Take a whole-home approach to air quality

Your home’s attic can have a big impact on comfort and energy costs

Many people are surprised to learn how much time Canadians spend of their time indoors. So much time spent inside the home underscores the importance of caring for the air that flows throughout a home’s ductwork. It’s no wonder that issues in the attic can affect the whole home considering that 90% of homes are under-insulated, as the average home loses up to 30% of the air moving through its duct system due to leaks, holes and poor connections, problems in the attic can affect air throughout the home. Higher energy bills, airborne contaminants in other parts of the home and reduced comfort can all be signs of a problem in the attic. That makes the attic a good place to start when it comes to improving comfort and energy efficiency.   

Fox Plumbing Heating Cooling Electrical is a certified AirCare® Professional, which means that we can help homeowners look beyond the HVAC unit to optimize the system driving the entire home. Our “whole home” approach will consider attic ductwork and levels of insulation to evaluate how and where energy efficiency and comfort can be improved.  

The whole-home approach helps maximize energy efficiency

Fox takes a “whole-home approach” when evaluating an HVAC system. Going beyond the equipment that heats and cools your home, we evaluate how air moves throughout a home and what problems may be keeping your HVAC investment from delivering its full value.

Did you know that the largest part of your HVAC system is your home’s ductwork?

Today’s HVAC systems are highly efficient, but even the most advanced heating and cooling technology can’t deliver maximum performance if attic ductwork is compromised. Our Certified AirCare® Professionals have the training and tools to evaluate an attic duct system’s integrity and determine the overall efficiency of the entire duct system to get to the root of any problem.

Our technicians will work with you to evaluate and solve energy inefficiencies

A Certified AirCare® Professional on our team can help you evaluate the efficiency of your home’s HVAC system and determine steps for improving it. You can help by telling them about rooms that are too hot or cold, musty odors, drafts or any other issues related to your home’s air and comfort levels. They’ll inspect the attic using tools to evaluate the amount of insulation, inspect duct work for holes, leaks or poor connections, and record video to show you any issues. And while in the attic, they’ll take photos of any areas of concern so that you can see firsthand where your attic may be under-insulated.

A Certified AirCare® Professional can determine if measures such as replacing ductwork or adding loose fill insulation could improve comfort, air quality and energy efficiency. They can calculate the energy savings you might see by increasing your attic insulation. Getting things right in the attic can help avoid your equipment working harder than it needs to, saving energy and wear and tear.

Properly sized ducts and increased insulation may resolve efficiency issues

Properly sized, sealed and insulated ductwork can improve your comfort and energy efficiency while helping stop the spread of airborne pollutants. As a Certified AirCare® Professional, Company Name can diagnose and resolve duct issues and suggest insulation upgrades to improve your home environment in order to:
