You're wasting energy, and in turn, money. An HVAC contractor may tell you that the solution is a larger unit, capable of outputting a greater number of BTUs. He may also tell you that setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler in the winter, or a few degrees warmer in the summer, will solve the problem. Sure, the furnace or A/C unit may run less frequently now, but at what cost? Your comfort. Thermostats are meant for one thing: to keep your home at your desired temperature.
The real problem lies in the thermal & pressure boundaries of your home. The thermal boundary is defined by the walls, ceilings, and floors that contain (or lack) insulation. The pressure boundary is defined by the walls, ceilings, and floors that are or are not air-sealed. Often times, these two boundaries are not in line, as they should be. When a home leaks air and/or lacks proper insulation, heating and cooling appliances must work harder or more often to keep the home at your setpoint temperature.
By performing a comprehensive home energy assessment, we can determine where your thermal & pressure boundaries are, and where they should be. Our detailed report will outline problem areas of the home and our recommendations for correcting these deficiencies.
