How Duct Sealing can Boost Energy Efficiency

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Do you find yourself paying more than you would like to in order to keep your home comfortable throughout the year? If you have always faced high heating and cooling costs, then it is possible that your HVAC system is of a low efficiency or that it was not properly sized for your home at the time of its installation. However, if you have only recently noticed a climb in your heating and cooling costs, there could be a problem that has recently developed with your system. One such issue may be air leaks or poor connections in your ductwork. Fortunately for your, the Scottsdale energy efficiency service technicians at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning are never more than a phone call away. We offer a number of services which can seriously boost energy efficiency in your home, including professional duct sealing.

A large number of homeowners throughout the area still depend on ducted forced air distribution systems in order to distribute heated and cooled air throughout their homes. There is nothing inherently wrong with this method, of course. Ductwork is actually a very effective means by which to do so. The problem is that ductwork can degrade over time, developing leaks and suffering from loose connections. Because so much of our ductwork is hidden from view, these problems are often compounded by the fact that they are not discovered for some time. If you believe that your HVAC system is not functioning as efficiently as possible, duct sealing may be the solution you’re looking for.

Professional duct sealing can boost energy efficiency by reducing air loss due to leaky ductwork and poor connections. If you think that you can just slap duct tape on your ducts in order to achieve these same results, think again. Only professional technicians can pinpoint the source of the problem accurately and resolve it entirely.

Keeping air in your ductwork, where it belongs, isn’t the only way in which duct sealing can boost energy efficiency, though. Because leaky ductwork can allow airborne pollutants into the system, those pollutants can build up on vital heating and cooling components. This can impede the operation of your heating and cooling systems, dragging down efficiency and driving up energy costs.

By scheduling professional duct sealing in Scottsdale with Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, you can avoid such undesirable situations.

Some Services to Improve Home Energy Efficiency in Chandler, AZ

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Are you looking to improve your energy efficiency this winter, but aren’t sure what kinds of services and products can help? Here are some options to consider:

  • Insulation installation – good insulation makes your home both energy efficient and comfortable year-round; without good insulation, you risk having high energy bills, stressing your heating and cooling system(s) and being uncomfortable. By adding more insulation to your home, or ensuring that the right amount is installed correctly into a new one, you can achieve better energy efficiency and comfort for years to come.
  • Duct sealing – do you have a forced-air system and are seeing the signs of faulty ductwork? Faulty ductwork can account for up to 30% of your home’s total air loss. This kind of air loss can significantly reduce your heating and cooling and drive up your monthly energy bills. Duct sealing can significantly reduce and/or eliminate the problems created by faulty ductwork, restoring a great deal of lost energy to your home.
  • Blower door testing – blower door testing is used by professional home energy auditors to determine the air tightness of your home. A blower door test allows the technician to pinpoint the exact areas of energy loss in your home, and create a plan to remediate the problems.
  • Upgrade your thermostat – are you still using a mercury-based dial thermostat, or even a slide thermostat? You may be missing out on potential savings. By upgrading to a digital, programmable or smart thermostat, you can have better control over your heating through precise temperature-setting and an ability to program (depending on which type of thermostat you choose).
  • Zone control system – a zone control system divides your home into separate zones that heat and cool independent of one another. This allows you to use only the amount of heating or cooling you need, and allows you to turn off heating and cooling to rooms or zones that are unused or unoccupied.
  • Annual maintenance – scheduling annual maintenance for your heating and cooling system(s) is one of the best ways to prevent repairs and increase energy efficiency. The full tune-up your system receives during a routine maintenance appointment allows the system to operate optimally.

As you can see, there are a number of available products and services that can increase your energy efficiency in Chandler. Interested in finding out more?
