Asbestos Danger: What to Do If Your House is Exposed

Is your house built prior to 1980? Then it probably holds an asbestos danger. This material was a big thing back in the days but now a lot of people are aware that it is not safe. And if you live in an old house, then you probably are exposed to asbestos. It might not be very good for your health. This material is harmless when intact, but in the old buildings it tends to deteriorate within time. Asbestos breaks into tiny particles that are easy to inhale. If it happens on a daily basis for some time, it may lead to the development of different lung diseases — and you probably don’t want it to happen. Also, asbestos can easily trigger allergies and difficulties breathing.

How to Eliminate the Asbestos Danger?

Don’t start panicking and looking for a new house just yet! Here at Fuse we have some suggestions on how to limit the asbestos danger. The main ways to do so are getting a new ductwork or a ductless HVAC system. Here is a bit about both.

Ductless HVAC System

This type of system has a number of advantages:

  • It is installed with the built-in zoning. That means that you won’t heat or cool areas you are not using when you are sleeping or away from a particular room.
  • Most ductless systems are high-efficiency equipment — usually SEER starts from 18. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is the ratio of the cooling output of an air conditioner over a typical cooling season, divided by the energy it uses in Watt-Hours.
  • The equipment of ductless systems are really compact and neat. It won’t take much space in your house and it wouldn’t look bad in the interior design.
  • It has super quiet condenser units. We even made some tests with the equipment measuring the noise produced by units. They are very silent and it means they are the best for the local codes.

New Flex Ductwork

  • When it comes to new flex ductwork, it also has some advantages:
  • With the R8 insulated ductwork there should not be any energy loss because it has a special protection from it.
  • At Fuse we use the modern-day technology during the installation meaning that there won’t be harmful residuals.
  • With the new ductwork we can install a hi-tech air filtration. That means that your air will be super safe for kids, animals and adults. Even for those who have allergies.

At FUSE we regularly install both new ductwork and ductless HVAC systems and are truly professional in the matter. In case you think you might be exposed to asbestos, we would recommend having a professional check-up for the indoor air quality. Then FUSE can help you with the installation of the ductless HVAC system or new ductwork and get rid of the asbestos danger once and for all.

We chose Fuse to do the HVAC portion of our home remodel and we're very happy with their work! They installed a full Mitsubishi Mini-split heat pump system all throughout our house in 6 rooms. It was a massive job and they did the work relatively quickly and efficiently. The supervisor, Maxim, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Out of several bids that we got, theirs was the only one that gave us everything we wanted at a competitive cost. We'd be happy to recommend Fuse! We also had Fuse Electric work on the electrical portion of our home remodel, for which I wrote up a separate review.

We got our duct work completely replaced in our 50 yr old home. They recommended the work, other companies didn't do this much due diligence and mentioned about asbestos but FUSE technicians went step ahead and climbed into attic and our crawl space to ensure there were no asbestos to begin with. Honest people and very competitive if not best quote I got. Moreover the installer, David and Jeremy worked 2 long days non stop to get work done at our home with 100% satisfaction. David explained everything to me and provided other recommendations for future. He is the most honest technician I have encountered in so long. Because of David I wouldn't hesitate to work with FUSE again. Thank you for such a great work. Very happy and highly recommend FUSE!!

The technical crews were excellent; very knowledgeable and capable. They were able to do our HVAC, water heater and ductwork replacement even when faced with several unexpected and very challenging situations. David in particular worked some very long hours to get everything installed correctly. The administration side had a few glitches, but everything worked out OK. I would recommend them, but if you are eligible for the Penninsula Clean Energy interest free loan, be sure to apply for it before the work is completed.

Exceptional service from FUSE HVAC! They installed a Mitsubishi HVAC system in our home, and we couldn't be happier. The team was professional, knowledgeable, and efficient throughout the process. Our home is now perfectly comfortable year-round, thanks to their expertise. From consultation to installation, everything was seamless and hassle-free. Highly recommend FUSE HVAC for anyone looking for top-notch HVAC solutions!

Fuse HVAC installed Mitsubishi Heat pump in my house and completed the project on 31st March 2024. David and Jeremy started the project and David finished the installation. David worked Saturday and Sunday until 11 PM to complete the work. It took 4 1/2 days. I am very happy with the work that David performed. I was watching the process of installation of the pump and was very satisfied to see that after finishing each step David will spend 10-15 min inspecting the work that he did to make sure that there was no mistake. The result was that during pressure testing to check for gas leakage or when the heat pump was run there was no unanticipated issue. The new ductwork that was installed by FUSE passed the HERS test. FUSE is also installing the attic fan to keep the air circulation going and keep the attic cooler. FUSE was referred to by my friend who used them for installing a similar heat pump and although they were a little more expensive than a few quotes I got from other vendors, I decided to go with them based on my friend's recommendation. I had made a right choice! My only criticism for FUSE is they are not able to estimate the time that it will take to finish the project. They told me it will be done in 3 days but it took 4 1/2 days. My project needed the air handler to be moved to the attic but because the space which had the gas heater was too narrow for the air handler. On the whole it was a good experience working with FUSE. They kept us warm for two days with heater fans and David worked Easter Sunday until 11 PM to install and start up the system without hurrying up at any step to get the installation completed earlier. A big thanks to him and to his assistant Jeremy!
