There are many ways to save on your energy costs. Here are some suggestions to get you started:

1. Dirty Filter

Filters are in place to keep your indoor air clean. But as they collect more and more contaminants, they can do more harm than good in your system. If neglected, a filter’s accumulated dust can begin to restrict the airflow in your home. This means your heating and air conditioning will use more energy to move the same amount of air. Check your filter size and go buy a few replacements. Its recommended to replace a home’s air filter every once every season.

2. Leaking Air DuctsDuct Leaks Wasting Money

It is common for duct work to be installed with gaps or to develop leaks over time. When air leaks out of your air ducts, your HVAC system needs to run longer to push the conditioned air to your thermostat. The wasted effort can accumulate in significant energy costs over time. Part of regular home maintenance includes sealing any leaks that develop in your duct work. Aeroseal is Safety King’s method of sealing air ducts from the inside. No matter where the leaks are in your duct work, the Aeroseal process is designed to seal any and all gaps.

3. Clogged Dryer Vent

Your dryer probably doesn’t dry clothes as well as it did when you first bought it. One of the main reasons for this is that dryer exhausts get clogged with lint over time. When a dryer vent is clogged, the dryer needs to run longer to dry the same amount of clothes. Not only is this a big waste of energy, but it is also a notable fire hazard.

4. Dirty/Clogged CoilsClogged Condenser Coil Wasting Energy

Air conditioning systems have two coils, one called the evaporator coil and a second one called the condenser coil. Coils are heat transfer devices that make heat removal possible. If either of these coils becomes dirty and partially blocked by dust and debris or by layers of mold or mildew, its efficiency and air flow across the coil drops significantly. Under these conditions, the system has to run longer to achieve the required cooling effect inside the house. It runs more, costing more and it also tends to need repair or replacement more quickly.

5. Unbalanced Air Ducts

Most homeowners don’t know what it means to balance an air duct system but balance is one of the most important steps to optimizing your home’s airflow and energy efficiency. Controls on your inline dampers allow you to close off airflow to vents closer to the furnace while opening vents further away. This eliminates excessive running of you HVAC system by making sure that the air pressure is the same in each vent throughout the house. Ask your HVAC specialist to help balance temperature differences in your house.

Stop Wasting Money, Seal Your Ductwork

Consumer ReportsMoney Magazine and other leading publications say that duct sealing is one of the best investments to reduce home energy bills. Sealing duct work has proven to be more effective than attic insulation and upgrading windows. Leaving a leak in your air ducts is like leaving a leak in a water pipe: the cost begins to add up over time. Our Aeroseal procedure can find and remedy any inefficiency caused by gaps in your air ducts.

Our Aeroseal specialists have been working hard as the demand for sealed air ducts increases. You can see the results of our process by viewing any of the Certificates of Completion below. Each set of two certificates is the supply and return side of an HVAC system.

Sealing leaks in your air ducts is one of the best ways to save on energy bills!

It is common for duct work to be installed with gaps or develop leaks over time. Part of regular home maintenance includes sealing any leaks that develop in your duct work. If you are unable to check for leaks yourself, Safety King offers the Duct Blaster, an air pressure test that can provide an accurate measure of how efficiently your system is running.

If leaks are discovered, Aeroseal is Safety King’s method of sealing air ducts from the inside. No matter where the leaks are in your duct work, the Aeroseal process is designed to seal any and all gaps. Two of our Aeroseal specialists, Bill and Eric, sealed the duct work of two entire HVAC systems in a home in Fair Haven last month. Click the images below to see the details of the sealing.

We show each of our Aeroseal customers this certificate of completion. It provides a visual representation of the improvement in air pressure for both the supply and return side of the HVAC system throughout the Aeroseal process.

Take Action to Improve Air Quality in Every Room!

Have you noticed a increased amount of dust in your home? Is this season causing allergies in your family? These could be air quality problems symptomatic of contamination via the gaps in your ductwork. Sealing a home’s air ducts results less dust, less allergies, and cleaner air. Watch the video below to find out if leaks in your ductwork could be the source of excessive dust and allergies.

“Typical duct systems lose 25 to 40 percent of the heating or cooling energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump or air conditioner. Duct repairs could be the most important energy improvement measure you can do.” U.S Department of Energy

Our Aeroseal specialists Bill and Eric recently sealed the air ducts of a home in Rochester Hills greatly improving their indoor air quality and annual energy cost.

Safety King is credited in the rehabilitation of this Detroit home

The upcoming This Old House episode “Fixing the Fascia” features the home where Safety King worked with This Old House to revitalize a Detroit home. This episode originally airs on PBS nationally at 8pm on May 4th, 2017. You can look up your zip code here to find out when the episode will air locally.

As seen on This Old House“At the Grandmont Rosedale project, a new exterior wall goes up from the inside. In Russell Woods, Scott Caron and local electrician Shane Masters rough-in new kitchen wiring. Richard finds Joe Burke installing a brand new HVAC system before heading to Flint, MI to learn about the ongoing crisis that has residents without clean water. Back at the house, Tommy, Frank and local contractor Josh Engle install more substantial fascia in preparation for new gutters.”

Safety King went into the home and cleaned out the air ducts while the house’s outdated HVAC system was being replaced. It is a good idea to have the air ducts cleaned around the same time as a furnace replacement to keep your new equipment clean and efficient.

Episodes can also be viewed on Create Network as well as streamed through the PBS app on Apple TV and Roku boxes. Or just click the button below to watch full episodes online!

Full episodes are available online after the airdate!

Minute with Mike: Interviews with Safety King’s Founder

Safety King’s Founder, Michael S. Palazzolo, recently did an interview with Charles Ellison on the Air Duct Cleaning Training Podcast. During their talk, Mike emphasizes the importance of smiling while talking with someone on the phone.

A good relationship begins with positive communication and most of our first impressions with people occur on the phone.

Body language is heard, even if its not seen. Even faking a smile changes the tone of your voice and emotions are contagious. People subconsciously try to match the energy of their peers so your smile has the power to influence the moods of the people around you.
