3 Reasons Why Homeowners Love Home Performance Contracting

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is more than just your box-shaped equipment. The whole home is the HVAC system with three main components. They can be explained referencing a three-legged stool.

What is the Three-Legged Stool of HVAC?

  • Leg 1: HVAC equipment (furnaces, AC units)
  • Leg 2: Ductwork
  • Leg 3: Thermal Envelope

Reason #1: Ensure No Problems Arise in the Future “Extreme” Season (e.g. Winter, Summer).

Be a proactive homeowner. View the fall and spring as your proactive seasons to ensure your home remains comfortable and efficient for your lifestyle during the winter and summer when there’s a greater need for heating and cooling.



Reason #2: Extend the Life of Your HVAC Equipment.

The proactive seasons (e.g. Fall, Spring) are great times to have an HVAC contractor trained in home performance contracting perform maintenance on your home that can extend the life of your HVAC equipment (e.g. furnace, air conditioning unit).



Reason #3: Make Your Home More Comfortable.

As a homeowner, you want to feel comfortable in your own home, and there’s more to feeling comfortable than fixing your HVAC equipment when it breaks.

There are many additional ways to make homes more comfortable that don’t involve your HVAC equipment. Here are some common non-equipment ways to improve home comfort:

  • Indoor air quality (IAQ) products such as air purifiers, ventilators, and CO alarms
  • Duct Sealing
  • Humidifiers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Zone Systems
