Whether it is a brand new home, or a century-old mansion, any house can face the problem of air leakage. Any construction gaps with unsealed openings to the outside could bring in those cold chills in your warm and toasty home. When left unattended, drafty windows and doors can drop the internal temperatures by several degrees, which means your furnace is working overtime to maintain your desired set temperatures. Moreover, as per the U.S. Department of Energy, you can potentially save 10% to 20% on energy bills by reducing the air drafts in your home.
The HVAC specialists at Comfort Solutions want to make sure that your home or office remains warm and comfortable during the harsh, cold months ahead. Read on for some simple solutions that may help you batten down those hatches, and stop the drafty chill in your home.
When you are dealing with a draft, the first places you tend to check are the doors, windows, fireplaces, or attic hatches. However, do not overlook electrical outlets, dryer vents, or ceiling-to-wall joints, which could also be potential sources of drafts. Depending on the problem area that you identify, here are some options to stop the draft:
In addition to the drafts, do you find the air in your home to be too dry? It may be time to clean or replace your furnace filter. In fact, if you did not get a furnace tune-up before switching from air conditioning to heating, you may want to schedule a service at the earliest. The licensed and certified technicians at Comfort Solutions HVAC will thoroughly inspect your HVAC system and fix any potential problems to prevent breakdowns during the peak of winter. We also offer a cost-effective, energy-efficient, annual maintenance program to keep your furnace at peak performance.
