Why did the customer contact us?

Adrian is maintenance plan family member so we are privileged to maintain and service his family's heat pumps and boiler. This project was a replacement of one heat pump system and its ductboard duct system because of performance and health concerns related to allergies and indoor air quality.

Solutions provided:

To begin the replacement of the heat pump system and its ductboard duct system, we removed the ductboard, bagging it in the attic to limit fiberglass contamination in the living space. We also recovered refrigerant and removed the existing equipment. Later we recycled the refrigerant as required by the EPA and recycled as much of the metal as possible.

We installed a plywood floor in the attic at Adrian's request and installed a custom-designed, insulated metal trunk duct system with manual dampers. We also replaced several branch supplies to solve some problem areas in the house and added one new supply in the foyer. Lastly we added three returns, one in each bedroom to ensure proper airflow even when doors are closed at night.

Outside, we built a custom pad and installed a 15.0 SEER Ruud heat pump connected to a constant torque blower motor to deliver efficient, quiet airflow.

Lastly we sealed the ducts using Aeroseal to achieve a tight, clean duct system.

We also installed several client-provided ECOBEE and NEST thermostats for wireless control of the home.
