I have a large, older house as well as it tends to be drafty in the winter and then overheated in the summer. Insufficient insulation as well as high ceilings cause the heating/cooling system to struggle to maintain an even temperature throughout. The majority of my budget goes directly to indoor temperature control. The situation is made even worse because the air duct runs through the attic as well as is impacted by the outdoor temperatures. The attic tends to be seriously tepid as well as sticky in the summer, and then it’s considerably cold and frigid in the winter. About a year ago, when an heating and air conditioning professional was handling the respected service of the cooling system, he suggested that I update the attic insulation. His corporation specializes in blown-in insulation which minimizes labor-costs, disruption to the house as well as mess. The blown-in insulation conforms to strange shapes to provide a superior seal. I hired the heating and air conditioning professional to come back in the fall as well as ensure that the attic is properly insulated as well as ventilated, and thankfully the process successfully trimmed thirty percent off my annual utility bills. The oil furnace as well as cooling system no longer run for such extensive cycles and can now more easily manage comfort levels. Because of reducing wear as well as tear, I expect the heating and cooling equipment to operate more reliability as well as last longer. The update in insulation has also eliminated drafts, tepid as well as frigid spots as well as minimized temperature stratification. I’ve observed less complications with excess humidity in the summer, and I think the home even smells better. I don’t need to clean as often, because there’s far less dust floating around in the air at any given moment. I am also looking for other strategies I can take to improve the energy efficiency, comfort as well as air quality of my home.
