We offer several energy efficient solutions to help improve the comfort of your home and to help reduce energy costs. We test and analyze not only your heating and air conditioning system, but your entire home, and are often able to save homeowners up to 45% on their existing utility bills, when our recommendations are implemented. In addition, we partner with several utility companies in our area that assist in the cost of making the energy improvements to your home. Often these rebates are thousands of dollars. Contact us to find out what the current incentives are. A brief explanation of a few of our energy efficient solutions is detailed below.

Air Seal Duct System
A duct system that is well-designed and properly sealed can make your home more comfortable, energy efficient and safer for your family. In a typical home, about 20 to 30% of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes and poorly connected ducts. The end result is higher utility bills, uncomfortable rooms and dirty, unhealthy air. With our air duct sealing process, we test your homes duct system with a duct blaster. This test tells us how much the duct system is leaking and where the air could possibly be leaking out. We quantify how much the duct system is leaking before any work is completed and then test again after the work is completed to verify the amount of reduction.
Many duct systems leak in excess of 20 – 30%, and in many cases the existing duct work is original to the home. With many homes in excess of 30 years old, often times the insulation is falling off of the metal duct pipes, and we find that the duct work was not sealed during the original installation. Technology and building science have changed significantly over the last two decades. Many systems were properly installed 20 years ago, but we have learned so much and have the ability to test duct systems with new tools and technologies, we have the ability to install a nearly air tight duct system today. After seeing the large air leakage and installation issues when testing the duct system, many homeowners decide to replace their old duct system, with a new properly designed and air tight duct system. Replacing the duct system will significantly reduce utility bills, substantially improve the homes air quality by delivering cleaner healthier air, and makes their home more comfortable.
