Got Home HVAC Issues? Consider a Whole-Home Comfort & Health EvaluationBilly Pell
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) issues in houses can be a real pain for homeowners. They make your home uncomfortable, and they usually force you to pay money to fix them that you don’t want to spend.
To make matters worse, the typical “fixes” for HVAC issues don’t always work. When that happens, you now have HVAC issues PLUS an empty wallet and maybe a bit of remorse for hiring that contractor that took your money and failed to help you.
Fortunately, there’s a better way. Whole-home comfort and health evaluations have been proven to better fix common issues in homes that typical fixes don’t solve.
What is a Whole-Home Comfort & Health Evaluation?
A whole-home comfort and health evaluation provides homeowners with valuable consumer information and tips that cover many aspects of home comfort including ways to reduce or eliminate common problems such as:
- Hot and cold spots
- Excessive dust
- Allergy and asthma suffering
- Dry or damp indoor air
- Unhealthy indoor air
- Noisy or unreliable heating/cooling equipment
- Excessive utility bills
It is more of a proactive approach to fixing issues in homes compared to the typical fixes that are more reactive. Common recommendations after a whole-home comfort evaluation include:
- Duct Sealing and Renovations
- Air Sealing
- Adding Insulation
- Attic Retrofitting
- Crawlspace Encapsulation
- Carbon Monoxide Inspection (Including damage to the HVAC unit),
Not only does insulation and air sealing help with the energy efficiency of your home, it also has many other benefits. Air sealing helps seal the holes in your home. This prevents chilly air from coming in, but also prevents pests from invading. This list also encompasses asthma triggers. Asthma triggers are what make asthma attacks occur. By reducing the number of triggers in the home, we can hopefully reduce the number of asthma attacks and other respiratory health problems. The Department of Energy, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the EPA, all highly suggest air sealing to help prevent these triggers.
If you truly care about the health and well-being of your family, there is no doubt a whole-home comfort and health evaluation is a big step in the right direction.
