Our Approach to Energy Conservation
At Stan’s, we believe in a Whole House Approach that looks into any and all factors that may affect your home’s energy consumption. As part of that approach, our Austin energy conservation specialists look into your home’s ductwork, insulation, window shades, and HVAC unit to identify what changes can be made to help you save on heating and cooling bills.
Air Duct Sealing & Repair
Air duct maintenance is a simple way to increase the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system. Older HVAC units have a higher probability of developing air duct leaks. Without proper air duct sealing, your home’s HVAC unit will have to work harder to heat and cool your home, resulting in higher electricity bills.
Signs of Air Duct Leaks
Some signs that your air ducts may be leaking or do not have adequate insulation include:
- HVAC unit frequently cycles on
- Uneven temperatures from room to room
- Increased dust around your home
- High utility bills
If you suspect your home has leaking or under-insulated air ducts, our technicians can help. During our free energy audit, we’ll inspect your air ducts to check for airflow and leaks.
Adding insulation to your home can be an easy and cost-effective way to increase your home’s efficiency. Insulation is a fibrous material, typically made of fiberglass, that helps to slow down the transfer of heat. Adding insulation to your attic helps keep heat out of your home during the summer while adding it below your floor allows your home to contain heat in the winter. If you’re interested in learning more about our insulation services, contact us to help determine how much insulation is needed for your home’s size! We offer blow-in insulation installation and also replace insulation where it may be outdated or insufficient.
Solar Window Shades
Windows allow much-needed sunlight to enter your home, but they also allow the thermal energy associated with it to heat up your home. While double-pane windows filled with argon gas can be a great update to keep heat out, they can be expensive and not fully efficient at blocking thermal energy from entering your home. That’s why Stan’s is proud to offer solar shades as a cheaper alternative. Solar shades are made of fabric mesh that is designed to create a buffer where the sun’s thermal energy can be released instead of entering your home. Solar window shades look like window screens meant to keep bugs out, but they cover the entire window instead of just the bottom window opening.

“I have used Stan’s to both give my air-con units a tune-up before the summer heat and to provide more airflow to one room in the house that was just not getting as cool as the rest of the house. The check-up exceeded my expectations and the technician cleaned all 3 outside units far better than I ever would have expected. The additional duct work they did was also completed quickly and professionally and appears to have done the trick.”

“I can’t say enough good things about Stan’s! Stan’s recently replaced all of our ductwork and their project manager David Renault who worked with us was amazing! He redesigned the ducts giving us much better and more efficient airflow. David also took into account our beloved attic fan that we use in the beautiful spring and fall Austin weather, and made certain our insulation worked with the fan. All of their employees, including subcontractors, who came and worked on our house were very professional and respectful of our home. I would highly recommend Stan’s to anyone who cares about their home and the air quality inside.”
– Audrey Strauss
“We moved into an older house that needed a lot of air conditioning upgrades. New to Austin, I feel like we were lucky to have picked out Stan’s to do the work. They replaced a complete system, installed new ductwork and insulation quickly and efficiently. Additionally, they made sure that we got all the rebates and knew about all the appropriate tax credits. We’ve been on their Gold Star list ever since and are always impressed with the techs that they send out to keep our systems in good order.Great folks to do business with.”
