We test the whole house to diagnose why. The high bills could be due to leaks in the air ducts, air leaks through openings or gaps/cracks in the building envelope, poor insulation, a wrongly installed or wrong sized system or more. Through the testing we will find out why.
We find the source of the drafts and get it handled. Whether it is as simple as air gaps around doors or a cumulative effect from various sources. We will locate them and seal them up so it is no longer a problem for you and your family.
Most heating and ac systems have been without proper maintenance for years and have as a result gone down in efficiency. This results in higher energy usage as well as poor system performance. Our team is trained in diagnosing and correcting these problems.
Most of the time people immediately think of cleaning their ducts when they think of fixing poor indoor air quality. This solution sounds great but WILL NOT WORK ALONE!
Here is the deal: your ducts are a common source of poor indoor air quality. But why?..... it's because the ducts leak and/or there are pressure differentials going on in the home that create a “Vacuum Sweeper” condition that pulls unwanted junk into the inside air from the crawl space, attic, walls; you name it. These are the sources of poor indoor air quality and the name of the game here is TESTING.
We must test in order to find out what is happening and discover where the problem areas are. Remember air is invisible and making assumptions about the problem are just that; assumptions and hunches. Use Airsmiths Testing to truly find out and establish a remedy that will FIX the problem for good.
This is one of the primary sources for high energy bills and lowered comfort
If your insulation is not installed right you might be experiencing problems. Handling this will result in lowered energy bills and increased comfort throughout your house. Airsmiths can perform an Infrared Scan throughout the entire home to determine whether your insulation is performing properly.
Too much humidity, water pooling, and other problems can be solved with installing vapor barriers, proper drainage and/or dehumidification solutions. If these problems are allowed to persist they can become extremely damaging to a home's structure.
Get your home inspected by one of our certified technicians if you think these problems exist.
