Do You Have The Right A/C Unit For Your Home?

Have you ever wondered, “Do you have the right A/C unit for your home?” It’s a question our experienced HVAC contractors get asked all the time. Many Florida homeowners feel that “bigger is better” when it comes to the size of the air conditioning unit for their homes, but that isn’t necessariliy the case. In some instances “bigger” means it’s costing you more money to operate, but is not necessarily cooling your home any better than a smaller, fit-to-your house size would.

Do You Have The Right A/C Unit For Your Home?

The answer to the “correct size” air conditioning unit for your home isn’t as simple as it may seem. Homeowners, and even some HVAC contractors, use a rule of thumb calculation to determine what size A/C unit to install. This rule of thumb includes essentially calculating the square footage of the house then looking for a unit that shows it will cool a home of that square footage. It’s essentially guesswork and it’s guesswork that could cause your utility bills to be higher than they need to be. Read More »

Are Your Ducts Sealed?

Are Your Ducts Sealed? Symbiont Service Corp professionals explain its importance 

Have you ever wondered, “are your ducts sealed?” Not many people do, but whether you live in the sunny climate of Florida or the chilly climate of New York you need to think about whether the ducts in your home are sealed. Why? Whether it’s a hot day or a cold day, if the ducts in your home aren’t properly sealed you are paying to heat or cool your home and that warm or cooled air is slipping out through unsealed ducts.

The next time you look at your heating or cooling bill and gasp in horror — especially if you’re never warm or cold enough — it’s time to call on the services of Symbiont and its technicians to inspect your home’s ductwork.

Are Your Ducts Sealed?

A leaking portion of ductwork can be miniscule — one so small that without a trained eye you wouldn’t even notice it. Even the smallest leak in the ductwork can mean you’re losing up to 25% of the air you have heated or cooled and that can certainly add up — as you’re well aware when you open your heating or cooling bill! The best way to determine whether your home is to have a home energy test or to hire a professional contractor to perform a ductwork inspection. A professional geothermal specialist from Symbiont Service Corp can locate and fix any leaks or cracks in the ductwork. Keep in mind that many of these leaking elements are nestled behind walls or in the ceiling.ductwork sealing

A professional contractor will locate and repair the leaking elements and you will be on your way to a cooled or heated home and a lower energy bill because you’ve had the leaking ductwork repaired.

Potential health hazard

Losing money on heated or cooled air is one of the concerns with leaking ductwork. Another concern is that gas appliances including the furnace and dryer can release harmful gases into the home. If the ductwork is not properly seaked, harmful fumes could be pulled into the ducts (that’s called a back-draft) and could push those fumes throughout the home. Breathing in those fumes are harmful and could lead to health issues.

If you have never had your ductwork inspected and aren’t certain whether you have any leaking ducts, give Symbiont Service Corp a call and we can schedule an onsite visit to help you determine the potential for any risks with leaking ductwork.

Our goal is to educate customers about energy and home comfort issues (specific to HVAC systems).  For information, click here and download our free Home Comfort Resource guide.
