How an Energy Services Inspection Can Boost Your Business

These commercial services can shrink your heating and cooling bills overnight.

Commercial services aren't just a method for improving your comfort at work. These professional services ensure your business’s heating and cooling dollars are well-spent. Some commercial services, like an energy services inspection, have a significant impact on your bottom line.

Ready to save money and maintain comfort in your business? Discover the ways an energy audit will help you to save big time (without sacrificing comfort!):

Determine Energy Use

Your bill doesn't break down how and when you use energy. An audit shows you when and where that heat and cold air gets delivered. You can't fine-tune your practices based on a "best guess," but with an audit you’ll have the information you need to make the necessary adjustments.

Identify Leaks and Other Problems

All HVAC systems lose conditioned air to leaks, but some properties pose bigger problems than others. A thorough audit will pinpoint areas of loss and give you the opportunity to have them fixed.

Assess Alternatives

Air conditioners last roughly ten years. Furnaces last around 15 years. After that, it's recommended you replace them simply to take advantage of higher efficiency rates. An audit will evaluate your system's performance and compare it to the expense of upgrading your equipment.

If you are tired of heating and cooling costs taking up so much of your business budget, schedule an energy audit and other commercial services. It’s time to tap into G + S’s experience and schedule your visit today, or get in touch with our team online now to explore how our commercial services can benefit your business.

How to Get Rid of Leaking Ducts

If you are trying to figure out how to get rid of leaking ducts, these troubleshooting tips should help.

Having a reliable HVAC service on speed dial makes troubleshooting easy. When calling for assistance, you're able to get an initial rundown on the problem. Many times, you'll get the advice you need to solve a problem without someone visiting your home.

Are Your Ducts Leaking?

Leaking ductwork is a common problem for HVAC systems. Temperature fluctuations test ductwork seals and frequently lead to gaps. Pests can also cause breaches, allowing the cool air you’re creating to escape into unused areas in your home. That’s not just bad for your budget. Cool air released into the wrong areas can create condensation and lead to moisture problems like mildew and mold.

Here’s how to tell if your ducts are leaking:

  • Condensation has caused water damage. If you suddenly find watermarks on your ceiling and a pool forming below ductwork in an attic or crawlspace, you might have a ductwork leak. Check the seals on the ducts in the area, cover with mastic or metal tape and then wrap the ductwork in insulation.
  • Your air filter gets filthy fast. Finding a ton of dirt and debris in your HVAC system is a clear sign there is a ductwork breech in the home allowing contaminants to enter the airflow. This is most common at return exchanges, so follow their ducts to the HVAC system. Patch appropriately or use spray foam insulation to bridge large gaps.
  • Airflow is weak. Some rooms won’t stay comfortable no matter what you do, and others are hot or cold because there’s hardly any conditioned air making it through the vent into the room. This is easy to detect when the ductwork is open, but you might need the help of a professional to find and patch a leak located inside a wall or between floors.

If troubleshooting hasn’t helped you solve your ductwork leaks, get professional help before your energy bills explode. Contact our team at G + S Heating, Air and Energy Services for help today at 704-933-2256.

Learn why smart thermostats are among the most lucrative heating and air conditioning upgrades available today.

Heating and air conditioning make up the majority of your energy costs. Using a programmable thermostat can take a chunk out of one of your biggest monthly bills. Unfortunately, only around 10 percent of homeowners know how to use programmable features. New smart thermostats make programming as simple as possible. In some cases, they do the work for you.

If you are ready to take your home’s climate control to the next level, you’ll want to know about these convenient and cost-saving benefits. Discover the coolest new features of smart thermostats:

Remote Access

Are the kids home with their friends while you're at work? Make sure they aren't cranking the AC through the roof with mobile access. You can set your comfort parameters from anywhere with Wi-Fi.

Predictability

Always turn the temp down when you get up in the morning? After a few days, you can trust your smart thermostat to do it for you with new predictability features. Some even take precipitation and humidity into account.

Human Detection

Set your programmable features by the hour? Pfft. Child’s play! Today’s smart thermostats can adjust themselves based on whether anyone is home, so you don’t have to worry about sticking to a rigid schedule. They can even distinguish between humans and other living things, like the family pet.

Take advantage of the latest cost-saving heating and air conditioning equipment on the market. Contact our friendly expert team at G + S Heating, Air and Energy Services to discuss the upgrades best for your budget.

Why Preventative Maintenance Makes Sense
Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Enroll in maintenance agreements for fast service and big deals.

Comparing maintenance agreements is like comparing apples to oranges. Every HVAC provider has a plan to offer with different features and benefits. Home and business owners throughout the Kannapolis area think the Energy Savings Agreement through G+S is one of the best. Check out the benefits you’ll get by enrolling today:

Pre-Season Checkups

Preventive maintenance calls are like sports physicals for your AC. It only makes sense to have one performed before the season begins. You need to make sure your system is ready for the brunt of the summer's heat. The stress of keeping your home cool as temperatures rise is enough to hobble the system if it's ill-prepared.

During pre-season checkups, your technician will clean your system’s components and check them for signs of failure or excess wear. Your tech will also change your filter and tighten and lube moving parts. This lowers resistance, making it easier and cheaper to cool your home all summer long.

Priority Service

When a heatwave hits, neglected AC units drop like flies. This leads to a backup in service dates. How long do you want to wait for cool, comfortable, conditioned air? Enrolling in an Energy Savings Agreement means you'll get first dibs when you call in. Repair technicians will head to your house before they go to the home of any non-members.

The same will be true of your home’s new owners should you sell your property mid-contract. While an affordable investment, the boost in value can provide buyers with just the convenience they’re hoping to find.

Repair Savings

In addition, enrollees receive 15 percent off standard repair rates.

They say prevention is worth a pound of cure. It’s never truer than when dealing with a five-ton AC system.

Call our team at G+S Heating Air Energy Services at 704-933-2256 to enroll in one of the best maintenance agreements in the area.
