Frank’s AC Energy Saving Tools
Energy Efficiency Analysis
Energy efficiency is more important now than ever before. It affects your comfort, the safety of your family, your budget and your carbon footprint.
Through a partnership with Airenalysis, Frank’s Air Conditioning can provide measurement and data verification services, enabling homeowners, contractors, and utility companies to quantify results to make energy efficiency decisions.
We use fully automated diagnostic technology to detect the efficiency of ductwork and HVAC units. The test results are then placed on the greennet website, where you can instantly view them.
We recommend the following tests:
Duct Blaster Testing
A duct blaster test combines a small fan and a pressure gauge to pressurize a house’s duct system to accurately measure air leakage of the ductwork. This test is similar to a pressure test of a plumbing system when completed.
A duct blaster test is required for an energy star certification. The test results show total duct leakage of 6 CFM to outdoors/100 square feet. This requirement is mandatory for an energy star certification.
Blower Door Testing
Airenalasys uses a blower door to help determine a home’s air tightness. This testing helps determine the following:
- Energy consumption due to air leakage
- Moisture condensation problems
- Drafts caused by cold air leaking in from the outdoors
- Measuring contaminated indoor air pollution
A blower door attaches to the exterior door of your home. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings. The test determines the air infiltration rate of a building.
