Aeroseal Used in 'Not So Big' Showhouse


Priority Energy Brings Aeroseal Duct Sealing Technology to Not So Big® Showhouse for Maximum Comfort and Efficiency

Priority Energy uses patented Aeroseal technology to seal leaky air ducts in Not So Big® Showhouse to attain maximum heating and cooling comfort, better indoor air quality and utility costs that are 40% less than those of an average new home.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 27, 2011 -- Priority Energy, the Chicago-based energy solutions company, will
make this unique Showhome even more appealing by adding to its comfort, efficiency and sustainability with
their newly acquired Aeroseal duct sealing technology. This award-winning system, while lowering the home’s
estimated utility costs by approximately 40%, will also greatly enhance the comfort level of each room. By
sealing any air leaks in the ductwork, air flow will be more evenly distributed throughout the house which
means added comfort and less strain on the furnace. In addition, theAeroseal process will ensure better indoor
air quality by reducing the entry of dust, mold, and odors seeping in from the outside. The Not So Big®
Showhouse, designed by Sarah Susanka, FAIA, acclaimed architect and bestselling author of The Not So Big
House series will feature all the hallmarks of Susanka’s Not So Big design, combined with the latest state-ofthe-
art elements.

“Most people don’t realize thirty cents or more of every $1 they spend on heating and cooling is wasted due to
leaky ducts,” says Rob Schildgen, owner and founder of Priority Energy. “Unfortunately, leaky air duct systems
are common in new construction causing significantly higher heating and cooling costs, usually hot or cold
rooms and poorindoor air quality. After all, the efficiency of a furnace is dependent on the efficiency of the
furnace and the air duct system delivering the warm air to various rooms. For years, there was no real fix for
leaky air ducts but with Aeroseal, we finally have a scientific product that actually fixes the problem for
homeowners who may struggle to keep a room or part of the home warm in the winter.” By using Aeroseal to
seal the air ducts in this house, the home will not only have lower utility bills, but will have the substantial
added comfort of even heat distribution and better air quality. Plus there will be lower emissions going into the

A New Model for Today’s Lifestyle
For more than ten years, Susanka has been highly regarded for her “build better, not bigger” approach to
residential architecture. Now more than ever, with the current housing crisis, Susanka’s leadership in house and
community design is in high-demand. “In today’s new economic reality, Not So Big principles offer a new vision for the home of the future – not too
big and not too small, but just right for this budget-conscious, sustainability minded era. The Not So Big
Showhouse will give homeowners and professionals an unprecedented opportunity to actually experience what
Not So Big is all about – from the context of the broader community, right down to the details and products
featured within each space,” said Susanka.

The Showhouse emphasizes the hallmarks of Not So Big: quality and character, comfort and beauty, energy
efficiency and sustainability. Gone are the unused formal spaces. The remaining spaces are tailored to fit
today’s more informal lifestyles. In short, the Showhouse is designed for the way people really live with design
and details that transform a house into “Home.”

The Showhouse will be released for sale on the grand opening weekend, November 19. In addition, three other
versions of Susanka’s design for SchoolStreet are available to interested buyers, each featuring a unique
exterior street face. The Not So Big Showhouse is approximately 2,450 square feet.

About Aeroseal
Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a patented technology that seals air ducts from the inside out. The process puts
escaping air under pressure and causes polymer particles to stick first to the edges of a leak, then to each other
until the leak is closed. Aeroseal was developed in the 1990’s at U.C. Berkeley and has been installed in over
75,000 homes and buildings. The Aeroseal technology has won numerous awards over the years, including the
“Energy 100” award from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the “Best of What’s New” award
from Popular Science. For more information, go to Aeroseal/PE.
