Benefits of Duct Sealing

Posted: March 18, 2024

Improve Your Indoor Air & Lower Energy Costs

Like your air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump, your ventilation system also needs regular maintenance. According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems tend to collect a variety of contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria and very small particles of dust that have the potential to affect overall health. The removal of these contaminants from the HVAC system and home should be considered one component in an overall plan to improve indoor air quality, says the NADCA.

At Wilson Oil and Propane, we recommend our Aeroseal duct-sealing service to complete the process after your ducts are clean. If you have duct leaks, you will experience reduced indoor air quality, including excessive dust and allergens. Leaky ducts also compromise system efficiency.

If parts of your ductwork are leaking air, this could increase your annual energy costs by as much as 30%. Your home will also not feel as comfortable as it should be. The quality of your indoor air will also deteriorate.

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.

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.

In fact, Aeroseal has been used in thousands of homes, schools, hospitals, and government installations throughout the country and the world. The U.S. Department of Energy has proclaimed Aeroseal technology to be one of the top 23 most important energy conservation technologies for consumers to be released since the department was first established in 1977.

The process usually takes less than one day to finish and we will provide you with a “Certificate of Completion” that illustrates the before and after results.
