With the goal of lowering their energy bills and improving indoor air quality throughout their home, these San Ramon homeowners opted to upgrade older heating and cooling systems with high-efficiency products and install a brand new whole house air filter. Maximizing available rebates helped them recoup some of the project cost.
Our team focused on a few key services to help the homeowners boost air quality, energy efficiency and control of their indoor air. We took the following approach:
Replace the existing 80 percent forced hot air furnace with a 96.5 percent high-efficiency, two-stage furnace.
Install a multi-zone duct system to help even out temperatures in the home, and replace poorly installed insulation with R-8 insulation with 6 percent duct leakage.
Install a whole house air filter, upgrade the air conditioner and replace the standard water heater with a more efficient tankless hot water heater.
Remove old attic insulation and install blown-in, R-8 rated cellulose insulation and new knee-wall insulation.
With Hassler’s help, these homeowners are enjoying a more comfortable home, with all parts of the house at the right temperature year-round. The air filtration system helps keep out pollen, dust and other pollutants, for healthier indoor air. The total project cost of about $32K dropped to around $26K, with various rebates and a $500 federal energy tax credit.
