Ideally you want your home to have the proper airflow or ventilation from outdoor air to indoor air and vice versa. This makes for good indoor air quality (IAQ), combustion safety, energy efficiency, and proper moisture mitigation. Unfortunately there are many homes in the Salem, Oregon area that have unbalanced air exchange, creating problems for the homes. At Day Energy Solutions, our air-sealing experts can assess your home to be sure all facets in your home are working harmoniously for a perfect balance.
The two primary scenarios our highly qualified technicians survey are excessive and inadequate air leakage. Both incidents have negative consequences for you and your home. With excessive leakage, you will find higher energy bills, poor IAQ, and uneven temperatures throughout your home. With inadequate leakage, you will have mold growth, poor IAQ, and safety concerns.
To determine if your home is affected by one of these conditions, our specialists will test your home using a blower door test combined with a few house-specific calculations. The results of these thorough analyses will pinpoint your leakage rates and sources. From there you and our team can move forward, designing and implementing the best plan to create proper IAQ and ventilation in your home.
Our specialists would love to talk to you. Give us a call at 503-363-2194 to arrange a time for us to come out to your home. Your home will be better for it.
Most homes in Salem, Oregon with ductwork have duct leaks. How do you know if you have ductwork? If you have a traditional furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner, you have ductwork. Ducts are what distribute your home’s warm and cool air throughout your home. Next, how do you know if you have leaks? To know definitively, you would need professionals like ours at Day Energy Solutions to come to your home to assess your ductwork. But if your home’s energy bills keep climbing or your home has hot or cold spots throughout, there’s a pretty good chance your ducts are leaking and need sealing. Statistically, up to 30 percent of your home’s warm and/or cool air is lost through leaks, poorly connected ducts, and holes. This equates to literally throwing money out one of your windows.
There’s an entire host of benefits to sealing your ducts. Some of the most pronounced advantages you’ll notice are improved comfort within your home, better indoor air quality, maximized safety, increased energy and cost savings, and enlarged environmental protection. All of these benefits are tangible where you’ll see the improved results not long after our experts have sealed your ducts.
Our technicians have the experience and knowledge to perform the highest quality work in your home. Call us today at 503-363-2194 to schedule our professionals to assess your ductwork. We’ll help you improve your home and your bank account.
Residential Blower Door Testing
Blower door testing is an integral part of air-sealing and ventilation determination for your home. We utilize calibrated blower door testing as an accurate assessment to help our Day Energy Solutions professionals gauge air leakage rates and to identify leakage sources. In other words, we’re checking for your home’s airtightness. Here in Salem, Oregon this is one of the first steps we take as we conduct the analysis of your home.
This diagnostic testing allows our certified technicians to identify where you’re losing energy, thus money. The test results also allow our team to assemble a plan helping you to avoid or get rid of other issues that can arise from poor air sealing and ventilation. A couple of the larger issues our professionals commonly see are uncomfortable drafts from outdoor cold air leaking in and moisture-condensation problems. Blower door testing also assists the team in determining how much mechanical ventilation your home may need to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ).
Once our knowledgeable technicians have the test results and have made their highly accurate calculations, they’ll provide you with a comprehensive plan of action for your home. The team will go over your options in detail with you that will address your home’s issues, helping you to select the optimum course for your home and budget.

We qualified for tax rebates thanks to Day Energy! Salem, OR
“PGE notified us that our heating bill was off the charts when compared to the neighbors. I needed help identifying why my bill was so high. Ahren conducted both blower door air-leak and duct-leak tests to identify areas of leakage and pinpoint specific trouble spots in my heating and cooling system. He made recommendations for work he felt would be most cost effective and result in greatest improvement in comfort, efficiency and air quality and even prioritized the project for the highest possible return. This company is thorough and goes above and beyond!”
– Sue D
Honest, ethical and always a great job in Salem, OR
“My experience has been excellent with Ahren and staff. I would hire him for any remodeling job. He is meticulous and explains everything extremely well. Previously he installed insulation under the house and it has cut down on my heating bill. Just a couple of months ago he installed grates over my gutters so I no longer have to have them cleaned. Always a great job. I highly recommend him. He is honest and ethical, which is important to me. They arrived at a little after nine a.m. and left at 1:10 p.m. They worked the entire time and completed the job. Ahren, Matt and another young man did the work.”
– Jean T.
We highly recommend this company in Salem, OR
“Our house stays warmer longer and is quieter too. Ahren is a perfectionist-just the kind of person you want working on your house. He takes his shoes off at the door and was great with our little dogs. We can highly recommend this company and would hire them again.”
– Julie M.
On time. Knowledgeable. And they cleaned up in Salem, OR
“On time for estimate and work days. Very knowledgeable about options to improve my house plus energy trust information. Ahren did all the paperwork for this. All staff was very polite and neat while working. Plus they really cleaned up after they were finished.”
– Eileen S.
He went above and beyond in Salem, OR
“I hired Ahren to increase the efficiency of my home heating system and to insulate my attic. Upon his initial inspection he found what appeared to be vermiculite as part of the current insulation in my attic. I would have expected someone in his position to inform me of the possibility of asbestos and suggest testing however the two other companies I requested quotes from did not. He researched companies that test for asbestos, and then called me with the necessary information. He completed the job and helped me prioritize and plan for the next stage of making my system more efficient and better improve the health and comfort of my home. Ahren went above and beyond what I consider responsible. He is thorough, competent, and a good educator. His level of integrity is beyond reproach.”
