Duct Test and Repair Adds to Your Energy Efficiency in the Home

Recommended Regular Maintenance
Your air conditioning contractors can provide you with more ways to make your home energy efficient than just ac repairs and installations. Have a qualified, licensed contractor perform Duct Test and Repair and you'll see clear benefits:
  • Repairing leaking ducts can save you up to $200 annually on cooling costs
  • Repaired ducts can optimize the airflow in your home and increase your comfort

Your local utilities can also provide you with cost saving rebates for fixing duct leaks! Call the Arizona Heat Pump Council for a contractor referral at 602-248-7767.
