What to Expect During an Attic or Crawl Space Inspection


When you have your attic or crawl space inspected by us there are a few different things we look for. Good insulation will ensure that you aren’t paying extra for heating and cooling. We’ll also inspect pipes, vents, and HVAC systems for damage.


Pipes and vents

If you are having heating, cooling, or plumbing issues, it could be starting above or below your house in the pipes, vents, and duct work. During our inspection, we’ll look over all the pipes and ducts in these areas to ensure there are no problems. If we do find issues, it is best to get them fixed sooner rather than later so you can avoid a bigger problem down the road.

Insulation

We’ll make sure you have adequate insulation in both your attic and crawlspace. If you don’t have good insulation, you could be paying a lot more for heating and cooling than you need to. We can provide recommendations to make your home more energy efficient.

Pests

No one likes dealing with pests and they can really cause a lot of damage. Pests tend to gravitate towards crawlspaces, attics, and other out of the way areas you probably don’t frequently use. We’ll be sure to inspect for damage from pests so these issues can be taken care of.


Knowing what to look for and trying to remember the maintenance you need to do can be a challenge. That’s why we offer such plans as our energy savings maintenance agreement. This plan will maintain your heating and cooling systems, includes a plumbing inspection, attic and crawl space inspection, and a courtesy water heater flush to ensure we find any potential problems. Our plans can include 2 visits per year for up to 3 years, 1 visit in the spring and 1 visit in the fall. Learn more about us and the services we offer!

Why You Should Switch to a High-Efficiency Air Conditioner

The official first day of Summer season is right around the corner, and the outside temperatures have definitely made us aware of this. With the rising temperatures you may want to consider an air conditioning upgrade for your home. During the hottest days of Summer your air conditioning unit is going to be working hard to keep your home cool, and having a high-efficiency air conditioning unit will help you stay comfortable in your home. A high-efficiency air conditioning will do more than allow you to stay comfortable and cool in your home, keep reading to learn about the benefits that high-efficiency air conditioners have to offer you.

1.Saves On Energy Bills

One of the biggest benefits to having a high-efficiency air conditioning unit is that you will save dramatically on your energy bill. When you install a new high-efficiency air conditioner your SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) will increase. This means you will be consuming less energy during the peak seasons of Summer because a high-efficiency air conditioning unit uses less energy to produce superior cooling results, therefore, the amount you pay on your monthly energy utility bill will be much less compared to what you usually pay.

2.Overall Cooling

High-efficiency air conditioning units can provide you with improved cooling performance. Have you ever noticed that one or more of your rooms doesn’t get or stay as cool as some areas of the house? This is very common with units such as swamp coolers, if you have noticed this happening, it may be time to upgrade to a high-efficiency model. High-efficiency units will adequately deliver controlled air to every space in your house, you will also notice less occurrences in swings of temperature.

3.Longer Life

A big benefit to having a high-efficiency air conditioner is that it will be a great long term investment. High-efficiency air conditioners have longer overall lifespans than your typical unit. This is because high-efficiency units are designed to have less on and off cycling while operating. Along with saving money on your energy bill, you will be saving on repairs as well. High-efficiency units don’t tend to need many repairs because of the way they are built to operate (less turning on and off). The energy saving technology of a high-efficiency model will help your unit last for at least a decade, if not longer.
