It’s no secret that Arizona residents probably have some of the highest utility bills around the country—it wouldn’t be possible to live comfortably here without the modern convenience of air conditioning, so this is hardly a surprise. However, this doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to keep cool when the mercury rises. Regularly inspecting and maintaining insulation and ductwork in Mesa, AZ is a great way to spot hidden savings opportunities.
To that end, PlumbSmart Plumbing Heating and Air performs this exact task for countless homeowners every year. We even offer maintenance agreements to ensure we routinely check your HVAC system for any issues, so you can feel confident that an expert is regularly looking at your appliances and ductwork.
Insulation is one of those things that’s just “out of sight, out of mind.” You assume it was properly installed when the house was built, and that it could ultimately need replacement… someday. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. There could be costly gaps in your insulation allowing cool air (and your money) to slip right through it to the outside. This is a common problem, which is why our insulation and ductwork inspections in Mesa, AZ are so popular. Our technicians know what problems to look for and where to look for them, and we can fix anything we uncover.
Sealing and cleaning ductwork
Ductwork is another thing that’s just hidden away out of sight, so you typically assume it’s doing the job it was meant to do. However, these metal tubes can develop cracks over time, and might have even had them since they were first installed—you just can’t know for sure until a professional looks them over for any imperfections. Air conditioning repair in Mesa, AZ is one of our key areas of expertise, and ductwork is an integral portion of that. Our technicians can inspect your entire system and seal up any cracks or gaps that have appeared in your ductwork, leading to a tighter system. It’s not uncommon for us to see homes losing 20 or even 50 percent of their conditioned air through these gaps, so this is not a service to avoid.
HVAC maintenance pays for itself
While some people are reluctant to invest money in regular upkeep, the reality is that this work typically pays for itself and then some. Leaky insulation and ductwork in Mesa, AZ are some of the costliest home problems we see—it’s just not as noticeable because it’s hidden in chunks within every monthly utility bill. By having us conduct a free attic insulation and ductwork analysis and then make any necessary adjustments or repairs, you’ll see savings of up to 50 percent on your future utility bills.
