Improve Your Insulation

The great thing about insulation is that it serves to keep your home energy efficient all year long, not just during the time of the year in which you are running your air conditioning system. Not only does insulation keep heat out of your home, after all; it also prevents desirable heat from escaping your home during the heating season, brief and mild as that season may be. If you do not have sufficient insulation installed in your home, or if your insulation is damaged, it is not going to be able to prevent the right amount of unwanted heat transfer into or out of your home.

Schedule a Blower Door Test

A major player in the inefficiency game is the envelope of your home. If there are a lot of air leaks throughout your house, or spots which are insufficiently insulated, then you are going to experience a lot of energy waste as you attempt to heat and cool your home throughout the year. The good news is that we offer blower door testing services, designed to pinpoint any such weak spots throughout your home. If any are found, we’ll have the information necessary to resolve the issue successfully.

Have Your Air Ducts Sealed

The most common option for whole-house cooling is the split central air conditioner, which uses air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout the home. If these air ducts are not well-sealed, though, a lot of the air that you pay to cool will not make it to its intended destination. Professional air duct sealing can help you to overcome any such problems.
