Duct Blasting & Sealing
Your home could be losing up to 20% of its air flow due to leaky or improperly sealed ducts and you wouldn’t even know it. The result can cause wasted air flow, hot or cold patches in your house, higher energy bills, and even poor respiratory health.
At Gilbert's we use the latest technology to inspect and seal your AC system's duct problems. In order to test your system, our specialists implement the best duct-blasting fans and pressure gauges to provide you with the most accurate readings available.
Knowing how your duct system is pressurized (as well as how it should be) tells our specialist exactly where the problem is and the quickest way to fix it. We work hard to make the entire process simple and safe in order to make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy costs.

Normally, insulation may seem like nothing more than the “pink stuff” in your attic. The truth is improper insulation can be the cause of many AC system malfunctions. What you might not know is this: as insulation becomes less "fluffy" it becomes less effective over time. When you use outdated types or incorrect amounts of insulation to protect your home's inner shell, the results are costly leaks and wasted energy. However, it is not always necessary to replace insulation. Instead, it can usually be updated and improved by installing energy- saving Radiant Barriers in key areas of your home.
Radiant Barriers are proven to block heat transfer across open spaces like your garage or attic, and they are the #1 reducer of both cooling and heating bills in warm, muggy climates.
At Gilbert's we recognize the importance of proper insulation. We use the most environmentally friendly products available to ensure your home is energy efficient and comfortable for your family. The EPA estimates that if one in ten homes installed radiant barrier insulation, greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by 17 billion pounds per year. Just like recycling, simply updating your insulation with radiant barriers can save you a fortune and help the planet all at once!
Air Particle Testing
Since most people spend about 85% of their time indoors, their indoor air quality is of the utmost importance to their family's health and safety. Many irritants found in air particles contribute to poor respiratory health, asthma, and in the case of radon exposure, lung cancer. Many particles are odorless and invisible so most people are completely unaware of the amount of chemicals and allergens they are exposed to on a daily basis.
The only sure way to find out if your home is a contributor to your allergy and asthma problems is to have your home tested by one of Gilbert's Comfort Specialists. Using the latest technology including laser particle scanners, our team can detect the presence of the following pollutants in the air you breathe at home every day:
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emitted from household cleaners
- Carbon monoxide
- Mold spores
- Pet dander
- And any other potentially harmful substances
Once the problem is identified, Gilbert's uses only the best air cleaners and filters to stop the flow of airborne assailants. Comfort, health, and safety are your main concerns at home. At Gilbert's, we understand and strive to help your family breathe easier.
Your attic is home to the majority of your AC system. It is also the most likely room in your house to experience leaks and encourage humidity. The attic entrance is an especially vulnerable place for humid air to develop because the cold air inside the house mingles with the usually warm air inside the attic through the drafty door.
Gilbert's offers a quick fix for just this problem: attic tents.
Attic tents are an insulated cover designed to fit the entrance of your attic. When the attic door is closed the attic tent will seal off any leaks around the door, making it air tight which will reduce humidity inside and improve air flow.
