learn about the remedies for duct leakage and how they are implemented

Continuing Education Credits: Will be available

Aeroseal® is a provider of duct sealing technology that seals leaks from inside the duct system using a patented non-toxic aerosol mist developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with partial funding from the U.S. Department of Energy. The process has proven to be the most effective, affordable and viable method for sealing leaky ductwork systems in commercial buildings. Once leaks are sealed, fan speed can be reduced dramatically – thereby reducing payback time and increasing energy savings for institutions such as hospitals, labs, universities, K-12 schools and military facilities.

The Energy Management Association is dedicated to providing education, training and certification to energy management professionals on behalf of building owners. Its Energy Management Professional Certification (EMP) features a unique commissioning-based curriculum that maximizes energy efficiency and optimization of building systems.
