What to Expect During a Carrier 360 Home Evaluation
Bodine-Scott is a Carrier Energy Expert. That means we can perform a Carrier 360 home evaluation to find and repair problems that can raise your utility bills. Our experts will inspect, test and improve many parts of your Corpus Christi, Texas, home for optimal energy efficiency.
During a Carrier 360 home evaluation, a service technician will check your HVAC system and ductwork for problems like:
- Dirty air filters
- Refrigerant leaks
- Leaks in your ductwork
- Malfunctioning thermostats
They’ll also check your utility bills for unusual charges, look at all the rooms in your home, and inspect your water heater and insulation.
Sophisticated tests will let you know exactly where you need improvements. A blower-door test looks for air leaks, and a thermographic inspection with a thermal imaging camera locates warm or cool areas that may need more insulation. An expert can also use a special gas to measure air infiltration. That way, you can keep allergens like pollen, dust and dirt out of your home.
Common recommendations after a Carrier 360 home evaluation include adding weather stripping, new insulation and landscaping changes. If you have an older HVAC system or water heater, replacing it with a more efficient model can increase the value of your home. A new appliance can also pay for itself through energy savings.
By consulting an expert, you can choose the upgrades that will help your family save most. We’ll also help you make simple changes like:
- Investing in the right window treatments
- Using ceiling fans correctly
- Changing your thermostat settings
- Planting some trees for extra shade
