Creating a comfortable home environment can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know where to start. It’s one of the biggest headaches for those who live in older homes, which are often plagued with issues that can make relaxing comfortably next to impossible. While many homeowners don’t know why they’re uncomfortable, it’s often possible to find the source of the problem. Finding and solving your home’s comfort and efficiency issues is our bread and butter.
What is Home Performance?
Home performance is a whole-home approach to comfort, energy efficiency and home energy costs. Home performance analyzes all the interacting systems in your home (HVAC, occupants, appliances, climate, etc) to make full, holistic home upgrades that benefit all of your home’s systems and help you achieve real efficiency and comfort.
Factors Affecting Home Performance
It’s important to realize that there are a multitude of different things that can factor into home performance. Chief among all of these are air sealing and insulation, which many people in the industry believe to be the most important aspects of to focus on. It doesn’t matter whether or not your heating and cooling systems are the best on the market—they’re not going to operate at capacity if poor air sealing and insulation is allowing the conditioned (that is, heated or cooled) air to escape.
While beefing up air sealing and insulation can help make your home more comfortable, these two factors are far from being the only that can affect home comfort. For this reason, we believe that all homeowners owe it to themselves to look deeper into whether or not their systems are operating properly.
