When was the last time you looked in your attic? Were the ducts grey and falling apart? If your home was built in the 70’s, 80’s, or early 90’s, there is a good chance your ducts could be in poor shape. A-Plus specializes in perfecting the art of sealing the duct system, keeping air from being drawn in from the attic or from blowing inadvertently into the attic. Replacement of faulty, older, grey ducts or bad duct board ducts that are falling apart also enhances air flow throughout your home or business.
A-Plus Energy Audit & Weatherization
Our goal is to make sure that the air that flows through your home at the register grille remains the same temperature as when it was “made” by the air conditioner. We help you make sure that you are not heating and cooling your attic or that you are not sucking air from the attic into your home. Having a “tight”, insulated duct system reduces the time your air conditioner has to run and also reduces your operation cost. Other benefits include having a healthier home because there are fewer pollutants brought in from the outside and living in a safer environment because gas appliance have less of a tendency to back-draft carbon monoxide into your home. Sealing the ducts is the first step to improve overall performance. If you have rooms that heat and cool unevenly, you should also have the air balanced or different areas of your building zoned with different thermostats. Many utility companies give rebates for getting this work done.
