Learn How to Find Air Leaks in Your Home

Air leaks in your Grand Traverse County home result in higher utility bills, less comfort and more wear on your HVAC systems. When outdoor air infiltrates your home during the summer and winter, your furnace or A/C must work harder to compensate, increasing energy costs and causing cold or hot spots in your home. 


Signs Your Ductwork Has Seen Better Days

Your Grand Traverse County home’s ductwork is an essential component of your heating, cooling, and ventilation system. Air ducts left to age and wear out become defective and cause a whole host of problems including increased energy costs, poor quality indoor air, and spotty, inconsistent indoor heating and cooling. If you suspect that defective ductwork is costing you, take note of the following procedures, signs, and fixes.


Utility Bills too High? Schedule an Energy Audit to Find and Fix Wasteful Areas

NATE’s Revised Exam: Keeping Your HVAC Tech at the Top of His Game

If you’re not familiar with HVAC-related terms, such as condensing, ERV and HRV, R410A, mini-split, MERV and blower door, or with how these systems, components, ratings and tests save energy and increase home comfort, you can rest assured that, with rigorous testing and ongoing education from NATE’s revised exam, your NATE-certified technician will know these terms inside and out, and provide exceptional service and installation.


The Blower Door: A Basic Component of Your Home Energy Evaluation

A home energy audit is great for finding ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home, and a blower door test is a major component of it. Blower door tests  are used to check how airtight your home is. Having an airtight home helps lower your energy bills by reducing the amount of conditioned air that escapes. It also helps avoid issues with cold drafts and moisture problems due to condensation.
