Let an HVAC Contractor Help You Save the Heat Produced by Your Heating System!
No matter how well your heating system functions and how little maintenance it needs, if your home is not designed to keep the warm air, it will be very hard for you to reduce your utility bills during the cold winter months. Today, the experienced HVAC contractor, AirTemp Services, of Texarkana, TX, has decided to “draw a map” of your home and explain to you where this energy could possibly be escaping from.
– flue loss – your chimney can be a significant area of heat loss
– wall loss- 25-30%
– ventilation loss – 25%
– floor loss – 7-10%
– roof loss – 30-35%
– window loss – 15%
In order to prevent all these losses, you must:
Check the proper insulation of your floors and attic – The higher R-value they have, the better ability it has to resist heat travelling through it.
Install energy-efficient windows – If your budget is tight, you can improve the energy efficiency of existing windows by adding storm windows, caulking, and weatherstripping, as well as window treatments and coverings.
Install proper ductwork sealing – About 20% of the air that moves through the duct system in a home with a forced-air heating and cooling system is lost due to holes, leaks, and poorly connected ducts.
If you need help to reduce your utility bills during the winter, you can consult a heating service provider from our team. For more information, you can contact us at (903) 278-4526!
