Energy Saving Services

You can dramatically reduce your utility bill each month by improving the energy efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system.

 

The services we offer that can help you save include:

 

Energy Audits

 

If you’re interested in making upgrades but aren’t exactly sure what needs to be done, this is the best place to start. Our standard audit is a free walkthrough that allows us to take a look at everything from your current insulation to ductwork to high efficiency air conditioners. We’ll be able to explain to you what upgrades can be made, as well as provide you with an estimate for completing them. In addition to our free walkthrough, we offer:

 

Home Performance

 

This group of tests will check and measure temperature fluctuations between entry and exit air, individual vent temperatures, total house air leakage, ductwork leakage, proper airflow delivery and ductwork sizes. The purposes of these tests are to identify any HVAC performance issues, as well as assess a home’s overall efficiency. In addition to performing the entire group, tests can also be conducted on an individual basis.

 

Air Balancing

 

It’s common for homes to have rooms that are consistently hotter or colder than the rest of the house. Air balancing corrects the issue through the use of balancing dampers that can be adjusted to properly regulate airflow. In some cases, ductwork may also need to be repaired or expanded. This service can eliminate hot or cold spots that are running up your utility bill, as well as ensure you’re always comfortable in every part of your home.

 

Ductwork Sealing and Repair

 

One of the biggest sources of wasted energy is conditioned air leaking out or unconditioned air infiltrating your home. We can identify the sources of these problems with a blower door and duct leakage test. We’ll then address the problem by sealing old ductwork and replacing old weather stripping.

 

Insulation

 

Of all the areas in a home, it’s common for the attic to experience the highest temperatures. The reason quality insulation is so important is because it can prevent the hot air that accumulates in this area from being pushed down into the rest of a home. Our thorough approach to insulating attics prevents efficiency from being lost or wasted. This single improvement can noticeably decrease how often the AC needs to run.

 

Solar Screens

 

A common misconception is that the only way to make windows energy efficient is to replace them. The truth is that’s not always necessary. We provide solar film and solar screens, depending upon a customer’s preference, for windows that can prevent sunlight from overheating your home. This addition to windows can also help protect interior items like furniture from sun fading.

 

Weather Stripping

 

Cooled or heated air can escape through any area of your home’s exterior that isn’t properly sealed. This reduces your home’s efficiency and increases utility costs. It can also allow dust and other contaminants into your home. Our professional weather stripping service can improve efficiency and air quality by addressing points of vulnerability.
