As of October 1, 2005, homeowners are required to have their home or office ducts tested for leaks when a central air conditioner or furnace is installed or replaced.
With Lower Home Energy, we provide you with your "one stop shop" for the entire process of your Title 24 HERS 1 Testing; rather than searching for an unproven contractor, we will send you one of our trusted affiliates in your area who will send a contractor to test, seal the ducts, and fill out the proper forms. At this point, we will send a HERS Rater from the LHE team to check and make sure the duct sealing and duct testing was done properly.
Duct sealing is not required in the following situations:
- When homes (does not apply to nonresidential structures) are in specific coastal climate zones.
- When systems have less than 40 feet of duct-work in unconditioned spaces like attics, garages, crawlspaces, basements or outside the building.
- When ducts are constructed, insulated or sealed with asbestos.
Cost of Service: $140.00
