Home Energy Services in Savannah, GA

Home Energy Services in Hilton Head Island, SC & Savannah, GA

Sometimes known simply as HVAC, heating, ventilation and air conditioning are extremely important to a home's comfort, efficiency and safety. When we perform an energy audit or assessment on a home, we are looking at how air and heat move throughout the living spaces. When we notice areas that handle your heat or air ineffectively, we recommend measures to help you gain control. The first step to gaining control is sealing up air leaks and ensuring that insulation is effective across the entire thermal barrier to the outside. Once a home's envelope is sealed and insulated we focus on the mechanical side of things--the home's heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Air Conditioning

Keeping your home cool isn't just about pumping as much cool are in as possible. It's about making sure you have the right system for your specific home and making sure that cool, expensive air goes where you want it to. A home with too much AC will often feel cool and clammy, as the unit pumps in too much cool air without pulling enough moisture out of the air. You will also pay more for a more powerful system. If a system is too small, you will also end up paying more for less comfort. An overworked system is less efficient and more susceptible to a break down. We can help you size your system and get the most out of the energy that goes into cooling the air, bring you comfort for less!

Ventilation

It is important for your ventilation, which includes your ductwork, to be clean and well sealed. When we talk about comfort, health and efficiency, your ventilation plays a big role. Clean ventilation and ductwork contributes to a healthy living environment by keeping your indoor air clean and fresh. Sealing your ventilation and ducts properly means more of your conditioned air reaches you lived in spaces, which means your heating and cooling systems do not need to work as hard. This saves you money in operating costs, increases your comfort and increases the life spans of your systems.

Heating

Much like air conditioning, heating starts at the building envelope to ensure that the heat generated makes as big an impact as possible. Once the system as a whole is efficient, we look to your heating equipment to see if it is able to provide optimal comfort within that system. If it can, great! Efficiency and comfort has been enhanced at a low cost. If it can't, we'll evaluate your options and provide recommendations for a system that will fit your home, enhance your comfort and do so efficiently.

Heating and cooling your home cannot be done without a duct work system. After all, this system is what makes warm or cool air travel from one room to another. In order to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, you need to make sure that your duct work is free from leaks and other problems.

Duct Cleaning Service in Savannah, GA

At Aeroseal of the Lowcountry, we care about you and your family and want to help reduce the allergens, mold and other irritants in your home.  Here are a few things you can do to help you breathe easier.

Indoor Air Quality


In recent years, homeowners and businesses have started to pay attention to Indoor air quality. Aeroseal of The Lowcountry not only cleans the system, but we offer real solutions to fix the source of the contaminants.
Duct Cleaning Service in Hilton Head Island, SC & Savannah, GA
Normal use of our builings generate many contaminants like dander, dust, pollen and other VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds). According to NADCA, these contaminants are pulled into the system and recirculated between 5 to 7 times per day. This constant cycle combined with poor filtration and duct leakage causes build-up of contaminants in the duct system. In a typical size home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.
While dirty HVAC ducts don’t necessarily mean unhealthy air in your home, school or workplace, they may be harboring contaminants that could cause health issues.

Energy Savings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness and better indoor air quality. Let Aeroseal Of The Lowcountry do detailed inspection of your system today.

Types Of Duct Cleaning

Contact Cleaning

Contact cleaning uses a powerful machine that has a hose and brush assembly that is pushed through the air system. As the brush rotates and disturbs the debris, it is immediately drawn into the hose. The hose and brush must be pushed through the entire system to remove all the debris.

Negative Air Cleaning

Negative air cleaning involves placing a powerful vacuum machine at one end of an air system by attaching it to a return or supply vent using a 10 inch hose. The rest of the vents are plugged and the machine is turned on, thus creating the negative air pressure in the duct system. Debris that is light or has not adhered to the surface of the ducts is immediately drawn into the machine.
To remove larger debris or debris that has adhered to the surface of the ducts, a rotating brush or compressed air is sent through the system through one vent at a time. The brush or compressed air disturbs and dislodges the debris so it can be sent down the system into the negative air machine to be collected.

Duct Cleaning Scams

Anyone considering Duct cleaning needs to take a moment to read this very informative article from "Consumer Reports" about Duct Cleaning.

AC Duct Sealing in Savannah, GA


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a typical home loses roughly 20% of the conditioned air in the duct system through duct leakage.  Although duct leaks are often never seen, they affect our lives everyday.

Have you experienced any of these problems?

  • High Utility Bills
  • Comfort Issues In Your Home
  • Excessive Dust / Fumes
  • Allergies / Breathing Issues In Your Home
Sealing your duct system can help battle all of the problems above. Improving the ducts properly allows air to be delivered to each room. A leaky duct system also allows unconditioned and unfiltered air to join the airstream. Excessive humidity, spores, dust, pollutants, and other allergens all find their way into your environment.

 Advantages of a properly sealed and filtered duct system:

  • Energy Savings
  • Reduced Need For Cleaning
  • Improved Comfort
  • Extended Equipment Life
  • Enhanced Air Quality
More information on the problems associated with duct leakage can be found on the EPA website.

Duct Leakage Solutions

AEROSEAL of the Lowcountry can help you with all of your duct sealing needs. First, we like to find out if you need duct sealing. We offer comprehensive testing & evaluation of your duct system. Based on your individual results, we will suggest the best course of action to optimize your duct system.

Traditional Duct Sealing

For accessible duct systems, traditional sealing can be very effective. This is done manually, through the use of professional grade tape, caulk, & other liquid sealants by our skilled technicians. Many times we use the duct testing equipment to help identify areas and leak, then check our work when its completed! We believe "Test...Don't Guess!"

Aeroseal of the Lowcountry Duct Sealing

A fine aerosol mist of sealant particles is injected, traveling through out the entire system locating & sealing the leakage. Unlike traditional sealing, which requires access to all ducts, Aeroseal of the Lowcountry requires only one injection point to seal the duct system.

Ductless Heat Pump Installation in Savannah, GA

Ductless Heat Pump Installation in Savannah, GA

Here, at Aeroseal of the Lowcountry, we understand how homes work. We know that when it comes to energy proficiency and conservation, your property has the space and potential to make your life, and your living environment, even better. We are proud to carry exceptional products by such brands as: American Standard, Coleman, Slant Fin, and NTI. 

The Ductless Heat Pump

Now, you might have never imagined that the air circulating in your home can become an important asset when it comes to your energy consumption. It is true that windmills or air turbines create energy via wind power, but installing one, for a small home, is quite unnecessary and a big waste of money. Luckily, there is a system that can not only bring you energy saving benefits, but also fit in or around the property of your home, and that is called the ductless heat pump system.
Normally, most homes use their air ducts to install insulation and other systems that improve the air quality in their home, and aid them with their energy consumption woes. Using the air ducts however, can take some time and disrupt your daily activities. Receiving comfort should never be uncomfortable, and this is where ductless heat pumps reveal its charms.

How Does This System Work?

This system works by taking in the heat from outdoors and converting it to warm air before it lets it in your home to cool, and in turn, takes the warm air from inside your home and expels it outside.This system also works when it comes to cooling your home, but instead of taking in warm air outside, it works just like any other central air system would, but without the ductwork and additional equipment.

Advantages of Ductless Heat Pumps

Easy to Install

Unlike insulating your air ducts, the ductless system does not necessarily need to tear down your walls for it to work. It can be installed by simply mounting it on the wall, which is then connected to a compressor placed outside your home. It is fast, easy, and can be used within the day of installation.

Helps You Lower Utility Costs

Besides keeping you warm during the cold seasons, one of the many reasons why homeowners choose this system is to lower their utility costs. When a home’s heating system is inefficient, chances are that the homeowner’s monthly electrical bill increases. Ductless heat pumps are smaller than traditional heating systems, thus, use less power. This system also creates “zones” in which, the “zoned” area, usually unoccupied rooms, no longer need to be heated.

Improve Air Quality

The quality of indoor air can be worse than the air outside. With traditional systems, they need to be cleaned and maintained constantly, leaving dust, dirt, and allergen particles, in your home. Ductless heat pumps, on the other hand, have multi-stage filtration, which reduces dust, bacteria, pollen, and other tiny particles in the air.

Lowers your Carbon Footprint

Bigger doesn’t always mean better, and this is proven by this system’s size. Not only does it consume less space, but it also takes advantage of environmental advances; helping the environment throughout its lifespan.

Heat Pumps Installation & Repair in Savannah, GA

Heat Pumps Installation & Repair in Savannah, GA

Picking out the right heating system always depends on your home or building’s structure. For simple spaces, going for electrical powered or self-contained heaters becomes the right choice, because of their size, portability, and range of effect. However, if your property occupies a bigger area, then maybe a system that can be installed within the walls of your building, or through a system that can be installed outside, is a better choice. We are proud to carry exceptional products by such brands as: American Standard, Coleman, Slant Fin, NTI, Trane, Bryant and Rheem.

What is a Heat Pump?

One type of heating system for homes that cover a larger area is the heat pump. Basically, heat pumps take heat from one area and transfer it to another, through its pipe-like passageways. This heating system also works during the colder months of the year because, even if the area is cool, the presence of heat energy still exists – making it impossible for heat pumps to run out of heat energy sources.

The Advantages of Heat Pumps
Consumes Less Energy

Most heaters generate their own heat in order to keep your homes warm; but since heat pumps only transfer heat from one place to another, it does not depend too much on electricity to create the source.

Works Both Ways

There is no need to concern yourself when it comes to keeping your environment cool, because heat pumps also work as a cooling system. This system also extracts heat from your home, thus, keeping the atmosphere comfortable and temperate, all-year round.

Safer Than Most Heating Systems

Some heaters rely on gas or electricity, which can be dangerous, if no one is constantly monitoring them. Heat pumps, however, do not need any of these to function, so you can sleep well at night knowing that fires, electrical shortages, and the like, will not occur. Also, heating systems are installed in hard-to-reach places, so your pets or kids do not come into contact with the system.

Improves Air Quality

You will never see or smell smoke and any other type of fume because heat pumps do not generate any of these. This system circulates the air in your home, and by doing so, it filters, cleans, and purifies this air by removing dust, mold spores, smoke, odors, and other particles.

Utilizes Space Effectively

Heat pumps do not need to take up a lot of space when installed. Also, you do not need to be near this system to feel warm because the air circulates all throughout your property.

Why Choose Us?

Ever since the early 1900’s, we, at Aeroseal of the Lowcountry, have been servicing the surrounding areas of Hilton Head Island, SC.
