Capital understands the mechanics of your home’s air conditioner is only ONE part of the larger system that affects your comfort, health, safety & wallet. The best way to make accurate recommendations regarding your home air conditioning system is to look at the whole picture; that’s why our AC tune-up checklist has been called Milwaukee’s best AC tune-up and includes a:
- free ductwork inspection (reg. $99)
- free home air quality test (reg. $189).
Leaky Ductwork Means a Less Efficient AC. Isn’t That the Point of an AC Tune-Up?
Ductwork. It’s not sexy, but it’s the foundation of your air vent system. If it has cracks and leaks, nothing works. From your high-efficiency HVAC to your smart thermostat, none of them can do their job if your air vent system has cracks, leaks, and holes. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates most homes leak 25-40%, resulting in higher energy bills, contaminated air, and hot and cold zones in your home.
At Capital, we believe that making sure the air you’re paying good money to cool, does not escape through leaks or holes in your ductwork, is just part of providing professional AC maintenance service.
Your Home Air Quality Suffers When Your AC isn’t Right
A good air conditioning system wears hats you didn’t even know it had and when things aren’t working right, the problems can present themselves in the forms of indoor air quality problems like odors, respiratory issues, mold, and more.
For example, your AC helps regulate the relative humidity inside your home, which helps improve the air you breathe. Poor humidity, whether it’s too high or too low, can lead to the presence of mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria, and viruses. The home air quality test measures relative humidity along with 5 other key factors that frequently contribute to the problems caused by indoor air pollution.
What Does the Home Air Quality Test Measure?
The comprehensive report from your indoor air quality audit measures six key factors that frequently contribute to the problems caused by indoor air pollution. If any of the factors are at a level that can pose a risk to your health, comfort, or safety, the report also identifies potential causes and recommended actions.
- Chemical pollutants
- Carbon dioxide
- Relative humidity
