Aeroseal was recognized for excellence in product design in the 11th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. An independent panel of contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 92 entries. The company’s HomeSeal System was the Silver Award Winner in the HVAC High Efficiency Residential Equipment Category. The ACHR News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration industries.
News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, "These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions."
“We designed the HomeSeal system to make residential duct sealing a fast and easy process for a HVAC professionals and others familiar with basic duct system scenarios,” said Amit Gupta, president of Aeroseal LLC. “The fact that HomeSeal stood out among nearly a hundred other entrants really highlights the significant impact that it can have on helping HVAC businesses succeed and grow.”
“The HVAC industry is evolving at an unprecedented rate and contractors have choices to make. One of them is to continue to simply sell equipment with shrinking margins, or expand their offerings to meet the needs of today’s homeowners,” said Tom Piscitelli, leading HVAC industry consultant. “Aeroseal duct sealing is a perfect example of a value-added service that can offer real growth opportunities. Adding Aeroseal as a component of a home performance solution or as a stand-alone remedy to comfort issues and high energy costs provides immediate benefits to the homeowner.”
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 21, 2014 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals.
The new HomeSeal duct sealing solution represents a total redesign of the current duct sealing equipment used by licensed Aeroseal dealers. The more compact model, designed specifically for residential duct sealing projects, reduces the number of components and connections used to set up the equipment. The entire assembly is now integrated into a single portable unit that makes it faster and easier then ever to set up, use and put away.
