Our heating and air conditioning systems might be the most under-appreciated parts of our homes, but they are definitely among the most important. These systems don't affect our comfort level all on their own. There are lots of factors that determine how warm or cool your house is. If your house is feeling a little uncomfortable this winter, there could be more than one reason why. Here are a few factors to consider:
Humid air holds heat longer and more effectively than dry air. If your house isn't staying warm, it could be that your indoor humidity levels are too low. Bump up the relative humidity, and you'll find your house stays warmer longer and that your HVAC is more efficient.
Humidity also affects your body and the way you feel when you're at home. Air that is too dry can cause dry, itchy skin, dry and irritated eyes, dry and inflamed sinuses, headaches, and asthma flare-ups. All of these can be combatted with a home humidifier, making your home and body more comfortable.
Leaky, drafty houses are hard to keep at a comfortable temperature. When cold air gets in around doors and windows that aren't sealed properly you'll find your house doesn't get to or stay at your desired temperature. Your energy bills could then show the effects and not in a good way. Sealing your doors and windows and making sure your attic and your walls are properly insulated can make all the difference in how comfortable your home is this winter.
Don't blame your house when it's uncomfortable in the winter, blame the HVAC system. If you don't have the right heating and air conditioning system in your home, you could be throwing your energy bill payments to the wind. Making sure you have the right size system, with the right capacity, and the right energy efficiency ratings, combined with the most effective thermostat for your needs is the best way to make sure your home is comfortable not just in the winter but year round.

Repair technician inspected newly installed thermostat, found installation error, and repaired. He then inspected the air handler and outside compressor. Discovered freon was leaking, topped off freon to hold me over, and made recommendations for future repairs and upgrades.
Response time was great - next day service, on a Saturday. Service fee was very reasonable, and the technician was polite, professional, and informative.
