Energy Services Teams up With Com Ed
In April of 2009 Energy Services began testing the exact energy efficiency
of homes with a new instrument designed by Honeywell Corporation. Com Ed
has received a Federal grant of millions of dollars to partner with
select HVAC companies and record exact home, energy efficiencies. This
test is performed by Energy Service's technicians. After the exact
efficiency is determined the tech will recommend improvements to
improve efficiencies. If the homeowner decides to invest in the
improvements the tech will return and record the resulting home
efficiencies. This information is then passed on to Com Ed.
The purpose of these tests is to lower the fuel/energy consumption of homes, thus
improving the environment and lowering the United States dependency of foreign
sources of energy.
New Carrier Coils Introduced in 2009
Over the past few years the level of indoor air pollution has increased
substantially. Much of this indoor air pollution is in the form of dangerous
gasses. An example of this problem can be found in newer homes where building
materials gasses are combining. These gasses are harmful to the health of home
occupants in certain situations and to the HVAC systems, especially the indoor,
A/C evaporator coil. Many of these coils have deteriorated prematurely. One of
the answers to this dilemma is to produce a coil that does not fail as rapidly.
In 2009 Energy Services began installing new coils which last longer. These new
coils are called the "tin-coated" evaporator coil. To date, Energy Services is
the only HVAC company in the Chicagoland area that installs these Carrier coils.
New Test to Detect Dangerous Indoor Gasses
As stated in the previous paragraph indoor air pollution is a serious health problem in the U.S. and
much of it can be attributed to invisible gasses. Energy Services now has an instrument which
tests for indoor gasses. This new instrument also tests for particulates,
carbon monoxide and excessive humidity. Call Energy Services to schedule
to have this test performed in your home.
