Can Duct Sealing Help with Allergies?

Posted: July 1, 2024

Leaky Ducts Let Allergens into Your Home

It is estimated that more than 50 million people in the U.S. have allergies. But if you’re particularly sensitive, every day can be considered allergy season, especially if you react to such triggers as dust mites, mold and pet dander.
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

That’s because 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.

Reduce Allergens in Your Home

That’s one reason we strongly recommend our Aeroseal duct-sealing service. If you have duct leaks, you will experience reduced indoor air quality, caused by excessive dust and other allergens circulating around your home.

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

What Does Aeroseal Duct Sealing Include?

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.

Duct sealing will improve:

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!
