Duct Sealing 101

In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.
How do you know that your home has poorly performing ducts? Continue below to learn from the heating system repair experts serving Aurora, CO, and beyond, here at Blue Sky!

Top Reasons to Install an

Air Purifier in Your Home
Health & Safety Issues
While we can’t see it, the air around us is surrounded by dangerous particles. Virus-causing bacteria, dander, and mold are only a few of the harmful airborne germs we’re breathing in at this very second. There are 6.5 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions swirling in the air throughout the country, and Denver holds on to more than 120 million metric tons of it. In fact, the air around us is so unhealthy that Denver was voted the 12th worst city for air pollution out of 227 metro areas in the country. If you think you can escape the dangerous outdoor air by hiding indoors, you should know that the only way to ensure you and your family are breathing clean, healthy air is by installing an air-purifying system in your home. Otherwise, the dusty and dirty Colorado air will begin to take a toll on your health.

Places Where Leaks Love to

Leaks. They seem so insignificant, yet they’re so dangerous. Most homeowners don’t realize that a small leak can waste up to five gallons of water in a day. Not only is this wasteful and costly, but it’s also indicative of a much bigger problem. Your plumbing system needs immediate attention if it’s housing a faulty pipe. A small leak today means a massive flood tomorrow. So, let’s put our work boots on and find this leak.
Toilet Bowl
The most common culprit of a hidden leak is your toilet. Toilet tanks have a lot of valves and internal components that can allow water to leak if they’re not sealed properly or become damaged. Luckily, verifying a toilet leak is easy. Just follow our instructions below.

The Benefits

Flushing Your Tankless Water Heater

is Essential
Like all home appliances, tankless water heaters require annual maintenance to retain their efficiency and performance. A key step of this routine care is flushing out the system. Flushing a tankless water heater entails cleaning the appliance of any mineral deposits, which can cause damage. If you require any plumbing services, such as water heater maintenance or boiler replacement in Boulder, CO, or another nearby area, contact Blue Sky Plumbing today.

How Insulation Works

Insulation in your home provides resistance to heat flow.
The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs. Properly insulating your home not only reduces heating and cooling costs, but also improves comfort — take it from your local Denver, CO, AC repair experts here at Blue Sky!
To understand how insulation works it helps to understand heat flow, which involves three basic mechanisms -- conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the way heat moves through materials, such as when a spoon placed in a hot cup of coffee conducts heat through its handle to your hand. Convection is the way heat circulates through liquids and gases, and is why lighter, warmer air rises, and cooler, denser air sinks in your home. Radiant heat travels in a straight line and heats anything solid in its path that absorbs its energy.

Do-It-Yourself Drain Maintenance

Sewer & Drain
Preventative maintenance is essential to avoid damaging clogs and hazardous backups in your drains and pipes, especially in an older plumbing system. By moderating what goes down your drains, you will have a better chance of preventing clogs and keeping your drains free to do their jobs efficiently. One way to effectively counteract drain clogs is to regularly clean out your drain strainers and stoppers, removing natural debris, including hair, sediment, food, grime, and other clinging build-up that inhibit draining.

Duct Insulation

Your air ducts are one of the most important systems in your home, and if the ducts are poorly sealed or insulated they are likely contributing to higher energy bills. Learn more about ducts below, courtesy of Denver's favorite heating repair company, Blue Sky!
Your home's duct system is a branching network of tubes in the walls, floors, and ceilings; it carries the air from your home's furnace and central air conditioner to each room. Ducts are made of sheet metal, fiberglass, or other materials.
Ducts that leak heated air into unheated spaces can add hundreds of dollars a year to your heating and cooling bills. Insulating ducts in unconditioned spaces is usually very cost-effective. If you are installing a new duct system, make sure it comes with insulation.

The Truth About High-Efficiency Toilets

Not your father's low-flow...
Problems with first-generation “low flow” toilets were infamous in the early 1990s. Some consumers complained that the toilets clogged too often, needed several flushes to clear the bowl, or caused problems with their home plumbing. Although later generations of water-saving toilets have resolved such issues, misconceptions have persisted and kept many consumers from saving both water and money. With new designs and technological advancements, today's high-efficiency toi­lets use less than 1.3 gallons per flush and perform as well as—or better than—conventional, less efficient models.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) WaterSense program is making it easy for consumers to identify high-efficiency toilets in the marketplace. Toilets that are certified by independent, third-party testing to meet EPA's rigorous criteria for both efficiency and performance can earn the WaterSense label. Look for WaterSense-labeled toilets and don't let these myths keep you from saving water and saving money!

A Brief Guide to Mold,

Moisture and Your Home
Health & Safety Issues
Why is mold growing in my home?
Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Biological Pollutants in Your Home

Health & Safety Issues
Outdoor air pollution in cities is a major health problem. Much effort and money continues to be spent cleaning up pollution in the outdoor air. But air pollution can be a problem where you least expect it, in the place you may have thought was safest -- your home. Many ordinary activities such as cooking, heating, cooling, cleaning, and redecorating can cause the release and spread of indoor pollutants at home. Studies have shown that the air in our homes can be even more polluted than outdoor air.
Many Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, often at home. Therefore, breathing clean indoor air can have an important impact on health. People who are inside a great deal may be at greater risk of developing health problems, or having problems made worse by indoor air pollutants. These people include infants, young children the elderly and those with chronic illnesses.
