Importance of energy efficiency in your home
The purpose of having HVAC systems with energy efficiency is to make sure the occupants of your home are receiving fresh, filtered air that is being evenly distributed throughout your home. Do you ever feel like there are certain parts of your home that warm up or cool down faster than the rest? If so, this is one symptom of having a poor air system that is wasting energy and money. Indoor air quality can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air, causing sicknesses and health ailments such as asthma and allergies.
There are specific tasks within your home that must be handled by experts who know exactly what to look for and exactly how to fix any potential problems. Some of these tasks include filtering air, controlling humidity, and making sure conditioned air is evenly distributed
Every cubic foot of your home can contain millions of airborne pollutants. One way to regulate them is by controlling the humidity levels in your home. Too much humidity can cause mildew and mold, where as too little can ruin your wood furnishings and make your body more susceptible to infections.
Maintaining the energy efficiency of your HVAC system will not only make your home a healthier place to live, but it will also make it more comfortable and less expensive. Routine maintenance and tune ups are necessary for checking the thermostat settings, electrical connections, and air leakage. Midway Services has the necessary diagnostic tools and instruments to spot any existing air/duct leaks and to measure things such as your home’s humidity levels, problems with the insulation and sealing, and air infiltration.
The blower door test locates and measures air leaks; it is a diagnostic tool that is used to find the source of problems such as high utility bills, allergy and asthma problems, and dust. It is able to capture over all building infiltration as well as duct leakage. While people once believed duct leakages were minor, they can actually significantly reduce the functionality of HVAC systems and lose as much as 40% of their received cooling energy.
Another option for reaching HVAC energy efficiency is zoning your home so that you can control which areas warm up and cool down, and when they do so. You obviously use certain areas of your home more than others. There is no reason you should be paying for them to all be receiving the same amount of air.
