Duct Efficiency Test (Duct Blower)
- Reduce energy consumption due to air leakage
- Diminish potential condensation problems
- Increase comfort by reducing drafts and eliminating air leaking out of your home
A Duct Efficiency Test is performed utilizing a Duct Blower. This device can accurately measure
the tightness of the duct system. Duct leakage is directly related to energy waste. The EPA states
"Typical duct systems loose 25% to 40% of the heating and cooling energy put out by the central
furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner". With the knowledge we have today, a properly sealed
duct system should have no more than 10% leakage.

Proper insulation is key to keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Adding insulation in your attic is an effective way to cut your heating and cooling bills.

Water Saving Measures
A low flow showerhead typically flows at 2.0 gallons per minute, where a non low flow shower
head flows on an average of 4 to 8 gallons per minute. Replacing your showerhead to a
low flow showerhead will use less hot water, which lowers your electric bill,
due to the fact your water heater runs less. You will also use less water which lowers your water bill.
