When is it time to get a Repair?
An improperly working air conditioner not only does a poor job of keeping your home or office cool, but can also lead to costly energy bills, and even be potentially hazardous to your health.
Some signs it’s time to repair your AC include:
- Your AC is making odd noises
- Water is leaking from the indoor unit
- The AC is forming ice or frost
- The AC is running in short cycles
- There is no cool air running from the vents
- The unit is not blowing any air at all
Investing in regular maintenance will ensure your home is running efficiently and safely. Without proper maintenance you could be running up utility bills, spending more on future repairs, or even have to replace an entire unit.
Keep your system running at maximum potential
Prevent costly future repairs
Air Quality Control
Air-tight, well insulated homes can actually contain 3-5 times more pollutants than outdoor air. It is extremely important to have proper filtration and ventilation in your home at all times.
What we do:
Air-Filtration – removes nanoparticles such as pollen, mold spores, and pet dander which cause aggravated allergies
Humidifiers – Control humidity at your disposal to give you personal comfort and provide protection for your furniture, hard wood floors, electronics (reduce static electricity which damages electronics).
Fresh Air Filters – Remove cooking, pet and chemical odors by expelling them to the outdoors.
Zoning and Programmable Thermostats – Compartmentalize rooms in your home to cater to everyone’s comfort.
What is Blower Door Testing?
A blower door is a powerful fan that mounts into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings. The auditors may use a smoke pencil to detect air leaks. These tests determine the air infiltration rate of a building.
Cut energy consumption due to air leaks in your home
Prevent moisture condensation issues
Eliminate drafts caused by warm air leaking in from the outdoors
Reduce the number of air pollutants entering your home
Air Duct Sealing
Many homes with forced-air cooling systems require ducts to transport and distribute cool air to different parts of your home. However, roughly 25 percent of the air moving through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.
A properly sealed ducting system will ensure your system is running more comfortable, efficient, and safe. Depending on how your system was originally installed, it could be a small or large job.
We use thermographic imaging to detect thermal defects and air leakage in construction envelopes. Thermography measures surface temperatures by using infrared video and still cameras. This equipment can detect light that is within the heat spectrum. Imaging can show temperature variations of the building’s skin, ranging from white (warm regions) to black (cooler areas). The results help the auditor determine whether insulation is needed. They also serve as a quality control tool, to ensure that insulation has been installed correctly.
Smart Home Integration
Smart hubs are designed to control multiple devices, even ones from different manufacturers. A high quality system will integrate every compatible electronic in your home into a single, seamless home automation experience, and offer consolidated controls within a single app. This provides for simple, seamless accessibility and controllability.
