Installation

Whether replacing an old system or building a new house, proper installation is essential to the performance and longevity. Find out what we do that guarantees it.

In this business we try to put our service experience to good use when we do new work. We like competition, but would like to be sure that the customer compares the work being proposed is “apples for apples”. In most cases it is not so we’d like to list a few of the things we put into our jobs. Duct work is sized and installed to provide quiet airflow in all areas. Branch runs have dampers to allow fine-tuning at installation or at a later date. Main trunks can have volume dampers and will have turning vanes in bends. Supply and return plenums have sound dampening insulation to reduce blower noise being transmitted. Duct work is sealed with mastic to keep air losses to a minimum. We use higher quality supply registers for improved airflow and durability. We route duct work to keep intrusion into living and attic spaces at a minimum, while supporting the duct work and equipment securely. Branch and flex runs are kept to a minimum. We use 2”,R-6 foil backed insulation on duct work in unconditioned crawlspaces and R-8 in unconditioned attics.
