Energy Efficiency Extras
It’s often said that “it’s all about the details” in life. At BNG Heating & Cooling, we couldn’t agree more when it comes to providing great heating and air conditioning service. Many of our customers know to take good care of their HVAC systems, but there are a few “extra” things that also make for a comfortable and energy efficient home, including proper insulation, crawl space weatherization, and air duct cleaning!
Insulation is the hidden hero of temperature control, providing both short and long-term energy savings. Though many think of it as a blanket for your home in winter, insulation is just as important in cooling season as in heating season!
On average, they say the return on low-cost efficiency upgrades like these are valued at 2.2 times greater than your original cost!
Choosing your insulation depends on your home and climate, but employing an HVAC professional ensures that your insulation will be done with hot and cold air in mind.
At BNG, we specialize in blown cellulose insulation, which can be applied to new and old homes and features the highest recycled content of any insulation, a double win for environmental concerns.
Crawl Space Weatherization
Your crawl space is one of the most underestimated areas in your home when it comes to comfort and indoor air quality. They are naturally cold and humid environments, so sealing and insulation are important steps to stop cold drafts, unpleasant odors, and moisture from entering the living spaces.
Crawl space weatherization generally includes installation of heavy plastic throughout the space, insulating the box sills with foam, and may include adding a dehumidification device, sump pump, or other units as needed.
Through July 31, 2016, BNG will be offering $250 off of crawl space weatherization!
Air Duct Cleaning
Cleaning your air ducts is more than just sweeping out debris from the duct itself, but also addresses every component air passes over, including coils and the central system.
A thorough cleaning can yield long-term energy savings. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers have found that dirty coils and blowers in commercial buildings can cut efficiency by as much as 40 percent!
Like changing your oil, when your system is cleaning out regularly, you’ll never notice a problem. But if you start to neglect regular HVAC maintenance tasks, your system has to work harder, leading to higher utility bills and potentially trouble down the road.
