Where Is All My Heat Going? My House Is Always Cold
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Sealing Windows helps HVAC efficiency rise

Are you feeling the chill in your home this winter? It may be time to pay attention to energy efficiency.

Energy efficiency is a concern for most people but especially in the winter months when the air outside gets cooler, and the furnace in the house is running. But what if your house isn't feeling all that warm when the heat is on? Where is the heat going? Here are some reasons your house might not be as energy efficient, or as warm, as you'd like:

Insulation Is Key

One of the best and most effective ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home is with proper insulation in your attic and your walls. Not only will it help keep the cold air out and the warm air in during the winter, it will also do the opposite in the summer. It's one of the first and best ways to reduce your energy usage and your energy bill.

Seal It Up

Checking your windows and door for proper sealing is a great idea if you feel like your house isn't retaining the heat. Statistics show that 15-30% of your energy bills could be due to doors and windows that let in cold air, making it harder for your furnace to do its job. If you feel any cool air around your doors and windows, apply a good sealant to help keep that air outside where it belongs.

The Right System Makes a Difference

The right HVAC system can make the difference between being cold and miserable and warm and comfortable in your home this winter. The right size, the right capacity, and the right energy efficiency ratings are all factors that affect whether or not your heating system is doing its job to keep your house warm.

If you're tired of being cold in your home during the winter months, it could be time to upgrade your energy efficiency with a new HVAC system. In fact, it may be time to take a look at some of the reliable products available at All City Heating and Air. For more help, simply contact us or call All City Heat and Air at 704-545-2000 today.

Needed an estimate on a new heat pump for an older home. I loved this company! They were completely professional and gave a very competitive estimate. They didn't offer the brand name I was looking for so I elected to go with another company for the work, but I would highly recommend these guys. They were happy to educate me about the questions I should be asking service providers, and even when I told them I would be going with another company, they still gave me a list of questions to ask the vendor. If I didn't demand Trane, I would have happily let this company perform the work. Just a great company.
