5 Ways You Can Avoid Heat Loss in Your Home
Climate Control Company wants you to stay warm this winter. Our team of HVAC contractors has a variety of solutions to help you, including duct sealing. These five tips can help you avoid heat loss this winter and save you money as well.
Properly insulating your home can lower your overall energy bills and help keep your house warm during the winter. Warm air can escape from the walls, roof, and other parts of your house. Insulation material can be blown into the walls and loft area to fill in any gaps. You can also look at options such as insulation boards. These can be added to the walls in varying thicknesses for insulation.
2. Duct Sealing
One of the services we offer those in Glenwood Springs, Vail, and Roaring Fork, CO, is duct sealing to help ensure that your HVAC system is sealed properly. Our team at Climate Control Company uses Aeroseal. This water-based formula is designed to seal all of the holes in the air ducts to improve performance. We can show you a before and after to see how well it worked in your home.
3. Replacing Windows
Windows can make up to 20% of the surface of your walls. Older windows can develop cracks and gaps over time, but you can use putty or a sealant to close these gaps. You can also replace the windows with new ones that have built-in insulation. Weather-strip seals can also be added. These have either self-adhesive backings or can be nailed in place. There is even the option of window films. These can reduce the number of UV rays let in and when used with seals, it can reduce the amount of heat that escapes.
4. Replacing Doors
Some doors have gaps at the bottom that can let in a draft. You can add strips to the bottoms of the door and frames to help seal them internally and externally. Caulking can also be added to the door frames to reduce air leakage even further. This can help your heating system last longer because it isn’t having to work so hard to heat your home.
5. Adding Curtains
Besides duct sealing and other techniques, heavy-duty curtains can add some extra insulation to your home. There are even options to add thermal linings to your existing curtains as well.
