  • Common Problems in Your Home that Can Be Targeted and Remedied with Weatherization

    No matter how efficient your HVAC equipment is, your family may experience comfort problems this winter if your home is not properly weatherized. Many comfort issues are due to drafts, air leaks, and other problems that can be rectified with weatherization measures. Weatherization can include low- and no-cost measures that improve your home’s energy efficiency and targeted investments that increase your comfort in all seasons.

    Rooms with large windows or older windows are often uncomfortable in the winter. This is due to cold air seeping in and causing drafts. Drafts can also come in under doors or through the attic. Weatherization measures for drafts typically include caulking around windows and adding weatherstripping around doors. You should try to identify the areas of air infiltration and provide targeted solutions. Your home’s building envelope can have several areas where air enters the walls of your home.

    Cold Rooms and High Bills
    Even if your furnace has been going full blast, you might experience chilly rooms without adequate heating if you have problems with your insulation and ductwork. Attic insulation is very important when it comes to preserving the internal temperature of your home. Inadequate or patchy levels of installation promote air infiltration and heat transfer. This results in energy loss, higher utility bills, and discomfort.

    HVAC Problems
    One of the most important parts of home weatherization is making sure that your heating system is ready for the season . This includes changing your air filter to improve airflow and indoor air quality and having your furnace tuned by a professional heating and A/C repair company. Consider having a thorough energy audit performed on your home to identify sources of energy loss and discomfort. Improvements made to your home’s HVAC system can make all the difference when it comes to your comfort and your utility bills.
