Benefits of a Whole House Comfort Check

January 17, 2020

Winters are chilly, and January and February are the months that you begin to notice all of the leaking windows and other sources of drafts around your house. You want every square foot of your house to be equally comfortable, so there shouldn’t be cold spots anywhere.

The best way to identify problem spots is to arrange for a professional to analyze the performance of your home.

Here are X benefits of a whole-home comfort check.

GET RID OF DRAFTS

One of the biggest frustrations that many homeowners feel during the winter are drafts that won’t go away. When you have your house checked over by an HVAC professional, they’ll be able to pinpoint the places you’re losing heat. For instance, you might have heat escaping through your roof because it’s not insulated well enough. Otherwise, you might have a leak in an old door. Once the HVAC professional identifies where you’re home is losing energy, they can recommend effective solutions.

PURIFY THE AIR

Many people suffer from the effects of seasonal and household allergens, and your HVAC system should be doing a lot of the work in purifying the air that you breathe. Whether you’re allergic to dust or pollen, your furnace and air conditioner can help get rid of most of what’s causing you to feel under the weather.

Changing your filter every 30 to 90 days is one of your best ways to purify the air, but you can talk to your HVAC technician about other solutions such as a professional duct cleaning, which will remove the buildup of dust, debris and other contaminates.

CHECK HUMIDITY LEVELS

Many people suffer from dry nasal passageways and sore throats during the winter. Symptoms can be exacerbated if the humidity levels in your home are too low. Your ventilation system can be used to stabilize humidity levels, and an HVAC technician can tell you how.

Bottom line: Your central air system plays a huge role in how comfortable you feel in your home. Talk to an HVAC technician to learn how you can maximize your comfort and even minimize your energy costs. To schedule an appointment with Hagerstown Heating & Cooling, call us at (240) 366-0329.
