When Should I Schedule Duct Sealing?

Monday, July 24th, 2017

ducts-in-atticDuct sealing is a professional service that closes up gaps and leaks along the ductwork of a home’s ventilation system. And we have to emphasize professional: this isn’t a job an amateur can handle with a roll of duct tape. Duct tape isn’t even designed to work on ducts and won’t work at creating lasting seals. Professionals must use special equipment to find all the leaks and then use sealants and metallic tapes to restore the airtight seal along the ductwork.

There are a number of times when we recommend you schedule duct sealing in Mills River, NC. You can call us to arrange for this service and we’ll be glad to put you on the schedule. (more…)

Saving Money with a Home Energy Audit

Monday, June 12th, 2017

house-surrounded-by-rainbowWhen you hear “audit,” do you think about taxes? Most people do, and the word is definitely a bit scary in that sense. But there are many positive ways to use to word audit. It simply means “an official inspection by an independent body.” And there are parts of everyone’s life that could all use a review from an outside professional at some point.

This is what a home energy audit in all about. It’s a thorough inspection of how your home uses energy, from the insulation to the ductwork and appliances, done by experienced professionals. Although you can find some online guidelines for dong a home energy audit on your own, this isn’t recommended. It takes technicians who have the right equipment for testing a home’s thermal envelope and the training necessary to analyze the results. Professional auditors ensure you receive the right advice for how to improve your home energy performance. Call our team today to schedule a home energy audit. (more…)
