A whole-home comfort evaluation provides homeowners with valuable consumer information and tips that cover many aspects of home comfort including ways to reduce or eliminate common problems such as:
- Hot and cold spots
- Excessive dust
- Allergy and asthma suffering
- Dry or damp indoor air
- Unhealthy indoor air
- Noisy or unreliable heating/cooling equipment
- Excessive utility bills
Common recommendations after a whole-home comfort evaluation include:
- Duct Sealing and Renovations
- Air Sealing
- Adding Insulation
- Attic Retrofitting
- Crawlspace Encapsulation
- Carbon Monoxide Inspection (Including damage to the HVAC unit)
Not only does insulation and air sealing help with the energy efficiency of your home, it also has many other benefits. Air sealing helps seal the holes in your home. This prevents chilly air from coming in, but also prevents pests from invading. This list also encompasses asthma triggers. Asthma triggers are what make asthma attacks occur. By reducing the number of triggers in the home, we can hopefully reduce the number of asthma attacks and other respiratory health problems. The Department of Energy, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the EPA, all highly suggest air sealing to help prevent these triggers.
If you truly care about the health and well-being of your family, there is no doubt a whole-home comfort and health evaluation is a big step in the right direction.
