HVAC Tips and Suggestions

In the wintertime, heating can be extremely expensive and fairly difficult to manage particularly if you are in an older home which has a lot of inefficiencies which need to be repaired. In cases such as this, you might want to consider hiring a professional Colorado Springs heating and air conditioning technician to check out your home and assess what you might need. Otherwise, at the very least, you want to make sure that you read heating and air conditioning Colorado Springs blog’s like this one for further information on what to look for.

 There are a number of reasons why you might have a cold room that is a bit chillier in your house over the other rooms. One of the less considered reasons is the fact that your home might have very high ceiling space, this allows for greater airflow and for the air to essentially rise much higher than the comfort level where most people will be sitting in the room. A way to maximize the heat in an area that there might be a bit more ceiling space in, is to install and invest in some reversible ceiling fans to create a mixture of air that will lower all this space to be heated evenly and properly.

 Another problem that many people often will run into with older homes and even some newer homes is having inadequate insulation within the walls themselves. This can also apply it to the roof and attic area as well which can dramatically impact how warm your overall home is. There are a couple different solutions to this problem, but typically the easiest one to do is to add insulation appropriately and me most affected areas. This can either be done with blown and or fall in low access areas, or you can use fiberglass or loose fill blow and he added in a roof storage areas. You generally will want to use fiberglass in the basements and across ceilings as well given how.

 Another common issue that many new homeowners will run into is having inadequate roof vents along the eaves to circulate airflow and vent the roof cavity. A really simple way to solve this issue is to either have you or professional install attic vents in the ventilation and soffit chutes to help aid in overall air circulation. The last thing that many people often will forget about and simply not considering the overall heating of their home is poorly insulated floor spaces, typically the most common of which are the ride, basement, and crawl spaces. All you really need to do in this particular case is to insulate the Florida living area and add supplemental heat to unheated areas below. Always remember to consult a professional before doing any of these more complicated types of fixes. Call Gene’s Heating and Air today!
