Your insulation and your HVAC system go hand-in-hand. They complement one another, and it's nearly impossible to keep a home comfortable with only one of the two working.
Bird Family Insulation tests and balances HVAC duct systems, then we seal and insulate ducts, add HVAC returns and seal registers. We often combine this duct work with new attic insulation, and we can get the whole job done in 1-2 days!
You'll enjoy a much more comfortable home that is no longer wasting energy by pumping heated or cooled air into the wrong places. Call us today for an evaluation of your duct system.
Over 80% of U.S. households waste significant amounts of energy through leaky ducts. In fact, studies show that these faulty duct systems send 30% or more of their conditioned air – intended for living spaces – into the attic, crawl space or basement. Leaky ducts result in hot and cold rooms and zones in your house, and poor indoor air quality.
Most homes suffer from poor duct design that dates back to the original construction of the house. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that this problem causes an average of 30% waste in homeowner utility bills. Duct repair and redesign is a dirty job, but Bird Family Insulation is set up to do it.
Out of balance duct systems are all too common. Most homeowners in the Atlanta area don't know this is the case – and if they do know, it's hard to find a solution. Let us help you understand why this is a problem and what you can do about it!
It is very common for HVAC companies to install oversized heating and air conditioning equipment to compensate for any errors they may have made in their sizing calculations. No company wants to be called back on the hottest days of the year because their client isn't comfortable.
A Flowhood test will tell you two very important things:
1. If your air-ducts are properly sized to match your equipment.
2. If your air-ducts are balanced. The air-flow through the Supply air-ducts should match or be at least within 10% of the air-flow through the Return air-ducts.
