Energy Evaluations Mean Good Returns On Your Home Improvement Projects

By now, most everyone knows the importance of an energy efficient heating and cooling system. Not only does it save you money over the long-term, it improves the quality of your indoor air, which leads to a cleaner, healthier living environment for your family. Of course, before you can plan cost-effective home improvements to improve your household energy efficiency, you need to understand the source of your energy issues.

Our whole-house energy evaluations offer an in-depth assessment of your home HVAC system. From your cooling system to your insulation to your ductwork, every factor that could potentially affect system performance is evaluated, allowing for pinpoint accuracy in determining your household efficiency issues. The process, however, starts with a simple consultation.

Before meeting with your technician, consider these issues:

  • Have your energy bills increased for no apparent reason?
  • Does your household temperature remain inconsistent throughout the year?
  • Are you experiencing an excess of dust or other household allergens?
  • Is your humidity sometimes diving to levels considered low even for Yuma, Arizona?

By answering questions such as these, you can provide your HVAC technician with specific information that is relevant to quickly determining the source of your household energy deficiencies.

Here’s what you can expect from our whole-house energy evaluations:

  • Components of your HVAC system will be thoroughly inspected to rule out issues relating to age, improper installation or system neglect.
  • A load calculation will be performed to ensure that your system is sized appropriately for your household.
  • Insulation will be evaluated for adequacy using technology such as thermal imaging.
  • Flow hoods can be used to ensure the proper configuration of your ductwork, and duct blowers can be used to pressurize your ducts and assess any possible leakage.
  • Similar to a duct blower, a blower door can pressurize your entire home, and reveal unwanted air leakage.

Before you spend money on home improvements that simply mask the symptoms of your household energy inefficiencies, let the NATE-certified technicians at Hansberger Refrigeration and Electric Company help you get to the source of the issue.
