IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE AIR YOU BREATHE
Have you been experiencing indoor air quality issues? If so, you're not alone. Many DC homeowners suffer from what they think to be allergies, yet the problem actually originates from the air they're breathing when at home. This is especially problematic in the months of the year when people tend to spend more time indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor indoor air quality is a leading health threat in America, as contaminants that range from mold and dust to dangerous chemicals can have detrimental effects on those who breathe them in.
In many cases, indoor air quality can be improved with cleaning and sealing the ducts in a home. To understand leaky ducts, consider the analogy of a hose in the basement pushing water towards the roof. If the hose was full of holes the entire way up, the pressure at the top would be nowhere near that in the basement. The same goes for leaky ducts, and the byproducts can be harmful for you and your family.
WHY SCHEDULE A PROFESSIONAL DUCT EVALUATION WITH HOME ENERGY MEDICS?
At Home Energy Medics, we know that indoor air quality is one of the most important things that residents can focus on. A professional duct evaluation is the first step towards fixing whatever issues may exist. We use state-of-the-art Duct Blaster technology to evaluate the performance of your ducts and get a clear view of the areas that need improvement. We can also help to save you money through quicker, less expensive pressure pan measurements.
ENSURING SAFE, HEALTHY INDOOR AIR
Once our trained professionals evaluate your home, we can clean and seal your ducts quickly and effectively, resulting in improved indoor air quality, increased home comfort and enhanced home efficiency and performance. We also offer a full suite of ventilation upgrade services to help ensure your family is breathing healthy, safe air. From heat recovery ventilators (HRVs), which capture the heat from out-going air and transfer it to incoming air, to simple exhaust vans, Home Energy Medics has you covered.
Many homeowners are shocked to see the immediate differences that cleaned and sealed ducts can have on energy efficiency, and it all starts with a professional evaluation from Home Energy Medics.

Just looking for additional insulation in your attic or sealing up air leaks? Did you know that making certain changes to your home can result in unforeseen consequences? That is why we always recommend a full home energy audit by Home Energy Medics prior to implementing any efficiency measures. This will provide a full view of your house, it's systems and what can be done to improve ALL areas of your home. Best of all, we refund all or part of the audit cost when you choose to have us implement the solutions.
Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
