Four Tips to Improve Family Home Comfort
Creating a comfortable home atmosphere has a lot to do with the temperature of your home. The way you use your HVAC system can greatly influence energy efficiency and performance quality, while also making your home a place you can be comfortable.
These four tips will help to improve home comfort and the full potential of your HVAC system:
Add 5 Degrees to Manage Heat Load
During the warmer seasons, the heat inside your house can reach unbelievable numbers, especially if you don’t turn on the air conditioning. The best way to handle the heat (without putting immense stress on your HVAC system) is to leave the air conditioner on while you’re out, but to set the thermostat five degrees warmer than where you’d set it if you were home. This helps to control the heat in your home and control unnecessary stress on your system, which saves your time and money in the long run.
Seal Your Windows
The cracks and crevices from windows may seem slight, can oftentimes cause uneven air temperature in your home. Hot and cold air from outside can easily enter the home and bring in allergens, as well. By properly sealing your windows, it can help eliminate anything that could alter the indoor air quality and temperature of your home.
Weather stripping and sealing windows, as well as doors, ultimately aids in lowering energy spending when using the HVAC system and keeps the air inside of your home cleaner.
Insulate Your Attic
Just like sealing windows, insulating the attic is one of the best ways to create a more comfortable home atmosphere. Attic insulation helps control the heat load in the attic space.
Use Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are surprisingly economical and efficient when used correctly.
Ceiling fans come with two settings. The first is for warmer weather – the blades spin counterclockwise. This movement causes the blades to blow air directly downward and into the center of the room. This movement creates a breezy feel by stirring up the air. Turn the fan on high for best effect.
The second setting is for the colder weather – the blades spin clockwise. This movement of the blades is designed to mix two bodies of stratified air by sucking in cold air from the bottom center and pushing warmer air from the top layer down to the sides. Turn the fan on low for best effect.
