Have a Professional Energy Audit Performed
Also referred to as a home energy assessment, this audit helps our professionals determine how much energy your household consumes, and evaluate what measures may be necessary to increase your home’s energy efficiency. A professional audit lets us tell you what problems exist, and how they can be resolved to save you money.
This service is beneficial for both the owners of older homes—which might not have been updated over the years—and newer homes. If you’ve already made some energy-efficient improvements to your living space, that’s great—but it won’t mean a whole lot if you have a leak in your ductwork or poor quality insulation allowing heat to escape in the winter and your AC system to work harder than it should have to in the summer!
Take Care of Your Air Ducts
The ductwork that snakes its way through your home is likely not something you give a lot of thought to—out of sight, out of mind, right? You’d be surprised, however, just how much energy can be wasted due to poorly installed, damaged, or leaky air ducts. In addition to repairing or replacing sections of your ductwork, you’d do well to consider duct testing and sealing services to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Don’t Forget the Importance of Quality Insulation
Insulation is just as vital during the summer as it is in the winter. In the winter time, it keeps heat in. In the summer, it helps to prevent heat from entering your home. Without a sufficient amount of high-quality insulation, your HVAC systems have to work that much harder to do their jobs, increasing your energy bills yet decreasing your level of comfort.
Invest in Routine HVAC Maintenance
Regular preventive AC and heater maintenance is vital to ensuring that these systems work as they should. It’s during this service that our technicians fully inspect your system, and clean it. We will also make any adjustments necessary, and make recommendations for repairs if needed. Tackling smaller repair needs now means avoiding costlier emergencies later.
