If you're having trouble maintaining comfortable temperatures, here are some reasons why:
Ever seen a cold drink in a glass develop condensation? That's exchange of energy. The liquid inside the glass gains heat from the outside air's temperature. Your home works the same way - when heat from the outside gets inside, your air conditioner turns on.
During your home's building process, insulation is installed in the attic, ceiling, and walls to reduce the amount of energy transfer. Even the HVAC ducts are insulated to cut down on how much air is being lost.
When your utility bill starts to rise, contacting your local HVAC professional is the best place to start. A technician will detect any unsealed drafts, leaky ducts, faulty thermostats, or inefficient insulation. Often times it's not lack of insulation, but lack of maintenance.
The best way to combat HVAC efficiency is with preventative maintenance. For scheduling, call 72 Degrees Comfort Company at 515-965-7272 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
