The owners of a 1950s home in Contra Costa County needed to remove old asbestos insulation. They wanted a new, more efficient furnace and a zoned air conditioner to improve their comfort, no matter the outdoor temperature. To save money, the homeowners hoped to take advantage of available rebates in their area. Of course, they also wanted to see savings on their monthly energy costs.
Our team used a multi-step approach to solving the needs of these homeowners:
Duct replacement to remove old asbestos insulation and replace it with a high-quality R-8 insulation with just 10 percent duct leakage.
Replace the whole house heating system, including removing the existing 80 percent forced hot air furnace, and installing (in the same location within the home) a more efficient, 97 percent AFUE modulating furnace.
Upgrade the air conditioning with a Carrier 19 SEER variable speed unit that has refrigerant charge verification, so it’s easy to tell if it is functioning properly.
Install a new whole house air filtration system.
With rebates and energy incentives, Hassler helped these homeowners lower the project cost from $20K to a more manageable $12K, with all new units and upgrades included. The homeowners are also enjoying lower monthly utility costs and better indoor air quality. Plus, they no longer have asbestos insulation in their home.
