Bovio Heating & Air Conditioning, an air conditioning repair company serving Sewell, Gloucester, Turnersville and other parts of South Jersey, is pleased to announce another successful energy audit for a satisfied customer. When the customer first came to Bovio Heating & Air Conditioning for her energy audit, she expressed extensive concerns about the overall comfort deficiencies in her recently purchased home. Through her knowledge of her most disconcerting areas, and a thorough home energy assessment, Bovio was able to closely address each of her concerns effectively and efficiently while overall improving her home as a system.
The first issue to address was the living room “In order to address the first issue, we had to look to the crawl space,” a representative from Bovio said. “The entire first floor was over a dirt floored, un-insulated vented crawl and contained nearly the entire ducted distribution system which was also un-insulated. This situation was allowing unconditioned air to freely flow throughout the space, greatly affecting the temperature of the underside of the flooring and the conditioned ducts, robbing them of their effectiveness before they even had a chance to make the home comfortable.”
The dirt floor was constantly allowing moisture to penetrate into the home, making the conditions inside feel much less comfortable no matter what the season. With the implementation of a properly installed vapor barrier, blocking the existing vents and applying high density spray foam to all of the exposed crawl walls, we have brought the entire space within the thermal boundary, thus eliminating each issue of concern on the first floor. “Now the duct system can do its job properly, the moisture is locked outside where it belongs and the floors to be lived upon are the same cozy temperature of the living space,” the representative added.
The next room this experienced air conditioning company from Gloucester had to address was the poor insulation levels in the upstairs walls. The home had poor insulation levels in knee wall areas, an inadequate amount of un-insulated duct and a room above the garage completely exposed to the surrounding temperatures. This list of issues was tackled with the same principle of bringing these areas inside the thermal boundary, conditioning the interior walls to same effect as the flooring downstairs. Spray foam insulation was applied to the underside of the roof deck to insulate the space and provide an additional level of air sealing. To overcome the inadequacy of the old duct system, a two zone Mitsubishi ductless heat pump system was installed for perfectly controlled, zoned comfort.
By addressing the home as a system and implementing modern technological energy saving measures, Bovio Heating & Air Conditioning was able to create a more comfortable and more efficient home for the customer.
