Why You Should Get a Ductwork Inspection

Posted: August 1, 2022

Improve Your Indoor Air & Lower Energy Costs

If you have a forced-air system, it’s easy to overlook the importance of your air ducts. But the fact remains that your duct system plays a critical role in keeping your home comfortable and your annual energy costs under control

Let’s start with the basics. Your warm-air furnace or central air conditioning system pushes heated or cooled air through the network of air ducts built inside your home so they can reach their exit point: the air vents or registers.

However, if parts of your ductwork deteriorate and start leaking air, harmful pollutants can get distributed through your home. Besides causing poor indoor air quality, ductwork that’s in disrepair will lower the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems, increasing your energy costs by as much as 30%. Your home will also not feel as comfortable as it should be.

Our Solution: Aeroseal Duct Sealing

At Wilson Oil and Propane, we have a proven method to repair leaky ductwork. The Aeroseal process we use is designed to seal the leaks in your duct system—even the ones hidden behind walls and under your home’s insulation. These hidden areas account for about 90% of your total ductwork.

Aeroseal has been used in thousands of homes, schools, hospitals, and government installations throughout the country and the world. The process usually takes less than one day to complete and we will provide you with a “Certificate of Completion” that illustrates the before and after results.

Experience the Benefits of Duct Sealing

Once your ducts are properly sealed, you will save more than just money on energy costs. You will also improve:

  • your comfort: sealing and insulating ducts can help you keep a consistent temperature throughout your home–in any season.
  • your health: sealing ducts can reduce the circulation of fumes, allergens, and other pollutants drawn from inside and outside your home, minimizing allergy, asthma and other respiratory problems.
  • your safety: your gas appliances (water heaters, clothes dryers, furnaces, etc.) can emit carbon monoxide and other gases as they operate. Leaky ductwork can cause backdrafting– which means toxic gases get drawn back into your living space. Duct sealing reduces that risk.

By sealing your ducts, you will also reduce the amount of energy needed to heat or cool your home–and the emissions that come from generating that energy.

Wilson Oil and Propane is an authorized dealer for Aeroseal duct sealing. This advanced technology is considered by most experts to be the premier method for sealing ducts available today!
