Whole House Comfort Checkup

Checkup VideoA Whole House Comfort Checkup, as specified by the Comfort Institute, is a thorough evaluation of all your home's comfort systems. As a specially trained Comfort Institute member, we offer this service to ensure the quality of your systems, by using advanced diagnostic instruments and testing procedures. We will identify problems that affect your indoor living environment. Our consultant will then provide you with a personalized plan to solve these problems, permanently. Click on the image to the right to watch a video on how important it is to have a Whole House Comfort Checkup, and the steps involved.

Here's How it Works:

Initial Consultation

Your checkup starts with an initial interview with our Comfort Specialist. Your input provides valuable information, such as whether any rooms feel clammy when the air conditioner is running, or do any parts of the house need to be dusted more often than others. We encourage all the adults in your home to participate in this initial consultation since everyone's perception of comfort and indoor air quality is unique.

Equipment Installation

The inspection begins with your heating and air conditioning equipment. Is it efficient, dependable and safe? Our specialist will visually inspect your equipment for any signs of deterioration, improper installation, or insufficient maintenance. We will let you know the average life span of your type of equipment. We will also evaluate your system's air filtration and purification efficiency to determine if improvements would improve your indoor air quality.

Insulation Inspection

Even the best heating and cooling system will have trouble keeping you comfortable or will cost more to run if you don't have enough insulation. Our consultant will visually inspect insulation levels throughout your home and determine if they meet currently recommended levels. More importantly, we will look for hidden defects, such as hollow wall cavities, that allow air and heat to bypass your insulation. Attic ventilation levels will also be checked.

KG's Air Blower Door TestInfiltrometer Blower Door Test

All houses should have some air leakage, but most leak too much. Symptoms of excessive leakage include uneven temperatures throughout the house, wasted energy, excessive dust, cold drafts, dry air in winter, and clammy air in summer. On the other hand, some homes are too airtight and may have unhealthy indoor air.

To measure a home's air tightness, Department of Energy scientists at Princeton University invented the blower door instrument. It is often featured in magazines and on television, including National Geographic, Better Homes and Gardens, Popular Science, and This Old House.

Using an Infiltrometer (a computerized blower door system) we will evaluate how leaky or airtight your entire home is, and where improvements can be made.

Air Leakage Evaluation

Not all air leaks are created equal. From an air quality standpoint, those around your windows and doors are good leaks, since they let in fresh outdoor air. Bad leaks let in dusty, moldy or polluted air from your attic, garage, or crawl space. Leaky air ducts often bring in dirty air and cause your heating and cooling equipment to perform well below peak efficiency. As part of the Infiltrometer blower door test, your consultant will pinpoint where your home's worst air leaks are, and where improvements can be made.

Air Flow Diagnosis

If your air duct system has hidden design flaws or blockages, your air flow will be restricted or unevenly distributed. This wastes your money and can make your home uncomfortable. Studies conducted for electric utilities nationwide show that over 66% of heat pumps and air conditioners suffer from this problem. We will conduct 'static pressure' tests - like a blood pressure check for your ducts - to reveal any hidden blockages or design problems.

Do you have rooms that are hard to heat or cool? There are economical solutions. We will use an air flow capture hood to measure precisely how much conditioned air is getting to those rooms (provided the supply vents are accessible). If air flow is low, the causes will be determined, and appropriate solutions will be prescribed.

Personalized Improvement Plan

Once the inspection and testing are complete, we will explain the results and give you a prioritized plan of recommended improvements. We will then prepare a proposal for repairs we can perform, and can recommend other contractors for services we do not offer.

During your Whole House Comfort Checkup, you will learn how to:
  • Achieve even, comfortable temperatures throughout your home
  • Maintain healthy, comfortable humidity levels year-round
  • Reduce dust, system noise and repair bills
  • Save money on your utility bills
