Aeroseal LLC has acquired Comfort Institute, a provider of home performance equipment and training for the HVAC industry. As a business unit of Aeroseal, Comfort Institute will continue to provide its current service offerings while adding additional services. The merger will improve Aeroseal dealers’ sales and duct renovation capabilities and provide additional opportunities in the home performance market.
“Aeroseal duct sealing technology has dramatically changed the way our industry thinks about home comfort, IAQ and energy savings, while Comfort Institute was the first to train and equip HVAC professionals to succeed in the growing home performance contracting sector,” said Aeroseal CEO and president, Amit Gupta. “Through this merger, we will now have the added expertise and resources to provide the HVAC community an entirely new level of service and support.”
Comfort Institute’s main facility, warehouse and offices will be relocated to Centerville, OH. For more information on duct sealing, see Duct Leakage Under Scrutiny in the September/October 2011 HPAC magazine.
